Pentair announced the acquisition of Nuheat, a manufacturer of electric floor heating systems.

By combining Nuheat’s state-of-the-art, customized products and tailored expertise with Pentair’s Thermal Building Solutions’ broad range of Raychem heat tracing systems for pipe freeze, snow melting and deicing applications, Pentair will be able to provide distributors, installers and end users with a complete and differentiated portfolio of floor heating and winter safety solutions.

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Nuheat is well-known for its innovative technology and providing customers with reliable, customized, and high-performance floor heating systems including North America’s first Wi-Fi enabled floor-heating thermostat.

With a 4,000 point distribution network across the US and Canada, the incorporation of Nuheat into Pentair’s portfolio of floor heating and freeze protection technology will enable Pentair’s Thermal Building Solutions to provide floor heating products to more customers in North America.

“As a global leader in heat-tracing systems for commercial, residential and infrastructure markets, we are continuously looking to provide the best service and expertise to our customers,” said Brad Faulconer, Vice President, Thermal Building Solutions. “This acquisition enables us to offer an extended, high performance and innovative product range to our North American customers as well as provide them with enhanced application expertise and design support.”

Having sold over 1 billion feet of Raychem self-regulating cables, Pentair’s Thermal Building Solutions provides safe and reliable heating cable products for commercial and residential building applications.
