We would recommend the latex option for installing under vinyl heating in bathrooms and kitchens.
The working temperature of this particular system can be as low as 25 degrees C. This will still provide a primary source of heat.
There are many benefits to installing this sort of system throughout your home, claiming back some of that radiator space being one of them! This metal ribbon heating system doesn’t require any other heat sources to keep you and your family warm.
You won’t be inconvenienced with Allbrite’s underfloor heating system:
Little preparation is needed when it comes to installing our underfloor heating. As long as the surface area is flat and smooth as well clear of any rubbish and dust free, you are ready to go.
This versatile system can be effectively installed on top of any type of sub floor – concrete, wood, block and beam and insulated deck surfaces.
If you are laying LVT over the heating mats there is no need to apply latex level compound, but the mats need to be covered with Heat Pak Overlay Board over which you can apply your finished floor.
1 - Level Compound
It is important that you use a flexible latex based levelling compound, Allbrite has a number of suitable solutions available on the webshop.
2 - Thermal Blocking
When using any underfloor heating it is important to ensure the heat can flow easily and not build up under the flooring product. items like thick rugs, bean bags, mattresses or anything with a high thermal resistance should not be placed on underfloor heating.
