Electric heating cables have been used as a primary heat source in Scandinavian countries and Europe for over eight decades. In the last 30 years they have been available in North America and most often used for floor warming under tile floors with heated wood and laminate floors gaining in popularity. In-floor heating is now a must-have to any tile floor, but like many new trends, it has been priced as a luxury item. The high cost associated with floor heating or floor warming systems is primarily attributed to the niche market they have occupied up until now.

Thick Floor Heating Cables are well known to commercial heating contractors but not as well recognized within the residential market. Twice as thick as thin floor warming cables & mats, these cables are designed for longevity by withstanding stress during the construction process and conforming to a wide range of installation methods. Thick heating cables are the only product approved for concrete slab embedded installations such as slab on grade, basements and garages and are also the best choice for drypack installations. They are also ideal over un-reinforced wooden sub-floors when used in conjunction with metal mesh and embedded in an overpour as low as 3/8" thick. This is a preferred method for use under heated engineered hardwood and laminate flooring. Similarly, they can also be installed under natural 3/4" wood flooring when 3/8" plywood strapping is used between cable runs. Be sure to contact us for more details regarding these innovative installation methods.

Thin Floor Warming Cables are the most common and popular format used today. Designed with nominal thickness in mind they are designed to be installed over a reinforced sub-floor or concrete floor, covered in a thin layer of mortar or self-leveling cement before flooring tiles, engineered flooring, laminate or vinyl is installed. Alternatively, thin floor warming cables can be installed over un-reinforced subfloors and covered with decoupling membranes before tile installation. On-centre spacing of our thin cables is between 3-5" depending on whether it is to be used as the primary heating source or only as a secondary floor warming system. Our cables are well insulated and are tougher than many competing brands available.

Thin Heating Mats are ideal when labour is a premium and you have a fairly rectangular area to heat. Designed with nominal thickness in mind they are designed to be installed over a reinforced sub-floor or concrete floor, covered with a thin layer of mortar or self-leveling cement before flooring tiles, engineered flooring, laminate or vinyl is installed. Alternatively, thin floor warming cables can be installed over un-reinforced subfloors and covered with decoupling membranes before tile installation. Our mats are designed for 12W/SF, which means they can serve as the primary heat source in many installations. Mats are the first choice when installing over an existing concrete floor such as in a basement or garage renovation.
