top-Nopp® nub system

Works like a press stud

The EMPUR® top-Nopp® system components consist of a completely foam-backed, wear-resistant castellated film and are perfectly supplemented with the KLIMAPEX® high-quality plastic heating pipes.
The double-sided film overhang enables neat laying of the panels. The two components can be connected easily and with minimum material loss 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. The laying grid is indicated by the arrangement of the nubs and makes it significantly easier to keep to the layout distances. To ensure good heat transfer, the heating pipe is uniformly covered with screed.
The nub system components are all developed by EMPUR® and produced in-house in Germany.

The EMPUR® nub System has many uses: 

  • in new and old buildings
  • in residential and commercial buildings
  • in single family houses and buildings for multiple families
  • in industrial buildings, in public areas and sports facilities
