Thermopads 100W Electric Underfloor Heating Loose Cable Mat Kits

The Thermopads Electric Underfloor Heating loose cable heating system is suitable for a wide range of floor coverings – ceramic, stone, limestone, slate, terracotta, porcelain or marble. The system is designed for installation directly below tiles and stone flooring

The loose cable system is rated at 10w/m and is the same cable used in the under tile heating mat.

The cable comes on a reel and is loosely dispensed from the reel directly onto the floor to be heated with evenly spaced runs of cable to achieve the desired watts density (w/m2) on the floor.

The minimum spacing is 50mm and this will provide a floor watts density (loading) of 200w/m2. The simple instructions show how the spacing can be varied for different loadings and how the length of cable can fit into the area to be heated.

6mm or 10mm thick insulation board installed directly under the heating will increase performance, heat up time and save running costs.

Thermopads Electric Underfloor Heating kits contain everything you need to install them – all packed and supplied in one box complete with full colour instructions.

Please choose an electric underfloor heating mat that will cover 90% of your floor area. It is best to order slightly less than you need than have too much as the cables CAN NOT be cut or shortened.

Flooring & Insulation

Flooring & Insulation

Wooden Sub-Floors:

  • For Wooden subfloors, timber floorboards and chipboard. Make sure any loose boards are firmly fixed and reinforce the floor if necessary. This will prevent any movement in the floor that could cause tiles to crack. The floor must be level.
  • A rigid base floor is essential. Fixing reinforcements direct to joists will not provide a suitable floor finish for tiles. Reinforcement can be applied to the rigid base floor by covering the complete floor with 18mm WBP plywood (weather & boil proof plywood), or alternatively 10mm thick insulated tile backer board (construction board).
  • Reinforcements to be applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Before applying a Thermopads system rated at 200w/m2 to any wooden sub-floors, a thermal barrier must be installed, such as insulation construction board. This will add the benefit of improving the insulation properties and only a 10mm maximum thickness is required to obtain good results and the necessary thermal barrier.

Concrete Sub-Floors:

  • Before proceeding repair any imperfections in the floor and level the floor with approved building materials.
  • When practical, use XPS or tile backer insulation boards if installing the mat directly onto a concrete floor.
  • Fixing the board should be per the manufacturer’s instructions

Wooden & Concrete Floors:

  • Clean the floor surface so that it is free from dust, dirt, grease etc.
  • When it is practical, tile backer insulation construction board can be applied overall to both wooden and concrete sub floors.
  • Prime subfloors with a suitable primer to improve bonding between tile adhesives and the subfloor. A primer with a flexible admix is recommended. This is used to prepare and stabilise porous and dusting surfaces prior to tiling and to improve adhesion on difficult substrates, such as timber, concrete and terrazzo.
  • When installing insulation construction boards use tile adhesive to fix the boards to concrete floors and galvanised screws/washers on wooden subfloors.
  • NOTE: Insulation construction board is already primed, comprising a cement polymer mortar finish on both sides of the board.

Insulation:

On wood or concrete subfloors, a thermal barrier between the heating element and subfloor will increase performance and heat up time. This will add the benefit of improving the insulation properties, and only a 10mm maximum thickness is required to obtain good results and the necessary thermal barrier.

When installing a Thermopads 200w/m2 under tile system directly onto a wooden floor surface a thermal barrier is always essential.

To maximise the efficiency of the installed heat energy it is also good practice to have insulation installed below the sub-floor, but on renovation projects this is sometimes not practical due to the age of the property.

Installation

Draw a general view of the room and mark the area which will be covered with heating elements. Avoid heating under units and sanitary ware as this can cause heat blockage and it is unnecessary to heat these areas anyway.

Mark the position of the supply lead(s) – the cold lead wire(s), at floor level. In most cases this will be close to and below the thermostat position.
