Schluter Systems
Electric Floor Heating System with Integrated Uncoupling Technology

DITRA-HEAT is the only electric floor warming system that directly incorporates uncoulpling technology to ensure that floors aren't susceptible to cracked tiles and grout. Cables can be place wherever heat is desired for customized heating zones, and no leveling compounds are required, which makes for a quick and easy installation.

With the proven DITRA uncoupling membrane incorporated into the design, DITRA-HEAT provides the ideal solution for bringing comfort and floor warming to any tiled floor.

DITRA-HEAT COMPONENTS

DITRA-HEAT Membrane

The DITRA-HEAT membrane is designed to secure the system heating cables and serves as a universal substrate for tile coverings. Similar to DITRA, the original uncoupling membrane, DITRA-HEAT provides uncoupling to neutralize the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile covering to prevent cracked grout and tile, waterproofing to protect moisture-sensitive substrates, vapor management, and support.

Heating Cable

The twisted pair heating cable is available in 120 and 240 Volt formats. The cables can be installed without returning to the thermostat and produce virtually no electromagnetic fields.

Digital Thermostat

The programmable touchscreen thermostat features six programming periods per day, a set-up wizard, energy log, and a QR code for quick access to system settings.

How is DITRA-HEAT Different?

A viable floor warming system must address the magnified fluctuations in temperature that contribute to increased shear stresses between the substrate and the tile covering that can lead to tile cracking. DITRA-HEAT integrates customizable, comfortable electric floor warming with four additional functions that help to prevent cracking and are essential to a long lasting floor installation.
Schluter Systems Uncoupling
DITRA-HEAT provides uncoupling through its geometric configuration, which allows for in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating tha major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface.
Schluter Systems Waterproofing
DITRA-HEAT features a polypropylene compositoin which protects the substrate from moisture penetration. This is particularly important in bathrooms, kitchens, and any environment that may be affected by moisture.
Schluter Systems Vapor Management
The free space on the underside of DITRA-HEAT provides a route for the excess moisture and vapor to escape from the substrate that could otherwise cause damage to the tile covering above.
Schluter Systems Support/Load Distribution
Loads are transferred from the tile covering through DITRA-HEAT's column-like mortar structures to the substrate. Since DITRA-HEAT is virtually incompressible within the tile assembly, the advantages of uncoupling are achieved without sacrificing point load distribution capabilities.
