Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO Matting is polyethylene membrane with a cut-back stud structure and a special sound-deadening/thermal barrier fleece laminated on the underside. It is a universal substrate for tile coverings, which serves as an uncoupling, crack bridging, waterproofing, vapour pressure equalization layer and is designed to be used as a carrying membrane for the Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Heating Cable.
Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO Matting is available in either 10 metre rolls (10m length x 1m width) or 0.8m² mats (0.8m x 1m).
Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO Matting can be used on both walls and floors. The Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Heating Cable snaps easily into place in the matting without the need for fasteners or clips. The heating cable can be installed wherever it is necessary in the matting, meaning you can put heating cables only under the areas that you want to heat – creating a cost efficient and effective under tile heating installation.
Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO Matting is non-rotting, waterproof, elastic and crack-bridging. The material is highly resistant to solutions containing salts, acids and alkalis, as well as many organic solvents, alcohols and oils. The suitability of the material must be verified based on the specific chemical stresses, including the anticipated concentration, temperature and length of exposure. The water vapour diffusion seal of the material is relatively high. The material is physiologically safe. In special cases, the suitability of the material must be verified based on the anticipated chemical and mechanical stresses.
Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO Matting features a special thermal fleece laminated to the underside which bonds with the adhesive, while also reducing impact sound and enabling a faster heat-up response for the tiled covering. The fleece results in a sound improvement of 13dB. The thermal barrier results in approx. 80% more heat directed to the tiled surface compared to the standard DITRA HEAT Matting.
