Cable System The cable electric floor heating system is a heating cable rolled on a spool that is laid out by the installer 3” apart across the area to heat. The wire is run back and forth across the area to heat, using the included plastic cable guides to secure it to the floor with the cold lead running up the wall to the electrical box. These heating systems will allow you to easily heat any shaped area including odd angles and turns. The RED HEATING ELEMENT CAN NOT BE CUT, so be sure to accurately measure the space you are heating. For assistance please see Tips for Choosing the Right Size System. This system must be completely embedded in a self-leveling mortar 1/4" to 1/2" thick. Use only polymer modified cement based mortars. The heating system should be installed on concrete or concrete backer board.
The included cable guides can be secured to the subfloor with screws, nails, adhesive or glue approved for use with the given subfloor. The cable guides can also be cut to length.
Additional cable guides can be purchased.
The included installation monitor can help give you peace of mind while installing the floor warming system. Connect the system leads to the monitor prior to installation. The monitor will "scream" a warning in the event the heating element is cut or damaged allowing you to make any necessary repairs before the heating system is embedded in mortar.
