Legalett was created over 30 years ago as a simple grid of pipes installed in a slab to distribute heat from a heater located above the slab.
The first North American Legalett installation was in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, in 1988. Legalett North America was founded in 1999, as an extension of Legalett International, with it's corporate identity being introduced into Canada and the US. Legalett manufacturers and sells Air Heated and Unheated GEO-Slabs (Frost Protected Shallow Foundations), Basements and Suspended Slabs.
There are currently over 20 million square feet of Legalett Air-Heated Radiant Floor Systems installed worldwide.
The Legalett System includes a pre-engineered GEO-Slab (Frost Protected Structural Concrete Shallow Foundation Slab Design) used in Residential, Commercial and Institutional Construction.
In Canada and the US, Legalett has supplied over 1,000,000 ft² of Legalett products in over 750 buildings. This number is steadily increasing every year as more and more people are specifying Legalett as the healthy heating and foundation system of choice.
