Keep cosy without the hassle

If you thought underfloor heating was more trouble than it's worth, think again

In association with

Underfloor heating is a great alternative to traditional heating, especially when the last rays of summer are giving way to the gloomy winter months. The thought of leaving a cosy bed and getting ready for work in a bathroom that has cold tiles can make those mornings that little bit harder to endure.

Installing underfloor heating can often be seen as difficult to include in the design and an effort that might not seem worth it.  Underfloor heating such as Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E from Schlüter-Systems provides a welcome contrast to conventional heating systems.

The uncoupling mat prevents cracked tiles and stone and is designed for quick installation that allows the attachment of heating cables, without the use of a self-levelling layer or primer. It has a low assembly height of just 5.5mm – making it perfect for any project. Add an anchoring fleece laminated on the underside and you’ve got a universal substrate for tile coverings that also serves as a moisture vapour barrier.

The heating cables easily clip into the uncoupling mat, giving great flexibility to the layout as well as the opportunity to have customised heating zones to suit individual needs, and supporting the freedom in design working around walls, furniture and only heating where needed in an efficient way, from the ground up.
