- Tilemaster Calculator: best practice when laying a tiled or decorative/ vinyl floor finish
We design underfloor heating products to work with all floor constructions, deliver the best in heating or cooling performance and maximise the efficiency of a heat source. Timoleon products are independently tested, completely unobtrusive and offer a more comfortable living environment.
LAYFAST TECHNOLOGY – Our new LayFast technology incorporates multidirectional panels with ball routed channels, making the systems faster to lay than ever before.
ULTRALOW TECHNOLOGY – Our new UltraLow technology enables some of our systems to achieve build up as low as 15mm. That is thinner than a five pence piece.
DRYSYSTEM TECHNOLOGY – DrySystem technology means no wet trades are needed for installation. All our products for timber floors feature DrySystem technology.
TILEOVER TECHNOLOGY – TileOver technology enables a tiled floor finish to be achieved even with our dry construction and insulation based underfloor heating systems with no loss of performance.

OMNIE supply the best in class Heat Pumps including Ground & Air Source extraction. All our heat pumps are made in Germany and deliver the very best in heating performance regardless of application. Please contact us with your project requirements and we will find the right heat pump solution for you.
Our brand new OMNIE TOUCH smart thermostat delivers precise zone control of underfloor heating circuits. The large full colour LCD capacitive touchscreen display and ultra-thin profile not only mean that the device looks great in any home, but also ensures the programme menu is simple to understand and easy to use. A remote sensor is also available to create a partner zone (such as en-suite) or measure the temperature from a different location to the touchscreen. Our new controls are very easy to setup and have identical electrical connections to industry standard thermostats making them a clear choice for underfloor heating applications. The OMNIE TOUCH is available from mid 2018.
An OMNIE radiant heating system can be installed in the wall or ceiling. The same principle that makes underfloor heating work can be applied to walls and ceilings. As long as there is sufficient heating area a room can be satisfactorily warmed with a ceiling or wall heating system giving the same comfortable radiant effect as underfloor heating.
An OMNIE ceiling cooling system will reduce the ceiling temperature by a few degrees, this reduces the radiant temperature within the room improving comfort conditions.. Omnie is able to provide a range of products and controls for ceiling and floor cooling systems that provide an alternative to air conditioning.

OMNIE TorFloor Batten Used on Palmerston Fort
The famous Palmerston Forts arranged along the South Coast of England were built to be solid enough to resist invasion by Napoleonic forces, but the resulting thermal mass and exposed locations make them very hard to heat. It is, however, a challenge that has been effectively met using a selection of products from our timber and solid floor range linked to a hybrid renewable energy source.
Fort Albert on the Isle of Wight was completed in 1856 to defend the Needles Passage, which gives access to Portsmouth with its strategically important naval dockyard. Still in use during World War II, it remained in military ownership until the 1950s, when it was sold and converted for domestic use. It still offered little comfort for its occupants until the current owners began a comprehensive refurbishment and improvement project. The Isle of Wight is actually on course to become the first zero carbon area of Britain and Fort Albert’s owners accordingly commissioned an advanced building services solution, which utilises an air source heat pump and solar thermal panels to harvest free energy to supply the heating and hot water. PV panels also help meet the large home’s electricity needs, but in order to achieve the most efficient transference from the heat pump to the occupied spaces, OMNIE TorFloor Batten, TorFloor Suspended and LowBoard systems were used on both ground and upper floors.
Addressing the unusual layout to the former fort with its variations in floor construction, our technical department provided comprehensive floor-plans showing the positions of the multiple heating loops and the locations of the manifolds, as well as section drawings indicating the depths of the different layers to the systems. Across the ground floor, the entrance hall, sitting room, dining-room and kitchen, OMNIE TorFloor Suspended and TorFloor Batten were used, with LowBoard employed across the concrete slab within the area of the old look-out tower. These were connected up via two manifolds: the first feeding a dozen loops containing almost 700m of pipe, while the second had a further 540m in eight loops. Up on the first floor, a further two manifolds feed the underfloor heating in five bedrooms and varying sizes of bathrooms, all using OMNIE TorFloor Suspended. Here nine loops are connected to one manifold that features just two loops with 123m of pipe, while the second feeds nine loops running for over 400m.
Although the builders had fitted insulation between the joists to help ensure the efficiency of the heat transfer to the rooms, the installer took just four days to install the 1800m of pipework and other components from our three OMNIE underfloor heating systems. The M&E specialist also connected the underfloor heating to the hybrid heat pump and solar system on the fort’s roof. Given the technical and logistical challenges of the installation within a building which requires respect as a historic monument, Fort Albert stands as a landmark installation for our high performance underfloor heating and free comprehensive system design service.
OMNIE LowBoard underfloor heating -The Last Word in Glamping
Little Coombe Farm, down on the coast of Devon, is considered to offer the most comfortable and glamorous form of camping – or Glamping – possible. Four cedar clad yurts provide every creature comfort and are set in woodland setting overlooking a beautiful river valley. Also, just in case the West Country weather isn’t warm enough, there’s now OMNIE underfloor heating to keep the glampers comfortable.
Owl Yurt and Pheasant Yurt each comprise of an 8m diameter main structure containing the master bedroom suite, complete with shower room, toilet and spacious lounge/kitchen/diner which leads onto a 4m diameter second bedroom with adjoined wet room. OMNIE LowBoard underfloor heating, which is part of the our well proven range, has been installed to deliver controllable warmth within accommodation where radiators would look as out of place as a staircase.
While the construction of the LowBoard panels helps keep overall floor depth to a minimum, our in-house design team specially created an installation layout to respect the circular floor plan of the yurts, which is able to deliver maximum efficiency from minimum pipe lengths. The seven pipe runs totalling 360 metres in length are connected back to one of our compact manifolds which measures just 615 x 415 x 100mm and is able to deliver a flow of 310 litres per hour. The system is designed to have a flow temperature of 550C and a return temperature of 450C optimizing boiler performance. The LowBoard system has been laid over a suspended timber floor construction that has insulation within the void depth, while 22mm thick wooden flooring covers the pipework that still allows good thermal transmission.
A holiday magazine offered this description of the luxury experience available at the Little Coombe Farm yurts, located near Dittisham: “Think woodland walks, hooting owls and back to nature relaxation – and combine with the most comfortable place you can think of – offering everything from dishwasher and Wi-Fi to en-suite shower and underfloor heating. So, you’ll be toasty whatever the weather is doing outside.” In the more conventional built environment, our comprehensive underfloor heating range offers solutions for installing across solid or suspended floor constructions on multiple storeys and are suitable for combining with any heat source from biomass or conventional boilers to heat pumps or district heating schemes.
