What project is the heated floor mat system designed for?
The Mat System is ideal for installations within regularly shaped areas, where the 20″ or 3′ wide mats can be quickly rolled out across the floor in parallel runs.
If you intend on using vinyl, carpet, timber, tiles or any other underfloor heating compatible floor finish, the system can (and should, in some cases like for carpet) be embedded within a self-leveling compound to provide a flat and level floor surface to lay over.
Alternatively, the Foil Heater System can be used under laminate, engineered wood, or carpet and offers a completely dry construction that does not require a leveling compound. Or, if the area is irregularly shaped (not a square or rectangular form), or has multiple permanent fixtures in it (like a bathroom, for instance, with toilets, baths, sinks and more), Warmup’s DCM-PRO cable with fixing strips is the more suitable solution.
compatible with all flooring types
The Mat system can be used with all floor types compatible with underfloor heating whether you are choosing laminate flooring, vinyl, carpet, tiles or other. The compatibility with all floor coverings and the fact that mat does not visibly raise your floor height makes it the ideal system for renovation projects – just remember to double check with your flooring supplier that the floor type you want to go for is compatible with the Mat System.
The Heating Mat system consists of a thin 1/8″ wire evenly spaced and taped to a fiberglass mesh with pressure-sensitive adhesive. The pressure-sensitive adhesive securely binds the mats to the floor, keeping them flat and ensuring the application of tile adhesive is snag-free whilst allowing the mats to be easily repositioned when necessary.
The mats can be rolled out quickly across the floors reducing installation time by 35% – for a truly fast and secure method of electric underfloor heating installation. The ultra-thin heating cable is double insulated with an advanced fluoropolymer core making it incredibly durable, tough, and easy to lay flooring over.
In the process of installing the Heating Mat system, flexible tile adhesive and self-leveling compound may be required.
The Heating Mat system is UL Approved, meeting the highest safety standards for ultimate peace of mind.
