Electric Heating Mats
Electric underfloor heating mats are ideal for renovation projects, offering a low-profile heating solution and rapid installation times. All Warmup’s electric floor heaters use BEAB, VDE or FIMKO -approved, ultra-thin heating elements to quickly yet gently heat the floor surface. There are two key Warmup electric floor heating mats; the StickyMat and Foil Heater.
The Warmup StickyMat heating mat is a super thin electric underfloor heating system that does not raise floor levels, taking the form of pre-spaced cables attached to a sticky mesh backing. Our StickyMat 3D System has been specifically developed to bring radiant warmth to bathroom walls. The StickyMat heating mat comes in two different outputs: 150W/m2 and 200W/m2. The higher output is designed specifically for high heat loss areas, such as conservatories.
Warmup’s Foil Heater is designed for installation under wood and laminate flooring or under soft and resilient floor coverings such as carpet, vinyl, and other floating floor finishes. The Foil Heater system is especially suited for large and regular shaped areas. The Foil Heater’s aluminum foil spreads the heat effectively and therefore the Foil Heater’s heat output of 140W/m² is adequate for most heating needs.
Electric Heating Cables
Heating cables provide a flexible electric underfloor heating solution for irregular-shaped rooms or rooms featuring many fixed objects.
Warmup heating cables and Loose Wire systems come without a membrane and are specifically designed for areas where you have many fittings to work around or irregularly shaped rooms when installing underfloor heating.
Loose Wire System
The Loose Wire System (DWSWire System) is an incredibly flexible and durable cable that can easily be maneuvered around fixings. Loose Wire comes in a minimum heat output of 150W/m² but it’s variable depending on the spacing. The Loose Wire system can be bought as an electric underfloor heating kit that contains all the essential elements for it’s installation; the heating cable, primer, tape, roller and the installation manual.
Inscreed Cable System
The Warmup Inscreed Cable is 6mm thick and is an ideal solution for heating screeded floors of any size. One of the most recommended screedings in the market to use are from Instarmac UltraFloor. Once installed, the underfloor heated screed can be covered with any flooring.
DCM-PRO Heated Decoupling System
The DCM-PRO System is the newest innovation from Warmup, in which the heating cable is inserted and embedded amongst the castellation’s of the mat; allowing for fast installation and a more controlled heat output. The DCM-PRO also offers great protection of your floor covering, specifically preventing tiles from cracking from seasonal temperature changes in the subfloor. This system’s heat output varies depending on how you choose to space the heating cable.
