Thanks to Schlüter-Systems, specifying and installing an underfloor heating system just got easier than ever before. Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E takes the tried, tested and trusted benefits of the market leading uncoupling mat Schlüter®-DITRA 25 - including waterproofing, drainage, vapour pressure equalisation, crack-bridging and load-bearing properties – and combines it with an innovative heating cable, to create an integrated underfloor heating solution for use under tile and natural stone flooring.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E has a superior design due to its loose heating cables, which are fixed down free of tape to the uncoupling mat, held in place as a result of its unique studded design.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E offers optimum freedom for creating concentrated heating zones as well as providing uniform spacing without the need for measuring and marking – cutting installation time by a whopping 70%.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E time saving benefits include:
• Easy press to lay cable – no tape or glue
• Loose heating cable – greater flexibility of design.
• Uniform spacing of every three studs – no measurements
• Can be tiled onto immediately – no waiting time
Water fed underfloor heating systems, such as Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM, pump water via a property’s established boiler or other heat source, while a dedicated thermostat controls the floor temperature. These water fed systems have been found to use up to two-thirds of the energy used by electrical systems making them cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly. Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is also suited to new-build or renovation projects due to the low assembly height of the product.
Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is unique as the heating pipes are laid close to the surface, enabling a more rapid response to heating cycles. The system benefits from being as much as 30 per cent more energy-efficient than radiators because it uses water at a lower temperature, therefore, the heat is given off by a larger area and is more evenly distributed within the floor of a room.
The system is easily integrated into an existing heating system to provide underfloor heating for some rooms and radiators for others, and can also be used to cool a room down in the summer.
Thanks to the versatility of Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM any type of floor covering, including wood or carpet, can be installed as long as the carpet is below 1.5 tog.
