The capillary tube mats and insulation are placed on a suspended drywall ceiling. On the visible side, there is a closed, jointless ceiling for the removal or supply of sensitive heat loads. The water circulates noiselessly in the capillary tube mats and regulates the room temperature to a large extent via radiation, partly also by convection.
Capillary tube mat
The Clina capillary tube mat ORIMAT S 10 is recommended for this design.
Length & width
The capillary tube mats are custom-made in terms of length and width. At the construction site, the mat distributor pipes are connected to one another by heating element socket welding. This is a secure,
The capillary tube mats, connected to a hydraulic circuit, are connected to the supply and return lines, which are located in the void of the suspended ceiling, by heating element socket welding. Alternatively, the connection can be made using a proven push-lock system with flexible hoses.
The ceiling void can of course be used for further installations.
The capillary tube mats are fixed between the profiles of a suspended drywall ceiling with retaining brackets or retaining clips.
Any type of drywall panels can be used - whether unperforated or perforated ceiling. The installation height, ceiling design and heating and cooling capacities vary accordingly.
Lamps & Ventilation
Larger openings must be taken into account in the planning phase.
Up to approx. 100 mm, openings can also be made during the construction phase by simply pulling the capillary tubes apart.
The system can be regulated room-by-room.
Fields of application
Suitable for all types of buildings, such as office buildings, residential buildings, hotels, etc., whether new construction or renovation.

The mat distributor pipes of the capillary tube mats are connected to each other by heating element socket welding.
The capillary tube mats, connected to a hydraulic circuit, are connected to the supply and return lines by heating element socket welding, which are located in the void of the suspended ceiling. Alternatively, the connection can be made using a proven push-lock system with flexible hoses.
Mat distributor pipes and supply lines are located in the hollow space of the suspended ceiling.
To close the ceiling, the capillary tube mats are rolled out step by step, insulation boards are placed on top and drywall panels are screwed on from below.
recommended capillary tube mat
The ORIMAT S 10 consists of 2 round mat distributor pipes (20 x 2,0 mm) and capillary tubes (3,4 x 0,55 mm).
The constant distance between the capillary tubes (centre-to-centre distance) is 10 mm and is guaranteed by the omega ribbons.
Cooling and heating with one system
In most buildings, the heat requirement to be covered is so low due to the well-insulated building envelope, that capillary tube mats invisibly integrated into the ceiling not only provide excellent cooling in the summer, but can also be used to heat very comfortably and energy-eﬃcient in the cold season.
The acoustic properties of the perforated drywall panels are retained in accordance with the manufacturer‘s specifications.
Good price/performance ratio
An existing or already planned drywall ceiling can be activated without additional expenses.
Low installation height
To install Clina capillary tube mats and the supply lines, the ceiling only has to be suspended approx. 10 cm.
Simple, fast and clean mounting, with the works being decoupled, which allows for an unproblematic contractual and temporal separation of the sub-works of heating/cooling and dry construction. The capillary tube mats can be connected very easily to the supply line in the ceiling void.
Individual room control
The temperature can be regulated room-by-room.
