system description

Design
Clina OPTIPANEL 15 is a prefabricated gypsum board panel with an integrated capillary tube mat. The OPTIPANEL 15 are screwed onto a wooden or metal stud frame. On the visible side there is a high-quality gypsum board wall 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 via convection.

Gypsum board panel & Capillary tube mat
The OPTIPANEL 15 consists of a 12,5 mm unperforated gypsum board panel and the Clina capillary tube mat OPTIMAT GB 15.

Length & width
Clina manufactures the OPTIPANEL 15 in the dimensions 2.000 x 625 mm or 2.000 x 1.250 mm (standard). Other, project-specific dimensions can also be delivered.

The panel thickness is 12,5 mm.

Hydraulic connection
The connections between the OPTIPANEL 15 and the connection to the supply and return lines are made on site using a proven push-lock system with flexible hoses. Pipes and sub-distributors are housed in the wall cavity. 

Of course, the wall cavity can be used for other installations.
 

Mounting
The prefabricated OPTIPANEL 15 are screwed onto the stud frame.

The screws are screwed in through holes drilled in the factory.

Processing
According to the common rules of drywall. Processing of inactive areas with 12,5 mm standard gypsum board panels.

Sockets, Switches & Cables
Openings have to be taken into account in the planning phase.

Regulation
The system can be regulated room-by-room.

Fields of application
Suitable for the modern interior design of rooms, such as office buildings or public buildings, whether new construction or renovation.

prefabricated product

In an unperforated 12,5 mm gypsum board panel, parallel slots are milled on the back at a distance of
15 mm. 

The capillaries of the OPTIMAT GB 15 capillary tube mat, consisting of a round mat distributor pipe (20 x 2,0 mm) and capillary tubes (4,3 x 0,8 mm), are inserted into these slots.

The distance between the capillary tubes (centre-to-centre distance) is 15 mm. 

The OPTIPANEL 15 is covered with a full-surface cover paper on the back.

advantages

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 integrated invisibly in the gypsum board wall not only provide excellent and silent cooling in summer, but can also be used to heat very comfortably and energy-efficient in the cold season.

High degree of prefabrication
Factory prefabrication ensures quality, function and thermal performance.

Easy retrofitting
Can be screwed onto an existing stud frame. The hydraulic connection is made in the wall cavity. 

Quick and easy installation
The hydraulic connection is made using a proven push-lock system.

This design can be installed completely in the drywall work, which ensures a smooth process on the construction site.

Individual room control
The system can be regulated room-by-room.
