The Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Cable is available in 18 different lengths for single zones. Note: these cables must not be shortened. When selecting the heating cable for your application, please note that the table below with the heated space in m² does not specify the room size. To determine the heated space, deduct unheated zones such as perimeter areas and storage space from the room size.
The Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Cable can be installed in the matting on both walls and floors. It is recommended to set the spacing of the cable at 3 studs apart in the matting for floors, this gives a heat output of 136 W/m². For walls, the cables can be set at 2 studs apart – this gives a heat output of 200 W/m².
The Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Cable is easily installed in the matting by using an old grout float to press the cable down in between the studs. Use the Schluter DITRA HEAT E KARO Cable Dispenser to make installation of the larger size cables easier and more efficient.
Important: Testing of the cable must be carried out prior to installation, and again after installation of the heating cable and before tile/stone floor finish is installed. To test the resistance of the heating cable use the Schluter DITRA HEAT E CT Cable Tester with inbuilt alarm. See the table above for Ohm figures for each cable length (Art. No.).
