SCHLUTER – DITRA-HEAT CABLE 120V
Product type: Cable
Schluter-DITRA-HEAT-E-HK are twisted pair heating cables designed for integration with the DITRA-HEAT uncoupling membrane in interior floor warming applications
- Do not purchase a heating cable the same size as the area to be tiled; this will be too much heating cable!
- Very important: Never CUT the heating cable. This would change the cable resistance and could lead to a fire.
- Install the heating cable at a spacing of 3 studs (3-1/2″ – 9 cm).
- Minimum spacing from walls or fixtures (e.g., cabinets) is 3″ (75 mm).
- Minimum spacing from other heat sources (baseboard heaters, fireplaces, forced air heating ducts, etc.) is 8″ (200 mm)
- Minimum spacing from any plumbing drain is 6″ (150 mm).
- The heating cable section of the cable must be entirely installed under the floor covering. In order to prevent a fire hazard, do not install it anywhere else (e.g., in a wall).
- Never install heating cable under vanities, bathtub platforms, kitchen cabinets and islands or any other fixtures. Excessive heat could build up in these confined spaces and may cause a fire.
- It is helpful to plan the location of a buffer zone, as it is not possible to predict where the heating cable will end. The buffer zone is an area where heating is not essential, typically behind a toilet or adjacent to a door opening. This area allows for placement of excess heating cable.
- Heating cable testing is required while the heating cable is on the spool and at two subsequent steps during installation to ensure cable quality and for warranty purposes. A megohmmeter is required for the insulation resistance testing of the heating cables.
