BOSTIK: Floor Warming Systems

March 26, 2013

This company’s Consumer & Construction Division recently announced the debut of HeatStep™ Mat and HeatStep™ Wire floor warming systems. These products are designed to be easily installed and completely safe to the end user, with dual wires to shield against electromagnetic fields and ground fault circuit protection.

HeatStep Mats can be rolled out and attached to the subfloor using two-sided tape, then covered with a cementitious layer before the flooring is installed. HeatStep Wire is recommended for larger, more complex room layouts, and is applied by securing cable straps to the subfloor and stretching the HeatStep Wire cable between them before covering with a cementitious layer and flooring. During installation of both products, a wire fault detector can monitor if any wires become accidentally cut or damaged and sound an alarm in time for easy repair before being covered with flooring.
