In contrast to traditional floor heating, electric heating mats are not embedded in the blind concrete layer but in the tile adhesive. This significantly shortens the time needed for heating; therefore; overheating due to the mass of the concrete can be avoided.
The thickness of the BVF H-MAT electric heating mat is only 3.8mm, so unlike conventional heating cables, it is possible to build individual and additional comfort floor heating without raising the floor level, since the tile adhesive or the floor levelling layer should be at least as thick as this.
After installation, the heating mat floor heating system can be put into operation immediately, and it can be connected directly to the thermostat with a 2.5m long factory-installed connection cable. Thanks to Twin- Conductor technology, it needs to be connected to one terminal only.
Whether it is a new heating system or only a floor replacement, the installation is easy. For bathrooms, regardless of the real heat demand, we recommend heating mats with a larger product capacity (150W/m2) for quick and dynamic heating.
