In Floor Heating
In floor heating is a growing trend when it comes to tile floor applications as its not only comforting it’s also cost effective and energy efficient. It’s designed to warm different types of flooring not only tiles, some engineered hardwoods as well. (Contact flooring manufactures to determine if flooring is suitable)
Schluter Ditra Heat, addresses two important aspects to tile installations, warmth and cracking concerns. Ditra-Heat neutralizes the movement stresses that occur between the substrate and the tiles, therefore eliminating the major causes of tile cracking. Ditra-heat also provides waterproofing to protect the substrate from moisture and vapour management which can escape from the substrate, protecting the tiles surface.
Ditra-Heat supports the use of loose heating cables with the ease of installation of mat systems. The cables can be easily placed where heat is wanted. The use of Ditra-Heat will not add excessive height to existing floors and do not require the use of self-levelling compounds, which can reduce the installation time.
