Customers can now choose between Warmup underfloor
heating loose cable system and this professional
dual core heat mat, assured of the quality and
reliability delivered by the UK leading manufacturer
in electric underfloor heating.
difference, when compared to the traditional loose
wire underfloor heating , is that it is more suited for larger, regular
shaped areas either in a new building or renovation
Whereas one loose wire cable covers a maximum
area of 6.9 sqm, ProFormat can cover areas up
to 13sqm with a single mat. For larger installations,
ProFormat can be quicker as the wires are pre-spaced
and the underfloor heating mat just needs to be
rolled out. The thinner Warmup loose wire heaters
remain the system of choice for smaller or irregular
shaped rooms such as bathrooms.
Both systems are thin (less than 3mm), so that
they do not raise floor levels. ProFormat can
be installed onto concrete or wooden subfloors
and under any natural stone or ceramic floor.
Heating Mat - Measuring and
Divide the floor into a series of rectangles.
From these measurements you can calculate
how many mats you’ll need and what sizes.
Exclude permanent or static fixtures from
to the power supply
If the floor is screed over concrete, it is
advisable to lay insulation boards to minimise
heat loss and ensure quicker warm up times.
Laying the ProFormat underfloor heating matting
Lay the first run, at the end of the run cut
the mat leaving the cable intact, turn the
mat through 90º or 180º and continue
laying. When the area is covered, adjust
the mat until the loops are equal distance
apart. Now attach the mat to the sub
floor using the special tape supplied.
You will need to install an RCD fused spur which
powers the thermostatic controller/programmer
and the ProFormat element network. Lay the temperature
probe from the timer-thermostat onto the floor
equidistant between two of the cable loops and
attach it to the floor surface. Now take
the unheated power supply cable from the end
of the ProFormat which should be positioned
near the thermostat. Once all the connections
has been made let it run for 10 test minutes.
Completing the job
Either lay a thin, self-levelling screed over
the mat and leave it to go off before laying
tiles or trowel flexible tile adhesive directly
over the mat and lay the floor tiles.
Once the grouting is complete let the tile adhesive
cure before switching on the system.
