Advice - Pex Tubing

I am researching a boiler/water heater combo that heats water for shower sink etc and also heats and pumps water through a radiant floor heating system. I would like to avoid baseboard units in the basement (existing slab-unfinished basement). Has anyone heard of laying down treated sleepers on the slab,running the PEX tubing in the bays and installing plywood over that? Is there a way to heat the basement with this radiant system of tubing and fins without the exposed fixtures?
I found the supplies on and they have a really good deal. I just wanted to make sure that this was the best solution to my problem. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I've seen exactly this type of setup in literature from radiant supply houses. Do some online searches under "radiant heat" and you'll find layouts and specs.
