Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT

Quick and Quiet! – Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-DUO provides rapid heating response, and reduces impact sound…

…all this while ensuring tile and stone remains crack-free and as good as the day it was installed.

Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E, the complete patented system for electric heating under tile and stone, offers ease of installation and quick warm-up times. It can now be specified with matting that boasts certified impact sound reduction of 13dB, in addition to an integrated thermal break.

Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-DUO (formerly known as Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-TB) is a polypropylene membrane with a cut back stud structure and a special 2mm anchoring fleece laminated on the underside. The ‘-DUO’ element reflects the two officially-verified features that the matting offers over its parent product, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT: thermal breaking and impact sound reduction. The newly-confirmed impact sound reduction of up to 13dB which to the human ear is perceived as a 50% reduction. In terms of thermal break credentials, DITRA-HEAT-DUO pushes 80% of its input to the surface. To put that into context—for an input of 136W/m2, a massive 110W/m2 is directed to the surface during the heat-up phase. This unique product results in greater heating efficiency and lower running costs for Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E in comparison to other systems, which lose up to half of the heat into the screed or subfloor.

Both Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT and Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-DUO serve as uncoupling, bonded waterproofing and moisture barrier layers, as well as eliminating the need for self levelling and primers.

Leaving other electric systems out in the cold, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E is the perfect all-in-one integrated solution for heating under tile and stone. It is suitable for use on both walls and floors and a low assembly height makes it ideal for refurbishment and renovation projects. In terms of configuration, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E is most suited to the creation of concentrated heating zones, to give added luxury to particular areas of a project.

All elements of the Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E system are designed to work in harmony: the cables clip securely into the mats, eliminating the need for adhesives; the studded design allows for uniform spacing without the need for measuring or marking and the whole assembly can be tiled upon immediately following installation.

Time-saving benefits include:
• Easy press-to-lay cable – no tape or glue required, saving tilers up to 70% of time in comparison to other systems
• No self-levelling layer or primer laying – time saved on application
• CE Marked waterproofing – simply by sealing the matting joints and connections
• Loose heating cable – greater flexibility, include heat only where it’s needed
• Uniform spacing – no measurements needed
• No need for insulation boards or sound reduction measures
• Integrated and comprehensive packages – all from one trusted manufacturer
• Can be tiled immediately – no waiting time
