Schlüter’s DITRA-HEAT under tile and stone heating system has been upgraded with a 70% faster warm-up time.
The unique heating system for walls and floors now features Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-TB matting. This includes an integrated thermal break which reduces heat loss into the screed and subfloor and allows up to 70% faster response time than other electric underfloor heating.
Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT features uncoupling, crack-bridging and waterproofing properties, meaning it can also be used in moisture-rich environments such as wetrooms and bathrooms.
Underwall and underfloor heating is an efficient method of heating, which can ensure effective moisture management and can prevent mould and fungus by drying out any residual moisture.
It also provides comfort and maximises space, with no radiators necessary.
To support the DITRA-HEAT, Schlüter is offering a RIBA approved CPD seminar on ‘Modular Underfloor Heating Systems for Tile and Stone Coverings.’
The CPD offers knowledge on how to specify a modular underfloor heating system to protect tile and natural stone floor coverings from cracking, splitting, tenting and debonding. It will also explore the theory behind modular screed systems.
