The Varme Mat system is similar to the Varme Cable, except that the cable comes already taped to a 50cm wide fibreglass mesh.
The main advantage with this design being that makes it much faster to lay out in larger 'open plan' areas when compared to the cable system.
Varme Mat 200 is based on the same design as Varme Mat 150, however the output has been increased to 200 w per sqm making them ideal for use in conservatories and other areas of high heat loss.
Installation is simple, the mat is simply rolled out onto the existing sub-floor or insulation boards and when the opposite wall is reached the mesh is cut and the mat rolled back in the opposite direction (see diagram.)
When the mat is in place, the release paper on the double sided tape is peeled back and the mat is then pressed to the primed floor to hold it in place for tiling.
As a general rule mats will take up about 85% of the available floor area, heating mats should not be laid in floor space that will be covered by baths, pedestals, toilets, cupboards etc. including kitchen units.
Varme Mat systems come complete with:
- Heating cable supplied woven to a self adhesive mesh.
- Fully programmable FH-01 thermostat controller with floor probe.
- Floor primer.
- Roller for primer.
- Simple installation instructions.
- Manufacturers Lifetime Warranty.
