Ceiling heating with the climate ceiling made of clay

Enjoy maximum cosiness and healthy comfort in your home: Pleasant warmth and gentle cooling with the clay climate ceiling.  A ceiling heating made of clay heats your house, flat or office with gentle and cosy radiant heat. This infrared heating is invisibly integrated into the ceiling, does not require any radiators at all and thus contributes to a beautiful aesthetic in your living spaces. The pleasant heat radiation - comparable to the infrared rays of the sun - is perceived by the human body as particularly beneficial. Even large, high rooms can be heated effectively and evenly with the ceiling.


Infrared ceiling heating - electric or with hot water?

Infrared ceiling heating - electric or water-bearing?  The WEM ceiling heating is available as an electric heating (Climate Panel EL) and as a water-bearing variant (Climate Panel MV-D). It can be used in old buildings, new buildings or renovations.  Let us advise you and we will find the optimal solution for your project. The water-operated ceiling heating system is suitable for all areas of application, the electric heating system can be used as a sole heating system (e.g. in combination with photovoltaics) or for rooms or houses that are only used temporarily.

With both systems, the ceilings emit a discreet heat that is distributed evenly in the room by permanent reflections and gently tempers walls and objects. With ceiling heating, the proportion of radiation amounts to approx. 90 % and is thus higher than with other surface heating systems on walls and floors.

Ceiling Heating in dry construction

The WEM dry construction system made of clay for the ceiling - heating and cooling with one system.  Compared to other radiant ceiling panels, the WEM drywall ceiling heating system stands out due to a number of factors: It ensures a good indoor climate and optimal humidity in the room, and it is a climate-friendly system. The heavy building material clay provides for sound and noise reduction. A heating system on the ceiling goes without rules where to place your furniture (compared to wall heating where you should not place a big cupboard in front of the wall). The climate panels are quickly and easily installed in dry construction - in principle like any other finishing panel - on flat substrates or substructures. The work is not only feasible for professionals, but also for talented do-it-yourselfers. With the help of the system components, a flat ceiling surface is created, which is then covered with a thin finishing plaster. Clay is a safe material for heating and cooling because it has a high moisture-balancing effect.

Sound insulation with ceiling heating

Best sound insulation - scientifically tested. The two different clay panels - with and without heating pipes - from which the ceiling heating construction is made, were tested by the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences for their sound insulation properties. Scientific measurements were carried out in a measuring chamber, which yielded very good results for sound insulation. The clay as a heavy material is mainly responsible for the sound reduction.

Installation in new building

In this new building, WEM climate panels were placed specifically in zones near the windows on ceilings and walls. The remaining areas were levelled with clay panels without water-bearing pipes. The solid clay panels ensure optimal humidity in the rooms.

Further installation examples

Installation example old building

Retrofitting with clay ceiling heating in a house or flat is possible even when the building is occupied. Here, the building owners have achieved a whole new sense of space with the WEM system. Aesthetic plus point: The ambience remains undisturbed by disturbing radiators.

Further installation examples

Ceiling heating installation

Step 1
The climate panels are lifted to the ceiling with the help of a panel lifter and fixed with screws.


Step 2
The panels are connected to each other and form a heating circuit which is then connected to the manifold.


Step 3
Fitting the clay panels with previously sawn recesses for the pipes...


Step 4
The finished ceiling surface is completely covered with WEM clay plaster.

Ceiling heating with heat pump

Ceiling heating, like other surface heating systems, can be operated with heat pumps, solar and condensing boiler technology. The flow temperature for ceiling heating should not be higher than approx. 35 degrees so that the heat is perceived as pleasant. To ensure that everything fits exactly, we at WEM will prepare a calculation for your building project, taking into account the individual circumstances. This is important because the need for heating surfaces varies depending on the insulation standard, climate data and use of the rooms. Of course, you will also receive comprehensive advice over the phone.


Costs of a ceiling heating system

The costs and the price of ceiling heating for a building are precisely determined by us - many factors such as insulation, wall construction or the occupancy of the rooms play a role here. For example, you need much less surface to heat a new building in passive house standard than an old building without special thermal insulation measures. We prepare a precise calculation in each case, taking into account the heating requirements of your house. So you will know what is good for your house and what it will cost you exactly. Since our systems include all components from the heating pipes to the connection technology,  the heating circuit manifolds, the plaster and paints for the surface, you will find out what the costs will be. Furthermore, you can be sure that all parts fit together and the system works perfectly.

Ask for your individual quotation!
