WarmStep from ThermoSoft International Corp., a manufacturer of do it yourself radiant floor heat systems, is specially designed for installation not only under the usual floor coverings: ceramic tile, marble, porcelain and stone, but it can also be installed under all types of laminate, engineered wood and wood floors.
WarmStep installs on virtually any subfloor and under any floor covering. WarmStep is so versatile that this one system can meet the heating demands of almost any floor. WarmStep can even be installed under carpet, vinyl tile and glued down floors under a layer of self-leveling cement, for heated floors anywhere throughout the home.
“Most radiant floor heating systems must be embedded in cement mortar before laying laminate and other floating floors,” said Dr. Eric Kochman, President of ThermoSoft International Corporation. “But not WarmStep! WarmStep is installed above the underlayment pad and directly under floating laminate, engineered wood or wood floors — without cement! This can save consumers expensive installation costs in addition to reducing their energy costs.”
WarmStep also reduces installation time. WarmStep’s standard sizes can be stocked for easy on-site fitment to any floor; its heating cable is factory mounted on rolls of fiberglass mesh which can be rolled out and the mesh can be cut so that WarmStep can be turned in any direction to fit the floor. No on-site splice connections or special tools are necessary.
WarmStep’s construction-grade fiberglass mesh provides an anti-fracture membrane that strengthens and prevents floor cracks in ceramic tile and other cementious floors. ThermoSoft also provides an InstAlarm(R)monitor that that will sound an alarm if the floor warming mat is damaged resulting in a short or open circuit, ensuring contractor and installer peace-of-mind, trouble-free installation and perfectly heated floors and warm tile.
