Yacht Floor Heating

Super comfortable heating

Water filled floor heating-systems for ships.

From small boats to mega yachts!

Houses, cottages, mobile homes, trailers etc. etc…

If you would like more information, please feel free to send us an email to info@yfh.nl with your contact details. We will contact you as soon as possible.

Yacht Floor-Heating B.V. is part of the TSB Group.

We have a 20 year history and experience in floor heating-systems for utility-construction, house-construction and fishing fleets.

After years of research and development, the Yacht Floor-Heating water filled floor heating-system can now also be integrated into existing wooden floors.

Through a special developed procedure (by Yacht-Floor-Heating B.V.), yacht owners, industrial shipping and of course owners of houses, cottages, mobile homes and trailers can get the advantages and the comfort associated with this system.

The Yacht Floor-Heating system can be used in new housing developments, renovations and refits.

The development, delivery and installation of the floor heating-systems are fully controlled by our own management team.

Yacht Floor-Heating B.V. is continually improving and developing their floor heating-systems.

The installations are developed by us as a main heating source.

With this system as the main heating source, the temperature control can be separately regulated by the use of individual thermostats.

Every room can then be installed with floor heating, which will be controlled by its own thermostat. This will open or close a valve, which is dependant upon the required temperature in that room.

In reality it is managed so that a bedroom may be 12?C but the bathroom next door could be 24?C, the lounge could be 22?C and a possible guestroom could be 17?C, for instance.

Also available is the option of heating the pedestrian areas of the outside deck. The gangway, front and aft, but also the railings (at the development stage) can be integrated in the heating system. This system can be adjusted, so that it will only react when the outside temperature gets below 5?C. The system will then automatically open a valve, which will keep your decks, gangways and railings free of any ice and relatively dry.

A floor heating-system can only work properly when a good heat source with enough capacity is used. In combining our knowledge with excellent cooperation from Kabola Heating Systems, it is possible for us to install our pump units with 12 and 24 Volts.

By choosing the Yacht Floor-Heating system and the Kabola central-heating boiler, you have chosen the best combination in heating-systems for comfort that money can buy.

The floor heating-system will be installed by the use of a rotary cultivator, after consultation with the shipyard, into the sheet material floor with a minimum thickness of 18mm.

The optimal strength must be brought back into the floor, after installing the hoses.

This is reached by the use of a specially developed YFH synthetic resin, which will not attach to the hoses and will provide a very strong sheet material.

The thermal power is determined by the heart-to-heart distance of the hoses and dependant upon the floor surface per area.

There is also a possibility for room conditioning by use of cooled water, but the installation must then be equipped with an anti-condensation regulator.

When floor heating has been installed by us, normally every type of floor covering can be fitted. When purchasing a floor covering you must indicate to the supplier that your floors will be fitted with floor heating.

Your supplier can advise you on the suitable floor coverings.

In this example you can see the application of different kinds of floor material.

Several kinds of floor covering have been used after installation of our floor heating system:
Parquet floor varying in cross-section of 4mm to 26mm
Decorative plates with stripes 6mm
Teak cover incl. floor-wood
Flexiteek, Cork, etc. etc.
Laminate in several types and measures, 6mm to 12 mm
Ceramic tiles in several types and sizes
Textile floor covering incl.underlay Aluminium tear-plate, etc. etc

- All areas on board can have their own temperature by use of separate thermostats.
- Equally divided warmth throughout the entire areas.
- Very comfortable relative air humidity on board, as a result of which, condensation will be restricted to a minimum and even reduced to zero when thermal glass is used
- No thermal drafts on the floors
- Difference in temperature between the floors and ceilings of only 2?C. With use of radiators and hot-air heating, the difference could become 12?C
- No fitting of heavy radiators
- No convector reservoirs in the casing, thus saving space, time and costs
- No expensive grating and/or other openings in the casing
- Low noise level and no irritations associated with hot-air heating systems.
- The decks under the convertible roof and wheel-house can be heated
- The construction at the steering position and the windscreens can be heated

We realise that your vessel is a total package, and we might be one possible component.

Even identical vessels from the same shipyard, have different interiors and contents.
The rooms on board every vessel are different. The thermal capacity for every room is separately calculated by use of the effective floor surfaces, contents and insulation values.

We can only provide a quotation based on a drawing provided by the owner or by physically measuring the vessel ourselves.

If you would like a full quotation for your vessel, without obligation, do not hesitate to contact us immediately.
