Heavy-duty screed heating cable for use in 40–100 mm screed layers.

Features and benefits:

  • Robust polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating protects the TwistedTwin™ heating cable during installation and prolongs product life span.
  • Perimeter insulation foam acts as a thermal break and expansion gap around the screed.
  • Storage heating effect: In-screed systems have a slower heat up and cool down time and are suited to rooms that are in constant use, so heating can take place during off-peak times when low cost energy tariffs are active.
  • Suitable for use as primary or secondary heating applications in insulated properties.
  • Flexible cable spacing allows for variable heating output per square metre.
  • Range of control options including wireless and remote (specified separately).
  • Ten-year warranty.

Applications:

Suitable for use as underfloor heating with a concrete screed with most floor finishes in new builds and renovation projects, subject to manufacturers’ guidelines on maximum floor temperature.

Standard product features

Perimeter insulation foam:

Size (roll, l x w x t): 50 m x 80 x 5 mm.

Options

Fixing:

- 8 mm staples:

  • For fixing to foil-faced insulation boards only.
  • Allow four staples per linear metre of cable.
  • Supplied in packs of 600; tacker gun required for installation.

- Galvanized steel fixing profile:

  • 25 m roll, can be mechanically fixed to timber or concrete substrates.
  • Cable spacing in mm: Divide total heated area (m²) by cable length (linear metres) then multiply by 1000.
  • Recommended spacing: maximum: 150 mm; minimum: 50 mm.

Heating cables:

Consult manufacturer's literature for further details (cable length, output and resistance data).

Control:

For installations with an Economy 7 energy tariff, manufacturer recommends a manual control to switch the heating on and off in conjunction with the floor temperature sensor.
