Electronic Floor Heating
Warmup’s wafer thin underlaminate heater fits between the floor and underlay. If it wasn’t for the lovely warm feeling in the room, you would never know it had been fitted.
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.
Our underlaminate heaters are foil based, ensuring even heat distribution. Thanks to the technology, they are 100% waterproof, further acting as an earth shield over the internal core wire. Built with spring like flexibility, the core wire is a durable cushion that can withstand heavy furniture, snooker tables, stiletto heels and other household items, provided installation is done correctly.
The underlaminate heating pads are designed to never overheat and can be left on continuously. However due to the SAWALFA regulations for heating laminates, a floor sensor is to be installed under the pad, between the heating wires. The sensor works in conjunction with an intelligent Warmup thermostat, which ensures that the temperature never exceeds 27°C under the laminate. To ensure the laminate is heated evenly, at least 90% of the floor space must be covered with heating pads.
Laminate heating pads are suitable for use under most modern laminate locking systems, however glued timber floors require a different type of Warmup heating solution.
•Foil Heating Pad
Warmup’s heating pads are a result of more than three decades of advanced research and development. It is important to cover at least 90% of the floor space with heating pads, to ensure the laminate is heated evenly.
•Underlay and Damp Proof Membrane
A good quality underlay is essential to protect the heating pad and reduce downward heat loss. A minimum of 200 micron damp proof membrane should be used, or Combilay Underlay.
To ensure you enjoy the full lifespan of the heating system, it is vital that the subfloor is perfectly smooth and level, and free of stones and grit.
