The Schluter DITRA HEAT E Kit is a complete underfloor heating kit that contains the complete set of Schluter DITRA HEAT Products – the Schluter DITRA HEAT uncoupling mat, Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK electric heating cable, and a Schluter DITRA HEAT E R touchscreen thermostat.
Available in the following sizes – 3.2m², 5.6m², 8.0m².
Schluter DITRA HEAT is a polyethylene uncoupling membrane that has a cut-back stud structure and an anchoring fleece that is laminated to the underside. It is designed to work as an uncoupling, crack bridging, waterproofing and vapour pressure equalization layer that is able to carry an electric heating cable – the Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK Heating Cable. This negates the need for a separate heating mat to be laid on top of the membrane, reducing floor height build up and reducing project costs. It can be used on walls and floors, and is suitable for use on problematic and unstable substrates. This kit is also available with the Schluter DITRA HEAT DUO matting – this matting features a special 2mm anchoring fleece that reduces impact sound and enables faster heat up time of the heating system.
Schluter DITRA HEAT E HK is an electric heating cable with a unilateral connection for installation in the uncoupling matting. Spaced at 3 studs apart, it produces a heat output of 136W/m², suitable for both floors and walls. Spaced at 2 studs apart, it produces a heat output of 200W/m², suitable only for walls. It connects directly to the Schluter DITRA HEAT E R Thermostat – a touchscreen thermostat with a backlit display that features fully adjustable timer programs, selectable room settings and is compatible with European integrated switch clusters. It measures 5.5cm x 5.5cm.
The Schluter DITRA HEAT E Kit is quick and easy to fit – the uncoupling membrane is supplied in a number of rectangular mats measuring 0.8m x 1m. The number of mats included depends on the kit size purchased. These mats can be adhered to the substrate using a suitable tile adhesive, or we recommend using Ardex AF200 Plus Uncoupling Matting Adhesive. The heating cable can then be installed in the matting in the exact area that you want to heat, then connected to the thermostat. When this is finalised, the tiles can be laid straight on top of the entire installation using an suitable tile adhesive.
