radiant floor aluminum plates
radiant floor aluminum plates are installed between the floor joists to provide heat transfer across the bottom of the plywood.
The 1/2" BPEX tubing fits snuggly into round channels formed into the aluminum. This heat transfer from the tubing to the aluminum plate greatly increases the amount of heat delivered by the tubing to the floor, and additionally keeps the temperatures across the floor more evenly distributed.

Aluminum heat transfer plates can be stapled to the plywood using an electric stapler. Space should be left between the ends of the plates to allow for expansion of the aluminum.
