TempZone™ Floor Heating Ruler Cable Description

A cost-effective alternative to using the Prodeso Cable Installation Membrane, GripStrips Floor Heating Cable Fixing Strips are used for securing TempZone™ floor heating cables in place on floors at predetermined spacing to ensure even heating. These plastic strips enable you to keep the heating cable secured in position, uniformly positioned across the floor, while you install the floor adhesive. The cable fixing strips are 1 3/8" x 12 3/4" x 1/4" with studs every inch to allow for 3" or 4" spacing of the heating cable.

GripStrips are safer than metal fixing strips and are more durable than other comparable plastic strips on the market. They can be snapped together lengthwise for ease of installation. GripStrips come with three holes per strip to anchor the strips to the subfloor (alternatively they can be adhered to a clean subfloor--adhesive sold separately). Additionally, these strips have a unique design that allows them to "grip" around the cable to securely hold them in place while keeping tension on the cable during installation for maximum accuracy.

Every order of TempZone floor heating cables (without the Prodeso Membrane) will include a complimentary minimum quantity of fixing strips for installation. These items are additional or replacement strips that you can purchase.

Should I add insulation before installing electric floor heating and how will that affect the system's performance?

When installing electric floor heating over a concrete slab, an insulating underlayment like ThermalSheet is highly recommended to ensure efficient operation, faster heating times and warmer floor temperatures.

Do I need insulation when installing an electric floor heating system over a concrete slab?

When WarmlyYours electric floor heating systems are being installed on a concrete slab, we strongly recommend adding a layer of insulation over the slab prior to installing the system. While our electric floor heating provides up to 25% more heating power per square foot than many of our competitors, the slab will always act as a "heat sink." Some of the heat that would otherwise be transferred to the flooring surface will remain in the slab, causing the floor’s surface temperature to be considerably lower. This is true with any electric radiant floor heating system.

When installed on top of a concrete slab without insulation, it is generally accepted that electric floor heating will take the chill away from the floor and provide a small amount of warmth. Adding insulation on top of the slab and beneath any electric radiant floor heating system will allow a greater percentage of the heat generated to transfer to the flooring surface. This results in greater efficiency and therefore faster warm up times, higher expected surface temperatures and lower energy usage. The floor will have the capacity to warm to a comfortable temperature, and in some cases can be employed as the primary heat source for that room.

The recommended types of insulation are natural cork, insulated tile backer boards and insulated underlayment, such as ThermalSheet™ synthetic cork.
