New Electric Underfloor Heating Mat that revolutionises the installation of Underfloor Heaters
The new innovation from Warmup promises a rapid solution for the installation of an electric underfloor heating system. The heated decoupling system from Warmup provides handy, easy and quick installation for installers, but also some unique features for the homeowners’ piece of mind for years to come.
The new heated decoupling system is called DCM-PRO. The convenience of installing the system derives from the following features. The DCM-PRO Mat has a self-adhesive backing that can be attached straight to the subfloor, avoiding the need for mixing additional tile adhesive to affix the mat to the subfloor. Therefore you no longer have to waste time waiting for the base layer of tile adhesive to dry before installing the cable. This in turn will save you time and money during the installation process.
The DCM-PRO mat has pre-spaced channels on the mat that make it very easy and quick to space and lay the cable evenly, saving you time when measuring and calculating the correct spacing to output ratio for your project. The pre-spacing ensures accurate spacing throughout the installation, providing a consistent output of 150W/m2. The DCM-PRO Cable has unique qualities of flexibility and durability that provide maximum reliability during installation.
The DCM-PRO system from Warmup comprises of a self-adhesive castellated membrane and a heating cable that can easily be covered with a range of different floor types. Since the self-adhesive layer of the DCM-PRO Mat also acts as a self-healing decoupling layer, it eliminates the need for additional fixings and other time-consuming installation processes.
Self-levelling compound can be poured directly onto the system. A self-levelling compound allows the system to heat effectively and protect the floor covering material such as tiles, laminate, engineered wood, vinyl, and carpet.
Once the DCM-PRO system is installed, it is easy to tile over or cover with a different floor finish. If self-levelling compound is not used, tile adhesive can be directly applied onto the system and tiles laid on top, with no risk of any damage to the heater. The unique design of the system ensures that the cable stays safe during the installation. Therefore, risk of mechanical damage to the cable due to stepping on the system with heavy boots is minimised.
The most striking benefit of the system for a homeowner is the self-healing feature of the DCM-PRO mat that protects the floor covering from cracks or gaps caused by the seasonal changes to the sub floor. The patent pending self-healing decoupling layer of the DCM-PRO mat contracts and expands to deal with seasonal changes preventing damage to floor coverings. Unlike traditional fabric-based decoupling layers which tear upon movement, the DCM-PRO expands and contracts for durable, long-term protection. Rated as High Performance, DCM-PRO is proven to protect tiled floors from cracking (ANSI 118.12:5.4).
The DCM-PRO cable is offered with a Lifetime Warranty and SafetyNet™ Installation Guarantee when installed with the DCM-PRO Mat. For more information, please click here.
