Emerson Introduces Floor Warming Cables for Uncoupling Membranes

Uncoupling membrane systems have become a popular solution to install between subfloors and tile, porcelain and wood flooring. Unlike concrete backer boards or plywood, uncoupling membranes expand and contract to prevent tiles and grout from cracking. However, their unique shape is not compatible with most floor heating cables or mats so contractors have not been able to incorporate the advantages of both uncoupling membranes and heating into the same flooring project, until now. 

To meet the needs of flooring contractors and the customers they serve, EasyHeat, a business unit of Emerson Industrial Automation, has introduced an easy-to-install floor warming cable specifically designed for uncoupling membrane systems. New WarmTiles™ DMC cables can be laid directly from a spool to the membrane in virtually any configuration allowing for a custom installation using product that comes directly from the distributors shelf. Available in 120 V AC and 240 V AC, the cable’s thicker diameter is tailored to perfectly snap-in for a secure and reliable fit. It is ideal for virtually any flooring project deploying uncoupling membrane systems, whether it is new construction or renovation.

EasyHeat WarmTiles DMC cables help contractors achieve faster, more profitable flooring jobs with maximum customer satisfaction. Unlike traditional floor warming heating cable installations, WarmTiles DMC cables do not require a self-leveling or scratch coat. Contractors can install the cables with total confidence to gently warm a wide variety of flooring materials such as marble, ceramic, glass and porcelain tile, slate, granite and poured or dimensional stone, as well as laminate and engineered hardwood products.

An affordable luxury, EasyHeat WarmTiles DMC cables are compatible with most major brands of uncoupling membrane systems. Cable heating area ranges from 0.7 m2 up to 23 m2, or 13 to 239 m in length. In addition, EasyHeat offers programmable and non-programmable dual-voltage thermostats to control the temperature, and optimize power requirements of the system. Cables are CSA certified for use in the U.S. or Canada.

“EasyHeat brings over 50 years of experience designing and manufacturing quality heating cable systems to this latest addition in its product line,” said Mike Winters, National sales manager for EasyHeat. “Contractors can install WarmTiles DMC cables knowing we have incorporated the proven durability and reliability upon which EasyHeat has built its reputation as an industry leader in heating cable solutions.”

Even in warm climates, tile and stone floors can feel uncomfortably cold. Simple to measure, install, and control, EasyHeat WarmTiles® floor warming is an affordable luxury that can be installed directly over concrete, plywood and now uncoupling membranes.  EasyHeat offers easy-to-install, reliable floor warming product that keep commercial and residential surroundings comfortable as well as functional.
