Under-floor heating at the cheshire design centre

Our Under-floor heating products cover indoor heating, outdoor de-icing and snow-melting, based on our revolutionary and unique Amorphous Metal Ribbon Heating Technology. Highly efficient heating at low cost, it is a totally safe, environmentally friendly system which is easily installed and maintained.

The advanced Living Heat™ underfloor electrical heating system provides a warm, comfortable, luxurious home environment. For use in every room: bathroom, kitchen, living room, utility room, basement, den, or bedroom, it can be installed under any flooring: tile, stone, wood, laminate or carpet.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating

Advantages of Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating for Wrap-Around Warmth™

Ideal for: • Bathrooms • Kitchens • Dens • Basements • Lounge • Bedrooms

The under-floor Heating system, based on a unique and patented Amorphous Metal Ribbon heating technology, has significant advantages over any other type of under floor heating system:

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating can be installed directly under any type of floor covering

The heating mats are constructed from wide metallic ribbons that cover at least 25% of the floor area (compared to only 1% to 2% with heating wires). This large heat transfer area allows the heating element to operate at very low temperatures of about 32 degrees (compared to the typical temperature range of more than 60 degrees at the core of a common heating wire), and still generate the required heat to the surrounding area. The low working temperature allows direct installation of ceramic tile, timber, parquet or carpet above the heating mats with no danger of damaging the colour, texture or coating of these delicate floor coverings.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating reaches working temperatures faster than other systems

The large heat transfer area of the heating ribbons and the short distance between the heating element and the floor covering ensure that the floor temperature reaches the desired level faster than wire systems buried deeper in the floor.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating generates more consistent heat

The heating mats are constructed from wide metallic ribbons that cover at least 25% of the floor area (compared to only 1% to 2% with heating wires). This high coverage creates extremely consistent heating over the top of the floor covering.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating is less costly and more economical to operate

Because the heating mats reach the desired working temperature faster, activating the system to reach a desired temperature can be started later than a comparable wire-based system, resulting in lower operating costs. The heating ribbons transfer all the electrical energy into heat and as the ribbon thickness is minimal (1/1000th inch), heat is not stored in the heating element itself; all heat is distributed into the surrounding area –resulting in superior economical operating costs.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating has a low profile and superior flexibility

The heating ribbon is only 1/1000th inch thick. The total mat thickness, including the double insulation, is less than 1/10th inch therefore perfectly suited not only for installation in new buildings, but also for renovation, refurbishment and retrofitting projects. State-of-the-art technology means virtually no change to the elevation of the floor during renovations.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating is extremely simple and easy to install

Just lay the heating mats on the sub-floor, connect the electrical cables and you are ready to cover the floor with any type of covering (see installation manual) (LSB: should be a link to the Installation Manual.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating is perfectly safe from electrical shock hazards and electromagnetic radiation

Amorphous metal ribbon under-floor heating mats are designed and manufactured to the highest safety standards. The heating mats meet class 2 appliance requirements; are constructed with double insulation and have successfully passed the applicable tests of IEC safety standards: IEC 60335-1 (Household and similar electrical appliances – safety, general requirements) and IEC 60335-2-96 (particular requirements for flexible sheet heating elements for room heating). The heating mats are also certified and listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) based on UL 1693 (Electric Radiant Heating) standard, file E214067. As such the products proudly carry the CE mark, have a CB certification, the Nemko N mark and the UL mark. The heating mats have been tested and proved to have negligible electromagnetic radiation, far below the minimum requirements of the applicable standards. When installed according to the installation instructions and manual, the products are of the highest quality and perfectly safe.

Amorphous Metal Ribbon Under-floor Heating is reliable and durable

Amorphous metal under floor heating system will last for many, many years, with minimal maintenance, giving trouble-free, comfortable and safe Wrap-Around Warmth™ way into the future, at low cost.
