For wood and laminate floors EcofilmSet
provides the luxury of electric underfloor heating to living rooms,
bedrooms, hallways, loft conversions and conservatories.
EcofilmSet can be installed on top of either suspended timber or even solid
concrete floors enabling installation in all r o o m types except
EcofilmSet is ideal for installation under the
following floor coverings: Laminate, Engineered Board & Real Timber.
Remember to butt the element edges together, do not
overlap the EcofilmSet elements. Place them centrally within the room so
that any unheated gaps are at the edges of the room
It is recommended that
when planning your room the elements run in line with the longest room
dimension, this keeps elements and electrical connections to a minimum
making installation easier and quicker.
It is recommended that you plan to use the widest
EcofilmSet element wherever possible (1000mm) as this minimises electrical
connections. Widths of 500mm and 300mm should be used to maximise floor
coverage when it is not possible to use the larger size.
EcofilmSet is available in lengths between
2.0m and 8.0m in 0.5m increments.
It can easily be trimmed to length with scissors; therefore for
intermediate sizes pick the next largest length and plan to cut to the
specific size during installation.
A layer of Polyester Vapour Barrier must be used to cover the whole
EcofilmSet heating system. This is to offer an additional layer of
mechanical protection and Electrical insulation as well as protection
against mass spillage of liquid on the finished floor.
Note: EcofilmSet underfloor heating element is
extremely simple for any competent DIYer or professional tradesman.
However final Electrical connection to the 230V mains supply must be
carried out by a qualified electrician in accordance to current
wiring regulations. back to Installation guide.
