FAQ

Heating with electricity is only expensive if electricity is used to heat the air. The infrared heating foil works on the principle of radiant heat and dispenses with the bad heat transfer medium - air.

Yes, this has the following functions:

compensate for unevenness
thermal insulation
Impact sound reduction
the blasting of the infrared rays upwards
Facilitates the installation where the cables and connectors can be recessed / recessed.

Yes, a kind of carrier layer such as Fermacell, OSB boards or Mi-board has to be laid over the heating foil. This carrier layer has the function of mechanically protecting the carbon heating foil and absorbing the infrared rays as a heat transfer medium and distributing the heat evenly. The thermal resistance of the entire structure has to be considered.
Yes, the striped carbon foil can be shortened every 25cm or 2cm, depending on the type. The full-surface carbon foil can be shortened at any point.
Yes, the "normal" line is designed with 16 A (for 3600 watts) continuous load. It should be noted here how many consumers are connected to this circle. If you want to design your entire apartment with infrared heating foil, it is recommended to consult an electrician.
Basically, you do not need a deep knowledge of laying the infrared heating systems. However, the installation to the 220V mains must be carried out by a suitable specialist.
Yes, if the carbon heating foil is used as underfloor heating, the temperature must be monitored by means of an external floor sensor. Only then can the maximum permissible temperature of the floor covering be fallen below.
The impact sound insulation, which is laid under the carbon heating foil, does not have to be suitable for underfloor heating. With the underlay for the vinyl, attention must be paid to the compatibility for underfloor heating.
By using flexible adhesive, the residual moisture may cause the residual current switch to trip.

The carbon heating foil is on the rise. That's why there are currently the low-voltage variants 12/24/36/42 / 48V and the 230V version for our power grid on the market. There are two principles to the structure, the striped version and the full-surface version.

The most common width of the heating tracks are 50,80 and 100cm but also 25, 30, 43, 60 etc. are in circulation.

The power consumption is mainly given for one m².

We carry the carbon heating foil in 80.100.130.160.220.400.500 watts per m².

In the striped carbon foil heating the copper traces must run each left and right at the edge of the page to be isolated. For the full-surface carbon heating foil, the entire cutting edge must be insulated.
Usually this is harmless as long as the damaged area is isolated. But beware: If the copper strip is defective or damaged, the foil is no longer useful and must be disposed of. However, you can cut the film from the damaged spot and then of course use it again. Repairs and modifications may only be carried out by a qualified electrician.

The infrared heating foil can be laid as a full-fledged heater on the entire floor * or on the ceiling.

* Only under furnishings that are at least 7cm above the floor. Such as. A bed on feet / stilts. ONLY the full-surface carbon heating foil may be laid under fixed furnishings.

The infrared heating foil is mainly installed as a supplement to the existing heating system in order to use the pleasant infrared heat in certain areas.

For most heating films, it does not matter how it gets laid. The type designation should be read from above.

Use a laminated / reflective 3-5mm thick isolation board for laminate and click parquet. For vinyl, you need another isolation board that keeps the vinyl / design flooring from slipping apart.

Here the manufacturer information is to be considered.

For wood or laminate flooring, as well as for carpet flooring, we recommend a maximum output of 130W / m2.

For installation under concrete or tiles, a power of 160 / 220W / m2 can be used.

Other factors such as room size, insulation and the number of external walls must be taken into account.

The supply line / phase must be protected by a personal protection switch / FI.
All floor coverings that are CE marked and suitable for underfloor heating can be used. This is indicated by an appropriate symbol on the product. It is important to note the maximum permissible temperature of the flooring manufacturer and in no case to exceed. That's why using a suitable thermostat is a must.
Infrared heating foil, is the thinnest variant of the electric heating source. Due to their low construction height, mounting below the floor covering is very popular. The infrared heating foil heats up evenly and thus ensures pleasant floor heat over the entire laid surface.

The warm-up time of the floor depends on:

- material of the soil

- concrete or wood
- choice of sound insulation 2mm / 5mm
- flooring
- performance of the infrared heating foil.
Thus, the warm-up time can be from a few minutes to an hour.

Infrared heating foil should have a thickness of at least 0.3mm for floor mounting, otherwise it is not designed for the load and is only suitable for ceiling mounting. Renowned manufacturers grant a warranty of up to 10 years and thus a service life of 30 years. In addition, branded infrared heaters are CE approved and ISO certified.
