How does it work?

Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E is a system for electrical floor heating that quickly creates comfortably warm floor.   The heating cables of Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E are installed in the uncoupling mat corresponding to floor areas that are to be heated.   Due to the flexible control of temperatures and heating times provided by the Schlüter floor thermostat, you can use Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E to create warm tiles whenever and wherever you choose.

Product information

So what makes Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT so unique?

In contrast to conventional systems using pre-adhered heating mats, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E heating cables are installed within an uncoupling mat that offers optimal freedom for defining the areas to be heated.  Due to the crack-bridging properties of DITRA-HEAT, the system is suitable for installation over problematic substrates such as timber, green screeds etc, without any risk of damage to the tile covering or the heating cables. Naturally, the use of the proven Schlüter®-DITRA technology also prevents damage to the covering from programmed changes in temperature for heating and cooling cycles.

Because of its extremely low assembly height (uncoupling mat incl. heating cable just 5.5 mm), DITRA-HEAT-E is ideal for refurbishment.  It is also ideally suited for restoration and renovation projects. As an added advantage, the heating cables are directly laid in the uncoupling mat with tile adhesive and are located immediately underneath the tile covering, delivering heat quickly and efficiently.  Electrical floor heating is a cost effective solution because of the low investment and auxiliary costs.
