        Comments about 1/2" PEX Rail, 6.5 ft.:

        The project is to build the Garage-ma-hal, a 2 level studio garage with in slab heat. Both levels incorporate in slab hydronic heat. The floor of the upper level of the garage is prestressed concrete planks. Peel and stick waterproofing membrane was applied over the prestressed. I had to fasten the tubing to this peel and stick membrane without putting holes in it. The PEX rails worked great. I used double sided indoor/outdoor carpet tape along the bottom of the rail and stuck it directly to the peel and stick membrane. It rained before the concrete was poured but the rails held fast. Laying out the tubing circuits went quickly and the only slow down was accommodating the varying radius of the loops on the ends. I would definitely use them again.

                      Q:

                      Do you need to put insulation on top of the 1st. slab before putting down the rails to hold the tubing?

                        A:

                        Yes, it is best if you put down a thin radiant insulation (about 3/8 inch
                        thick, like bubble plastic with an aluminum foil reflective coating).
                        Otherwise, the floor or slab beneath will absorb all of the heat. On top
                        of the insulation, you should put something like 1 inch metal mesh to
                        support the concrete. I'd recommend an 8 inch spacing between tubing, as I
                        can feel a cold spot between the 12 inch spacing I have.

                        Depends on your specific application. Insulation is always a good idea if space and loads allow

                        A:

                        Insulation depends on many factors.  If the project is residential with a thin overpour and slab on grade construction I prefer to use at least 1" high density foamboard on top of an existing slab.  The overpour should have fiber in it for strength or if surfacing it with tile use a membrane between the finish floor surface and the tile to prevent telescoping of any floor cracks through the tile surface.
                        On the other hand if the floor is intended to support heavy equipment and high loads such as equipment jacks etc. you need all the support possible and it is likely best that the clip rails be attached directly to the old concrete surface.  We will use either Ram-set anchors with washers to prevent the "sets" from tearing through the plastic clip rails or drill and attach them with tap-con type anchors.  The method all depends on how neat the work needs to be and what works best for the application.  
                        If an equipment building were new construction the insulation board would be on top of the compacted gravel base and the slab could have mesh or re-bar for extra strength.  For ease of installation we like to use a product called Crete-heat insulated panels into which we walk our tubes to create the floor heat pattern.  Wire mesh or fiber filled concrete can go on top of the tube and panels and then provides plenty of strength for heavy point loads.  As for the concrete it is best if you can specify a mix with a 5" slump for the best water to cement ration and highest strength.  A mix which settles more than 5 inches when the slump cone is removed has more water and will be subject to shrinkage cracking as it dries and will have overall lower strength. Not everyone is aware of this relationship between water content and slump but the concrete guys are very familiar and when possible they will unfortunately try to add more water to make the concrete
                        more flowable and workable for a longer period of time.  A wet mix makes their job easier but the end result is a floor with shrinkage cracks and lower strength.  
                        I suspect you will be monitoring the pour so request you witness the slump test with each truck they pour and make certain that they let the plant operator know you are requesting a 5" slump test.  Concrete is a science and hot weather will cause it to set more quickly.  Some plants will add Ice to the mix to help cool the concrete and extend its working time.  Perhaps this is too much information but thought it might be of some benefit if this is a critical pour for a high strength farm maintenance building.

                        Each PEX rail should be mounted 18"-24" apart.
