Underfloor Heating for Tiles/Marble/Slate/Natural Stone Floors
Under floor heating is not a new idea, in fact, the Romans were using it 2,000 years ago. Electric underfloor heating in the UK, on the other hand, is relatively new and has only been in use since the 1960s. However, it has progressed a long way since then. Especially in the last few years.
Energy efficiency has improved dramatically with the use of high tech insulation.
Installation is simpler now as it does not need to be fixed deep into thick concrete floors.
The whole floor is heated up more evenly and smoothly without getting too hot giving total heat distribution.
Reliability is great now with floor heating being the long lasting option that requires no maintenance.
Our floor heating cables and mats are premium quality with a unique TwistedTwin™ cable and lifetime warranty.
With a traditional heating system the top of the room is usually over heated to allow the lower parts of the room to reach a comfortable temperature. Electric underfloor heating radiates heat evenly upwards from your floor. This creates the perfect spread of heat, or “heat signature”, throughout your room resulting in increased comfort and energy savings.
With all of Landford Stones floor installations we recommend the use of a de coupling membrane. Schluter-Ditra 25 uncouples the floor covering from the substrate and neutralises the tensions between the substrate and the tile covering that result from the varying deformations of the materials. Likewise, stress cracks in the substrate are bridged and are, therefore, not transferred to the surface covering.
