Floor Construction


   SUSPENDED FLOORS

When fitting ECOFLOOR electric underfloor heating mats to a timber sub-floor it is essential that standard precautions to stabilise the floor are taken to prevent floor movement. All chipboard & timber floorboards must be covered with either ECOMAX insulated tile backer board or 18mm Plywood.

   CONCRETE FLOORS

For optimal performance it is recommended before laying ECOFLOOR, a layer of ECOMAX insulated tile backer board is fitted. This will minimise heat losses and ensure quicker heat-up times for the floor. ECOFLOOR electric underfloor heating mats can be laid directly onto an un-insulated floor. However, this will increase running costs and heat-up times.
