The membrane is not compatible with wood or soft floor coverings.
* With the exception of natural hardwood, cork and any material exceeding insulation greater than R-1 (RSI 0.18).
The precise calculation of the surface to be heated is essential to obtain uniform heating of the floor. Don’t let anyone tell you that the heat is going to expand … Contrary to popular belief, where there is no heating cable, there is no heat.
The uniformity of the heating cable spacing will have an impact on the uniformity of the generated heat, and may be felt differently depending on the sensitivity of your bare feet.
The surface to be heated can be determined in just a few easy steps.
First, keep in mind that the inch measurement is a must for its accuracy.
Measure the total surface area of the room.
Objects touching the ground are measured and subtracted from the total surface area.
That’s it! You now know the area to be heated. The cable or mat coverage you will choose cannot exceed that area.
There will necessarily be places that will not be heated. You can dispose of it judiciously outside normal traffic areas; for example, near the walls, behind a door, on each side of a fixed piece of furniture, etc. Something is challenging you? Contact Customer Service; we can advise you.
Note that for the membrane, the area to be calculated is identical to the area to be tiled.
NOTE : The shower must have its own cable.
