Option 1

Description

With Coldbuster mat kits you have a simple system that installs directly below the floor surface. This allows for very quick warm-up times. You install the kit by unrolling the mesh, sticking it to the subfloor surface and then cutting the mesh to change the direction. The ultra-thin cable (1.5mm) means that you have no problem with any existing floor levels. Tilers can simply apply the adhesive to the mesh and then fit the tiles. By using thermostats temperature and scheduling control can be applied room by room maximising energy efficiency.

Option 2

Description

Coldbuster Screed Heating kits are designed to install between the slab and the floor surface. The solution is suitable for any floor surface and any room. Installation is easy and the heating cable is wound around a fixing rail that is attached to the sub floor surface. The distance between the rows of cable effects the heat output and is suitable for small as well as large heating areas. Laying cable also makes it easy to install in awkward areas around fixtures. By using thermostats for each heating area, means temperature and scheduling control can be applied to each room maximising energy efficiency.

Option 3

Description

If you are building a new home or laying a new slab and want a modern look with polished or coloured concrete flooring then you should consider in-slab heating. The Coldbuster heating cable is attached to the reinforcing mesh prior to the pouring of the concrete to provide a gentle lasting warming heat through the slab. It is not designed for quick response heating. By using thermostats temperature and scheduling control can be applied room by room maximising energy efficiency. Low-cost installation and controllable running costs make this a cost-effective solution.

Hardwood Timber Boards

In most circumstances, hardwood timber boards are nailed to batons beneath the floor surface. This means that the boards are not in contact with the subfloor surface and a void space is created between the subfloor and the timber board. This is not the way floor heating works. This gap will make the system totally inefficient. If you have to use hardwood timber boards please contact us and we can see if we can find a solution to your specific situation. The alternative is to use floating timber products.
