What project is an Underfloor Heating Mat designed for?
The StickyMat System is ideal for installations within regularly shaped areas, where the 0.5m wide mats can be quickly rolled out across the floor in parallel runs.
If you intend on using vinyl, carpet, timber, tiles or any other underfloor heating compatible floor finish, the system can (and should, in some cases like for carpet) be embedded within a self-levelling compound to provide a flat and level floor surface to lay over.
Alternatively, the Foil Heater System offers a completely dry construction that does not require a leveling compound (unless it is to be used underneath a tiled floor finish). Or, if the area is irregularly shaped (not a square or rectangular form), or has multiple permanent fixtures in it (like a bathroom, for instance, with toilets, baths, sinks and more), Warmup’s Loose Wire System is the more suitable solution.
Compatible With All Floor Coverings
The StickyMat system can be used with all floor types compatible with underfloor heating whether you are choosing laminate flooring, vinyl, carpet, tiles or other. The compatibility with all floor coverings and the fact that StickyMat does not visibly raise your floor height makes it the ideal system for refurbishment projects – just remember to double check with your flooring supplier that the floor type you want to go for is compatible with the StickyMat System.
How does StickyMat work?
StickyMat comes in two different power variants; 150W/m2 and 200W/m2, so it is ideal for use as a primary heat source and in rooms with high heat-loss such as conservatories.
150W/ m2 – power variant can provide primary heating in well-insulated areas. Insulation boards retain heat in the room for longer. More importantly, they prevent downward heat-loss. The 150W/ m2 StickyMat can be laid on both timber and concrete subfloors.
200W/ m2 – power variant is best suited for rooms or areas with a high heat-loss such as conservatories. Be sure to carry out a heat-loss calculation to assess the heating requirements of the room. This is especially the case if you are considering using an underfloor heating system as a primary heat-source under tiles in a high heat-loss area.
The StickyMat system consists of a thin 1.8mm wire evenly spaced and taped to a glass fibre mesh with pressure sensitive adhesive. The pressure sensitive adhesive securely binds the mats to the floor, keeping them flat and ensuring the application of tile adhesive is snag free whilst allowing the mats to be easily repositioned when necessary.
The mats can be rolled out quickly across the floors reducing installation time by 35% – for a truly fast and secure method of electric underfloor heating installation. The ultra-thin heating cable is double insulated with an advanced fluoropolymer core making it incredibly durable, tough and easy to lay flooring over.
In the process of installing the StickyMat system, flexible tile adhesive and self-leveling compound may be required. Instarmac UltraTile flexible tile adhesives and leveling compounds are amongst the best in the market. The StickyMat system is BEAB Approved and CE marked, meeting the highest safety standards for ultimate peace of mind.
