Carbon floor heating



Usage

A high technology heating element emitting healthy heating in the infrared spectrum. It is made specially for heating all kinds of wooden and laminate floors. The main difference with the classical floor heating is that the heating element here is used directly under the flooring – without a cement coverage. The many advantages include quick heating, even heat distribution on the whole floor, precise temperature control. It is used only for dry premises.


Floor construction

A standard construction scheme for wooden and cement floor and laminate.


Comment: The insulation is not strictly mandatory when using on top of wooden floor. A thin vapor material called PE Film is used between the carbon film and the wooden flooring for soundproofing. For other kinds of wooden floorings floor there are specific floor constructions which are covered in the Documents section.

Carbon heating film

The Carbon heating film comes in rolls with two different widths - 0.5m (20inch) and 0.8m(31inch). These two kinds can be cut in length according to the area that needs to be heated. These stripes come ready for installation with mounted cold ends and can be connected parallel to a thermostat. For primary heating source a room needs 80% floor coverage. The carbon heating film is 200W/sq.m (20W/sq.ft). This power allows the floor to heats up quickly.

Here we have quickly heating of the floor and precise control after that. The system is very quick and that's why the carbon heating film is very energy efficient. We use multifunctional programmable digital thermostats with floor and air sensor and degrees in C and F. All thermostats include a floor probe, a manual, an installation box for the wall.
