top-Nopp® mini nub system

The mini-solution for modernisation

The EMPUR® top-Nopp® mini system components consist of a wear-resistant, deep-drawn castellated film and are perfectly supplemented with the KLIMAPEX® high-quality plastic heating pipes. The “mini nub system” can be used whenever a low installation height is required.
The system panels are available in two versions: for 12x1.5 pipes and 15x1.8 pipes. Following pre-treatment (priming) with the required levelling compound, the system is installed as a composite structure onto the existing floor lining or raw floor, but not directly onto a concrete floor. During installation the nub panel is fixed to the floor with an adhesive layer underneath it. The double-sided film overhang enables neat laying of the panels. The components can be connected easily, with minimum material loss and in a short time using the press stud method afforded by the male and female nubs, which are arranged in a single row.
The KLIMAPEX® plastic heating pipes are clicked into the nub structure and fastened using perfectly fitting pipe retaining nubs. Thanks to the ideal nub arrangement, the heating pipes can be positioned at different layout distances with ease and flexibility. The heating pipe is uniformly covered with special, thin-layer screed.
The mini nub system components are all developed by EMPUR® and produced in-house in Germany.
