We carry a wide range of accessories for installing electric radiant floor heat. Some accessories are required for all installations, such as a Digital Multi Meter, which is needed for installing all electric radiant floor heating products. Other accessories are only recommended, as they will make your installation much easier and will lower the risk of damaging the heating elements while installing them, such as a plastic trowel, which eliminated the risk of cutting a wire with the sharp edge of a metal trowel.
We also sell cork insulation, which can be installed underneath mats of cables that are being installed over a slab subfloor. Installing cork insulation will provide a thermal break between the heating elements and the cold slab, which will lower the start-up time of the system. Please note, however, that this will not make the floor get hotter—it will only make the floor get warm faster.

Our Price: $603.00The DITRA membrane is the ORIGINAL uncoupling membrane designed for traditional tile floors (not to be confused with the new DITRA-HEAT membrane that allows heating cables to be installed inside of the mat). The DITRA membrane provides waterproofing, vapor management and prevents the cracking and delaminating of tile floors. Unlike the DITRA HEAT Membrane, it should be installed over heating mats or cables. Learn More
