4 reasons why this heating foil is the perfect fit

Foil electric underfloor systems are ideal for floating floor finishes such as wood. The heating cable is wrapped by two layers of foil which provides great thermal conductivity and fast heat up times. Unlike similar systems, ThermoSphere Foil has an abundance of features which make it the safest and easiest system to install.

BT21 Temperature

Superior heat exchange

The double layer of foil is specifically designed to protect the heating element and achieve an even spread of heat to the floor finish.

BT21 Time

Easy cut and return

Accessible cable loops simplify cut and return installation and provide abrasion protection for the heat element.

BT21 Sensor

Unique earth protection

ThermoSphere Foil is the only foil system with a continuous protective earth braid around the heating elements.

BT21 Control

Low profile

The low profile cold tail makes installation easier. It's only 4mm thick and can be concealed within the insulation.

Impact sound reduction

One of the most common paths of noise is hard floors such as timber. This is particularly significant in blocks of flats where hearing your neighbour’s footsteps is not uncommon. The combination of the 2mm cushioning overlay and 5mm cushioning underlay provides 19dB impact sound insulation.

Heating timber floors

Traditional solid timber flooring or engineered wood flooring work well with a foil electric underfloor heating system. Board thickness is a key consideration and we would recommend a maximum thickness of 18mm and a floor surface temperature of 270C to not be exceeded.

Heating carpeted floors

Yes. You can even use a foil electric underfloor heating system under carpeted floors! As well as ensuring your carpet doesn't exceed a tog rating of 2.5, it's equally important to not over insulate the layers above your floor heating system.
