From our sister site Builder Magazine, Jennifer Goodman looks at Schulter’s new DITRA-hEAT-TB electric floor warming system. The product is intended to solve one of the biggest problems that remodelers and homebuilders face as they install floor-warming systems onto concrete by allowing them “complete flexibility” for installing cables.
Schluter's new DITRA-HEAT-TB electric floor warming system has an integrated thermal break to overcome this challenge. The thin thermal break on the underside of the membrane allows the system to warm tiled floors up to 70% faster over concrete substrates, by directing heat to the tile, not to the subfloor, says the firm. The all-in-one system means faster and simpler installation as the membrane, heating cables, and thermal break are all combined in a single layer.
