We provide a 2.5mm thick electrical element with a bag of Davco Ultrabond part A & B, which are mixed together to form a paste like consistency. This is then applied like a thin levelling compound over the element to cover the wire. This is then left to cure for 24 hours before the tiler can tile over the top.
Brief Installation Process
After the heating element is adhered to the sub floor a self levelling screed is then applied. This levelling compound is laid over the electrical element so there is a medium between the heating element & the flooring. In 99% of situations, the levelling compound in applied which can vary between 5-10mm.
It is extremely important to install the floor sensor in the heated area as the thermostat needs to be set to measure and regulate the floor temperature. The maximum heat as specified by the manufacturer is normally 27 degrees celsius. The thermostat will not regulate and adjust from the floor element itself to your specified programmed temperature if the floor sensor is not installed in the heated floor area. Please call us if this is not done, as we can help you switch the thermostat over to an air sensor instead.
