Under Floor Heating - DIY Kits
DIY Floor Heating kits are a great option if you are rennovating a bathroom or a room which is going to be tiled or screeded. This option will save you the installation costs and using our detailed instructions you will have this installed in no time.
We have two different types of DIY under floor heating kits available.
Under Tile Floor Heating Kits
Our under tile floor heating kit is perfect for putting floor heating under tiles, where the floor cannot be screeded. The cable mat is installed on the base surface and is then covered with the tile adhesive and tiles. The thin 3mm cables means that the tiler only has to use a little bit of extra adhesive. The mats are 500mm wide and are easily installed by cutting the matting (NOT THE CABLE) and snaking the mat backwards and forwards filling in the area to be heated.
In-Screed Floor Heating Kits
Our Australian first product of in-screed cable pre attached to a mat in a similar fashion to the Under Tile Kit, provides an easy way of laying the floor heating cable in-screed. This unique product removes a lot of the hassle of installing in-screed heating cable as it is pre-spaced on the mat.
Planning a DIY Installation
When calculating the size of the mat you require for your project, you need to calculate ONLY THE FREE FLOOR SPACE in the room you are heating. For example in a bathroom you would generally exclude the toilet, bath, shower and vanity unit. Also when planning your installation bear in mind that the cable mat is 500mm wide (1000mm for larger in-screed mats) so when planning how you will layout the mat, work in 500mm strips.
