Surface heating for electric underfloor heating
Heating foil also called carbon heating foil is the thinnest version of electric underfloor heating. Compared to other electric heating systems, the energy used is converted into infrared rays with almost no loss, which is what makes the infrared heating foil so efficient. Almost the entire surface within the heating foil heats up evenly and thus ensures pleasantly warm floors over the entire installed area.
The electric underfloor heating can be applied to the existing floor subfloor without any major construction work.
The infrared heating foil is well suited for cold floors and where underfloor heating is desired. It can be installed in the living room, bedroom, in front of the sofa or under the dining table.

When using electric underfloor heating, a thermostat that allows an adjustable temperature limit of 26°C must be used for control.
When using electric heating elements, ensure that the surface covering has the appropriate thermal conductivity.
A manufacturer's approval must be obtained in advance by the customer.
The installation of electrical heating systems may and must only be carried out by a specialist in accordance with VDE DIN 100.
Heating foil wattage and its use:
Vinyl = 60-80 watts/m²
