Warmup’s custom-laid heating elements allow full coverage of the floor, evenly heating the vinyl tiles and gently radiating warmth into the room.
As the heating solution becomes part of the floor, with no hot or moving parts, you can still enjoy an uncluttered home, as well as a maintenance-free heating system. Best of all, this clean, silent and odour-free heating solution will not dry out the air or aggravate allergies.
The cable used beneath vinyls is designed never to overheat and can be left on continuously. However the vinyl flooring manufacturers specify that the floor temperature may not exceed 27’C. A floor sensor then must be used in conjunction with an intelligent Warmup thermostat to control the heating system accordingly. To ensure the vinyls are heated evenly, at least 90% of the floor space must be covered with the heating system.
Heating can be installed beneath most clip-vinyl floor systems, however glued vinyls require a different type of Warmup heating solution.
A thin, self-levelling screed is poured over the heating system, to bond it to the subfloor and protect the heating cables. The screed must be smooth and level to provide a suitable surface for the vinyls.
A fibreglass resin coated mesh is laid over the heating elements to protect the cable and strengthen the screed.
• Heating Cables
Our heating cables are factory tested at 5000 volts, to ensure safety and longevity. The Teflon coated cables are extremely thin, minimizing the overall change in your floor height.
The subfloor should be smooth, level and strong, to ensure a good bond between the screeds.
