The floor plan for your room's radiant floor heating system is unlikely to be a perfect square or rectangle, free of structural obstacles; therefore, you may need to modify the installation by free forming. Learn how simple this process may be: watch as an expert modifies the TempZone™ Flex Roll mat and secures the heating cable to the subfloor surface. Keep in mind that the installation guidelines that apply for both the standard indoor floor warming system installation as well as the free form process. Take extra care when modifying the Flex Roll mats and working directly with the cables to avoid damage to the products and ensure your heated flooring system will properly warm your home for years to come. When installing the TempZone™ Flex Roll electric mats or any other quality WarmlyYours indoor and outdoor radiant heating products, refer to the manual for complete instructions.
If you need to work around an object or tricky corner, you have the option to free form. Free form spaces are filled with loose lengths of heating element. A wavy line with an arrow will appear on the installation plan to indicate the area that needs to be filled. This symbol is accompanied by unit of measure in a circle that will indicate the amount of fiberglass mesh to be removed. Once the tape is trimmed, the heating element separated and the fiberglass mesh removed, position the heating element by hand and secure it to the floor with hot glue or tape. Try to maintain the three inch spacing, similar to the spacing on the heating rolls.
