If this product is installed on a concrete slab in a basement is a thermal barrier apllication recommended before?

Asked by: Gfr3sh
The install instructions suggest the thermal barrier. Ours was installed over subflooring. The membrane does form a nice barrier however.

should hardy backer board be used or can it go down right over wood sub flooring? Is the thinset layer required under the membrane?
Asked by: dredman5
For most substrates, a premium modified thinset is suggested. You can use plywood or exterior grade OSB substrate and any surface should be sound, dry and free of dust and debris, and meet or exceed any recommendations from the tile manufacturer.

I asked the question, "How wide is the membrane", and received an answer of 8", but I am quite certain this is incorrect for the value I am looking for. Most uncoupling membrane rolls and sheets are around 39" wide and it would be extremely inefficient if this one was only 8" wide. I would have to check the specs again but I believe the membrane is about 5/16" thick and the length varies based on the square footage of your product, so the only dimension left is the product width. Could you please review this and respond back with the correct width? Based on the pictures and the average width of similar products, it should be close to 39". Thanks!
Asked by: Diesel
The roles I used were I believe 40" in width and came in 10ft long roles - covers 40 sqft. And, you're correct at a depth of around a 1/4" thick which easily accommodates the heating wire and still have a little room to accept mortar. I believe the membrane does come in longer rolls but the width is uniform 40"from all the material we used.

HeatMatrix 40 sq. ft. Uncoupling Membrane is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should have used Schluter This was priced comparably to the Schluter mats that are for heated floors but those are small sheets and this was a roll, so we went with this product and regret it. The corners will not stay down in the thinset because of the way it was rolled. Very frustrating application issues with no instructions on packaging to resolve.

THis stuff works great... all you need is the mat, the wire, the 'loudmouth' continuity detector and the thermostat for a great heated floor system. Installation requires someone with experience... not for the first timer.

Our contractor recommended the SunTouch brand for their top quality materials and overall performance. We are using this product in a basement bathroom to improve temperature comfort during the winter months. Michigan winters are especially cold, and this product should improve this lower level bathroom heating. Our contractor has had experience with this floor heating system and has told us that it provides the latest technology with the easiest installation. The wire channels provide for a great method for wire installation, with the membrane laying flat for smooth results. Heating is even and the digital temperature control works seamlessly with a programmable thermostat. This membrane is well made and has great product warranties for 25 years. Heat Matrix also offers online support for homeowners, which gives me the piece of mind as well. Complete product installation is provided with the product for DIY homeowners.

Finally no more walking onto a frigid bathroom floor in the early morning during IL winters! I requested this item (which as part of the offer from the vendor included everything needed for the heated floor minus the ceramic floor tiles or grout that goes on top) to give my bathroom a more high-end feel. Before starting the installation, I unpacked everything and made sure I not only had everything I needed, but also checked the quality of the construction of each component so that I could make sure I didn't damage anything during install. I was pleased to find that all components were well made and showed no signs of defects or any wear prior to install. The only suggestion I could make to the manufacturer is to design the uncoupling mat so that the wire can also travel diagonally to accommodate those who may have walls that are not perpendicular to each other (didn't apply in my case).

Just as the video they show, it is easy to install, its made well and works great. the membrane is very light and sturdy due to its design. Depending on the area you might use more than one sheet and its great that you can just add them to the exact amount needed for your project. It is absolutely awesome, specially for my wife and for people who want to be comfortable with nice heated floors. I really like that I can get more for either ceramic tiles or laminated floors. Ii is also a plus that they do give you a 25 year warranty on the wire and 10 on the membrane, is plenty of time to know that it will last. I got my friend to help me install it and she was so happy for me, she is getting her own for her house. Make sure you also get the thermostat and the wire from SunTouch since you want everything to work at its optimal

The important first step is to read the instructions a number of times, and highlight particular notes for your application. It took time and patience, but the finished results are wonderful. I went with wires spread at 3 inches apart with the mats placed on a base of thin set mortar over 3/4 inch plywood. I have laminate flooring over the heated mats. When it's all said and done, it was worth every moment. It is very versatile especially when cutting the mats for areas around vanities and so on. You will smile each time you step onto the floor. There is nothing better than warm feet, and although this took time for the install, I could not imagine doing it any other way or with any other product.

I've tried a few different types of floor heating systems, and this one is the best so far! I love that you can choose where to put your heating wire (others that had wires preinstalled wasted heating elements under vanities, etc..). This membrane holds the coated blue heating wire in place securely in many different desired configurations (see pics). I also really like the LOUD MOUTH tool that you can attach the heat wire lead lines onto (from the heating element wire package) which will alert you if there's a break in the wire as you insert it onto the membrane. This is fantastic because you never want to complete the job only to find out there's something wrong with the wiring! The Loud Mouth has light indicators and sounds a SUPER LOUD alarm at the time there's a break in power so you know exactly where the issue is! The Loud Mouth product comes with a 9v battery inside unit- you must remove sticker guard on battery and connect to device). It also comes with the mini screwdriver for attaching lead wires from heating element. (see pics) The SunTouch thermostat has a 7-day programmable setting, "vacation mode", floor sensing control, energy usage monitoring, and has home automation tie-in. The matching "beauty ring" around the thermostat is removable and paintable if desired. It also has multiple color display themes. The thermostat has a three year warranty, Dual voltage(120v/240v), has English/Spanish/French options, GFCI protection, 15 Amp (resistive) relay output and has a 15' long sensor. All in all, when this membrane is used with the associated heating wire, Loud Mouth alarm, and Thermostat, this product is superior and I would recommend this to anyone wanting a high quality, easy to install, reliable floor warming system!

The membrane works with the heater wire that gets laid into it at specific spacing depending on the room size. It is all controlled by a thermostat so you have complete control over the comfort levels. There is nothing better than stepping onto a heated floor. After a shower it feels great too. And an added bonus is the heat will rise into the room too. It is easy to cut and shape and install per the easy instruction. It does need a source of power to run at 120V AC for the control. It will raise the floor about 0.25 inches and we made adjustments during our bathroom remodel which was not a big deal. We are enjoying the luxury of a heated floor especially in this really cold weather it is awesome!
