PVC Heating Mat
The PVC heating mat system is ideal for installations within regularly shaped areas, where 0,5m wide self-adhesive mats can be quickly rolled out across the floor in parallel runs. The heating cable is attached through a series of loops to a thin but tough fibreglass mesh for rapid installation. This system is available in a choice of 150 and 200W/m² heat outputs to accommodate different requirements.
This system is suitable for all applications, providing primary or secondary heating in all rooms or projects that adheres to building regulations.
No increase in floor levelsThe dual insulated heating wire is 3 mm thick.
DurabilitySturdy glass fibre mesh with double sided tape for secure installation.
Quick InstallationSimply roll out the self-adhesive mat and stick down to the floor.

The PVC heating mat can be installed virtually under any floor finish (contact Warmup for additional information), however the system was designed for installation under ceramic or stone tiles.
The PVC heating mat is available in 2 different wattages: 150W/m² and 200W/m². As standard the 150W/m² should be used, however in cases where the space to be heated has a high heat loss, the 200W/m² version should be used.
To specify the required materials it is needed to determine the available floor area to heat. This area corresponds to the total area of the space minus the surface occupied by fixtures (such as kitchen units, toilet, bathtub, etc). The area to heat is equal to the surface where circulation is possible.
|Step 1: Measure room dimensions |
Work out the total floor area. If the overall room is rectangle in shape, for instance like in the image 4m by 2,7m, the total area is 4 x 2,7 = 10,8m².
|Step 2: Disregard any area taken up by furniture |
Work out how much of the floor space is taken up by fixed objects. In the example shown the following fixtures can be measured as follows:
Bathtub: 0,9 x 2,7 = 2,43m²
Basin + Toilet: 1,5 x 0,8 = 1,2m²
The total area occupied by fixtures is 3,63m²
|Step 3: Determine the floor area to be heated |
The total floor area to be heated will be the total area minus the area occupied by fixtures: 10,8 – 3,63 = 7,17m².
|Step 4: Select the heating mat size |
Due to the fact that there must be a minimum distance of 5cm between the mat and the walls, and also because when after cutting and turning the mat there will be always a small separation, the total area of the mat should never be above 90% of the heated area.
The maximum heating mat area will be 7,17 x 0,9 = 6,45m², this means that the mat size to be chosen is 6m² according to the heating mat dimensions table.
The system must be controlled via thermostat and we recommend the use of cement coated insulation boards in order to improve savings and system performance.
Choosing the correct control system is crucial in ensuring that the heating system works in the best possible way, efficiently and easily.
Using Insulation Boards with floor heating significantly reduces the heat-up times and running costs.
