|Under Timber Heating|
Speedheat laminated panel heaters are suitable for installation under floating timber or floating laminate flooring. Laminate products look like timber, but are usually tougher than the timber products, and are therefore very suitable for high traffic areas and where office chairs on caster wheels are used.
Laminate products usually don’t have temperature limitations. The timber products often have a limitation on the maximum temperature allowed for floor heating – usually of the order of 27°C. Check with your flooring supplier what the limitations are for your preferred product in order to ensure you use the correct Speedheat product.
Speedheat laminated panel heaters can be fitted between the underlay and the floating floor or, if the subfloor is smooth and clean, between the subfloor and the underlay, if it is the thin type. To ensure the effectiveness of the installed heater panels, do not place additional scatter rugs on top of the floating timber floors. The heater installation process is as follows– please consider this process when planning your flooring installation.
Speedheat laminated panel heaters are available in two heating outputs: the 160W/m²panels produce a maximum temperature of 38 - 40°C and are suitable under laminate flooring. The 125W/m² panels produce a maximum temperature of 28 - 30°C and are suitable under timber flooring, in conjunction with a thermostat that will limit the maximum temperature to 27°C.
Speedheat does not recommend thicknesses of more than 12mm. In addition, by limiting the maximum temperature to 27°C, the heating will effectively warm the floor but not the room. This is because about 8°C of the floor heat is lost to the air, limiting the maximum air temperature to 19°C, if the room is properly insulated and heat losses are minimised. Locations with sub zero temperatures will further reduce the heating output and it is recommended that an additional heating source be used with the floor heating.
The underlay is thoroughly cleared from staples, nails and other foreign objects.
