heating, one size does not fit all. For this very reason, Schlüter-Systems


A Helping Hand with Underfloor Heating I


t’s an increasingly popular feature to specify, especially for tile and stone; but when it comes to underfloor and surface


offers a variety of solutions. The two system technologies available on the market today have differing benefits and features, so we’ve put together a brief overview to help in selecting the best complement to your project.


Why use electric? Electric systems are ideal for providing additional comfort in specific areas or rooms. There are a couple of reasons why electric systems are best used in this way, namely the cost of electricity and the characteristics of the heating experience. An electric system is designed to raise the temperature of the surface rather than the room, so is an enhancement to as opposed to a replacement for a primary heat source. They are generally cheap to install, quick to warm up and easy to retro-fit.


HEAT-E Schlüter®


Specify this: Schlüter® -DITRA- -DITRA-HEAT-E is the perfect


integrated electric solution for the heating and protection of tile and stone coverings. The uncoupling matting prevents cracks in the finished installation and eliminates the need for self-levelling, and its unique studded design means that the cable is easily pressed into place with no need for tape, glue or measurement. The system can be specified with standard


DITRA-HEAT or with DITRA-HEAT-DUO matting, the latter of which offers an integrated thermal break and impact sound reduction of up to 13dB.


Why use hydronic? Hydronic (or ‘wet’) systems are ideal for large scale coverage and ‘whole-house’ scenarios. Designed to heat the air within a room as well as the surface covering, they are a primary heat source and can therefore replace radia- tors, connecting directly to a boiler. Although installation is more expensive than with an electric system, running costs are cheaper. Hydronic systems can be powered by a number of different fuel sources, including ground source heat pumps, and as well as warming a space can also be used for gentle passive cooling.


BEKOTEC-THERM Schlüter®


Specify this: Schlüter® - -BEKOTEC-THERM is the patented


hydronic underfloor heating solution with an ultra-low construction height. A required screed height of just 8mm above the studs of the panels results in quicker warm-up times as well as considerable material and weight savings in comparison to other wet systems. A building can also be put into use more rapidly as there is no need to wait weeks for the screed to cure before tiles are installed. BEKOTEC-THERM can be configured to


work with Building Management Systems (BMS) and a number of variants suitable for retrofitting are available. Schlüter-Systems can also provide a full design service for all BEKOTEC-THERM installations. All of Schlüter’s products are designed


to work together – you can use DITRA- HEAT-E in partnership with BEKOTEC- THERM, to further elevate the underfloor heating experience.
