Mounting

12345The infrared film heating system is recommended for installation under light flooring materials, namely: laminate and parquet, linoleum, carpet and other types of modern floor coverings. Installation and connection of infrared heating film specifically for the above-mentioned coatings does not require complex technological solutions.

If there is sufficient experience in carrying out construction and installation works, infrared heating film can be installed under any types of ceramic, composite and stone materials. At the same time, the economic efficiency and comfort of this type of heating in many respects significantly exceeds the traditional cable and water heating systems for floor coverings existing on the market for more than 30 years.

It is worth noting that the reliability and effectiveness of the heating film directly depends on the manufacturer, the most accurate adherence to technological recommendations for installation and operation rules of heaters. So, we strongly recommend using the services of qualified professionals.

Our products have not only all the necessary international certificates (CE, ISO 9001: 2001, ISO 14001: 2004, TUV, ГОСТ, УкрТЕСТ.), But they are not inferior to competitors in quality. Its reliability and quality have been tested by our customers and this is the best recommendation.

In order for the underfloor heating system to help create comfort in your homes, offices, and any other rooms that require basic or additional heating for many years, we suggest that you carefully read the following recommendations.


Installation instructions



Installation under linoleum:

  • A reflective heat insulator is placed on the original rough screed.
  • Stripes of infrared film are laid out on it and connected by wires.
  • A layer is covered with a vapor barrier at the top and is connected with adhesive tape along the edges.
  • Now you can roll out linoleum and fix it along the walls with a plinth.
  • The warm floor is ready!!! The total thickness without linoleum is 2.5-3mm.



Installation under the laminate or parquet:

First option.

  • Polyurethane foam with a reflective layer (substrate) 3-4 mm thick is placed on the initial rough screed.
  • Stripes of infrared film are laid out on it and connected by wires.
  • Top covered with a vapor barrier and connected at the edges with tape
  • Now you can install a laminate or parquet.
  • Warm floor is ready!!! The total thickness without laminate is 2.5-3mm (wires are hidden in the substrate).

Second option.

  • On the initial rough screed, a substrate is laid under the laminate (in blocks) on average 3 mm.
  • A foil heat reflective screen for warm floors is rolled on top of the substrate.
  • Stripes of infrared film are laid out on it and connected by wires.
  • Top covered with a layer of vapor barrier and connected at the edges with tape
  • Now you can install a laminate or parquet.
  • Warm floor is ready!!! The total thickness without laminate is 2.5-3mm (wires are hidden in the substrate).

For such installation, a film of normal or high power EPN-1 (200 W) or EPN-2 (250 W) is used, depending on what type of surface it is intended for, a laminate or parquet board and thermal insulation of the room. 



Installation under ceramic tile:

  • A foil heat reflective screen for warm floors is rolled onto the original rough screed.
  • Stripes of infrared film are laid out on it and connected by wires.
  • Top covered with vapor barrier and tightly connected along the edges with tape
  • The mounting plastic grid is rolled onto the film and through special holes in the film all 4 layers for fixing are screwed with dowels or self-tapping screws to the rough screed. (Caution! The grid must be plastic.)
  • A thin layer of liquid adhesive for tiles or a special mixture for underfloor heating is spilled over the grid. This way you get a dense, fixed surface. The thickness of the fill is literally 1-1.5 mm in thickness of the grid.
  • Now you can install the tile.
  • Warm floor is ready!!! Total thickness without tile is 4 mm.

For such installation, you can use a film under the tiles EPN-6 (200 W) or EPN-6.1 (250 W), depending on the thickness of the tile and the thermal insulation of the room.

Infrared heating film setup for linoleum or carpet.

Tools required: screwdriver; pliers (or special tools for organizing contacts), wire cutters, electric tester, mounting knife, scissors, etc.

Make a plan for the placement of infrared heating system

Calculation: for the main heating, it is necessary to put from 60%, for comfortable - from 40% of infrared film of the total usable floor area (with the exception of stationary objects like furniture, stationary decorative structures, kitchen, household appliances, etc.). A deviation of 10-40 cm can be made, a distance of up to 5 cm is allowed between the stripes of the film, overlapping of the film is not allowed. Planning the placement of infrared film should be based on the fact that the film is cut into sections in separately defined places for cutting. The length of each section is 25.0 cm.
Calculate the power of the heating system, the required number of thermostats, check the power capabilities of the electrical network.

Calculation: Take for example the EPN-1 200 W per 1 m2, based on the total amount of infrared film, the current is calculated by the formula: I = P / U

where I is the current strength, P is the power of IPO, U is the voltage of the mains.

The magnitude of the current strength must be known to select the required cross-section of the electric wire, select the temperature controller model and determine the compliance of the existing standard wiring with power loads.

Calculation example.
Main heating or kitchen-dining room with a total area of 20 m2. Flooring - laminated board.
With the exception of kitchen, upholstered furniture, household appliances, as well as perimeter deviations, the total film area that will need to be installed in this room will be approximately 12 m2.
Thus, the total maximum power of the system will be: P = 12 m2 x 200 W = 2,400 watts.
I = P / U = 2,400 W / 220V = 10.9 A
Recommended cross-section size of electric wire, copper - 1.5 mm. 


The maximum number of film heater that can be connected to one thermostat is 16 sq. m. If there is a need to connect more film through one temperature controller, then the connection is via a magnetic controller.
Non-standard engineering solutions can only be introduced with the help of qualified specialists.
Determine the point of connection to the main electricity and the installation location of the thermostat, then install the wires and the floor temperature sensor.

Thermostat can be mounted on the wall in the most convenient place for users. The desired place is at a height of 15-20 cm from the floor near electrical outlets, to which you can make a hidden stationary connection, or connect to the outlet using a cord. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the presence of additional equipment connected to this outlet. The electrical wires and the temperature sensor wire can be hidden in the wall, or covered with a decorative box for electrical wiring. Systems with power over 2.5 - 3 kW are recommended to be connected through a separate circuit breaker.

 

 



Clean and prepare the floor (1), lay out the vapor barrier (2) and thermal insulation (3) over the entire surface. Cut the film (4) according to the plan, lay down thermal insulation and fix it with adhesive tape.

 

 

 

 


The floor should be smooth, thoroughly cleaned of dirt, stones and water.
Any heat insulator suitable for use in underfloor heating systems from 2 mm thick is used. It is not recommended to use a foil heat insulator (coated with aluminum or other metal foil.)

It is desirable to arrange the infrared film along the length of the room — the more whole strips of film — the fewer connection points and electrical wires. Plan the connection points so that the mounting locations of the contacts and wires are located closer to the wall, preferably under the baseboard.
The film is cut exclusively into sections at the cut points - as indicated on the film (each section is 25.0 cm).

To fix the film to the heat insulator, you can use a thin double-sided adhesive tape.
Using contact clips, electrical connections are made between copper conductive tapes and electrical wires according to scheme B.

ATTENTION! The connection of the film heater to the electric network is carried out in parallel! All stripes are connected to the thermostat in parallel!


 

 

 

 

 

   


Joints and contact clips are carefully insulated with vinyl mastic insulation as shown in Figure B. In the case of excessive thickness of the contact group in the floor (1) or heat insulators (3), corresponding recesses are made under the film. The wires are fixed with type adhesive tape. A temperature sensor is mounted underneath the heating film with adhesive tape.


 

 

 



After completing all the work on connecting and isolating the contacts, connecting the thermostat, please monitor the places of insulation and connecting the mounting wires, as well as the cut line of the film. Switch on infrared film for 15-20 minutes to verify functioning.
The film is covered with a vapor barrier (2) and a final floor covering (5) (laminate, linoleum, carpet, etc.).
STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! Overlap or cross film stripes on each other!
In case of any questions on installation or problems in the operation of the heating film, we will be happy to provide possible advice and support.

Installation of heating film under ceramic tiles, composite or stone coatings.

Necessary materials and tools:
1 Heating film.
2. Electric wire according to the installation scheme and taking into account the maximum load (copper, minimum cross section - 1.5 mm).
3. Connection clips and bitumen adhesive tape (provided in the kit or supplied separately).
4. Vapor barrier film with a heat-reflecting surface or other solid heat-insulating material. It is undesirable to use heat-insulating materials with a metal coating (aluminum foil, etc.).
5. Polyethylene film with a thickness of 0.1 mm or more (vapor barrier).
6. Reinforced plastic grid.
7. Mounting dowels (6mm X 60mm or 6mm X 40mm).
8. Adhesive tape (for fixing materials).
9. Thermostat with temperature sensor.
10. Corrugated pipe and mounting box.
Tools required: screwdriver, pliers (or special tools for organizing contacts), wire cutters, electric tester, mounting knife, scissors, hammer, drill (6mm X 120mm), hammer, etc.
Repeat steps 1, 2, 3 in the installation instructions for the film under the laminate and other light coatings.
Clean and prepare the floor, lay out a vapor barrier film with a heat-reflecting surface or solid thermal insulation according to the size of the surface. Cut the film according to plan, lay it on the surface and fix it with adhesive tape. Between the strips of the heating film, make gaps of 6 - 9 mm. for further drilling (reinforcement).

The floor should be smooth, thoroughly cleaned of dirt, stones and water.
Any solid heat insulator or conventional vapor barrier is used.
When using thick thermal insulation such as polystyrene foam, on top of the entire floor heating layer, it is necessary to make an additional cement screed with a thickness of at least 20 mm. Only after hardening this screed is it possible to lay ceramic tiles.
It is forbidden to use a heat insulator coated with aluminum or other metal foil.
It is recommended to arrange infrared film along the length of the room. The more long stripes of film you use - the less joint clips and electrical wire used. Plan the connection points so that the mounting locations of the contacts and wires are located under the wall, preferably under the baseboard.
The length of each section of the film is 25.0 cm. It is forbidden to cut the film in other places.
STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! Overlap or cross film stripes on each other!
During the installation of the heating film, it should be prevented from being damaged by any objects.


 

 



Attention! All infrared film strips are connected in parallel and connected to a thermostat. Using contact clips, electrical connections are made between copper tapes and electrical wires according to the electrical circuit.


 

 

 

 



All connections, as well as the free ends of the film, are carefully insulated with bitumen adhesive tape. The infrared film is covered with vapor barrier with a margin of 100 mm, and on top it is covered with a plastic reinforced grid with a margin of 50 - 70 mm.


 

 



Then the floor is drilled in increments of 15–20 cm. exactly between the film stripes, in order to join heating film to the floor with dowels. When drilling, avoid damaging the heating film.

ATTENTION!
- Be very careful when choosing a drilling location! In any case, avoid damage to the heating film.
- Before drilling the floor, make sure that there are no conductive networks and communication pipes! 
It is strongly recommended to spill the entire floor heating layer with a self-leveling mortar with a layer of 3 mm or more.


   

 

 



After completing all the work on connecting and isolating the contacts, connecting the thermostat, please monitor the places of insulation and connecting the mounting wires, as well as the cut line of the film. Switch on infrared film for 15-20 minutes to verify functioning. . After that, you can fill with a self-leveling mortar. 
The mixture should be MANDATORY for warm floors, such mixtures contain a plasticizer, allowing the screed to not burst when heated.


 

 



After all the requirements are fulfilled, ceramic tile or other composite or stone coatings with a layer of tile adhesive of at least 4 mm are placed on the infrared film. 


   

   
     


STRICTLY FORBIDDEN!
- Turn on the infrared heating floor until the cement screed or tile adhesive has completely hardened, i.e. until the completion of the 28-day period from the moment of installation of the final floor covering.
- In case water gets on the floor, it is forbidden to use a heating film until the entire floor layer has completely dried.
For any questions that arise during the installation or operation of the heating film, please consult a specialist.
Safety measures and storage requirements for the heating film.
ATTENTION! The heating film is an electrical appliance that can only be used if installed under an appropriate floor covering.

Store the heating in a room with an air humidity of up to 70% at a temperature of 10 - 50 C. IT IS FORBIDDEN to get moisture, any liquids or other substances at the cut points of the heating film and directly on them.
Avoid physical damage to the laminate of the heating film, bending, or unnecessarily twisting the film roll.
DO NOT cut the film in places that are not suitable for cutting it.
Installation and connection of the heating film to the mains is recommended by professional specialists.
IT IS FORBIDDEN to mount the film in rooms where there is direct contact of the heating film with water and in rooms with an air humidity of more than 80%.
DO NOT cover the film with large heat insulators (large soft toys, very thick carpets, mattresses, etc.) or heat the film with other heating devices.
DO NOT use other materials to connect the heating film to electrical wires and to insulate these connections.
It is NOT RECOMMENDED to use a heating film together with other electric devices or heating films of other manufacturers, and also to use it in a different way than for heating floor or wall coverings.
