Schluter Introduces Ditra-Heat-TB
Schluter Systems' Ditra-Heat-TB is an electric floor warming system with an integrated thermal break that allows fast installation, according to the company.
As a result, the all-in-one system offers a simpler installation as the membrane, heating cables and thermal break are all combined in a single layer.
Ditra-Heat-TB provides a thermal break, a floor warming system and an uncoupling system in a single layer.
The heating cables are easily snapped into place on top of the uncoupling mat with no clips or fasteners. The installer has complete flexibility on where the cables are placed so every installation is customized to suit the exact requirements of the owner. Because they are held securely within the Ditra-Heath-TB mat, there is no need to use self-leveling compounds to encapsulate the heating cables, according to the company. Instead of waiting for a leveling compound to set, tile installation can begin immediately, resulting in a much faster installation.
The system is compatible with all existing Schluter thermostats, including the new touchscreen thermostat. The matting is available in rolls and sheets and heating cables are available for 120V and 240V circuits.
