Schlüter® provides house warming for new Essex homes

Schlüter® has recently provided its electric underfloor heating system for 60 new houses, as part of a National Autistic Society project.

The Anderson Foundation and NAS recently identified a drastic shortfall in the number of school places for autistic youngsters in the Epping Forest District Council area. Consequently, they had the idea to build the school without using public funds. A carefully considered gated community of three, four and five-bed luxury houses – Chigwell Grove – was planned to enable its construction.

Electric underfloor heating system DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO was installed across the bathrooms and ensuites of the houses in the Chigwell Grove development. Three different sized kits were used according to the size of the rooms, minimising any waste product.

Paul Clough, owner of tiling contractor PJ Ceramics, comments on the usability of the system: “As a company we have recently switched completely to membrane-based systems – they’re far more versatile as you can route the cable around features rather than heating entire floors at additional expense”.

DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO is an all-in-one solution for waterproofing and heating floors, that ensures a crack-free finish.

The system features a studded uncoupling membrane into which heating cables are clipped and securely held in place, ensuring an even and consistent heating experience. The fact that an uncoupling membrane is integrated into the DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO system offers a number of additional advantages, the chief amongst them being reductions in height build-up and installation time in comparison to mesh-based systems, which require an uncoupling membrane to be installed as an additional layer in the flooring assembly.

The DITRA-HEAT-DUO membrane also features a 2.5mm fleece layer that reduces heat loss to the substrate, accelerating the warm-up process by up to 70% in comparison to conventional underfloor heating systems. This layer also provides impact sound reduction of up to 13dB (which translates to a reduction of 50% by reckoning of the human ear).
