Electrical heating cable for the DITRA-HEAT-E system
The electrical heating cable Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E-HK is installed in the uncoupling mat Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT and is used for applications in floor and wall assemblies. It is available in lengths from 4 to 244 meters. Since our systems are certified for waterproofing, the heating cables are approved for use in bathrooms and wetrooms.
In floor areas, the heating cables can be installed immediately after adhering DITRA-HEAT, using a minimum spacing of 9 cm (every third stud ≙ 136 W/m²).
For wall installation, the heating cables are installed once an adequate adhesive bond has been reached. The installation spacing is either 6 cm (around every second stud ≙ 200 W/m²) or 9 cm (every third stud ≙ 136 W/m²). The use of mats is recommended for wall assemblies.
Use the cable tester Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E-CT to measure the resistance of the electrical heating cables DITRA-HEAT-E-HK and the remote sensors supplied with DITRA-HEAT-E thermostats. The testing device should be used to monitor the resistance of the heating cables during the entire installation phase and alerts the installer with an acoustic signal in the event of damage. The cable tester automatically shuts down 60 minutes after the last key activation (values will not be saved).
