The Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT has become popular with specifiers, installers and homeowners as an all-in-one integrated solution for use under tiles and natural stone flooring, most recently being used at the historic Lanesborough Hotel in Hyde Park Corner
The product has been developed to provide time saving benefits to both installation and heat reaction time and its overall assembly uses less material therefore resulting in an overall lower height, making it versatile enough for almost any application.
The system also features CE marked waterproofing, uncoupling, crack bridging, vapour pressure equalisation and load distribution; ensuring tile and stone coverings stay crack-free.
It also features a unique studded uncoupling membrane and loose cabling to provide variation in size and layout in addition to extensive time saving benefits.
The system now includes a touchscreen digital thermostat, launched this year, which allows the end user greater control over individual room temperatures.
The Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E-R digital thermostat includes full touchscreen technology and provides two floor sensors, with the option of air temperature, to ensure climate control is balanced at all times.
The thermostat measures at 5.5 x 5.5cm meaning it can easily blend in to its environment.
Schlüter-Systems will also now offer a discrete, safer and more practical alternative to traditional tower rails and radiators, with its Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E-WS electric underwall heating.
The system is available in complete box sets and is suitable for use under tile or stone, designed and balanced for easy and discrete installation.
The underwall heating system uses low surface temperature technology to output at 136 or 200w per square metre, ensuring comfortable and safe heating with the added benefit of CE marked waterproofing, uncoupling and crack bridging within a single 5.5mm layer.
This can be combined with underfloor heating to ensure greater heating outputs for large areas, in addition to providing clean, open plan living spaces. In addition, the matting and heating cable can be installed within a shower wall area to allow for increased comfort and faster drying times.
For smaller rooms, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT can act as the primary heating source, which allows users to maximise the limited space available.
Schlüter-Systems provide full support and training to those that specify, install and use its products.
Schlüter’s RIBA-accredited CPD seminar, ‘Modular Underfloor Heating Systems for Tile and Stone Coverings’, explains how the systems help to protect ceramic tile and natural stone floor coverings from cracking, splitting, tenting and debonding.
The seminar also explores the theory behind modular screed systems and water fed and electric underfloor heating.
The 45-minute seminar is fun from any business premises as requested and includes a 15-minute Q&A session at the end.
