DITRA-HEAT Cables are designed to be installed with DITRA-HEAT uncoupling membrane at 3-stud spacing, which will generate about 12.75 Watts per square foot.
The twisted pair design of this heating cable creates an EMF-canceling effect and eliminates the need for a return run back to the thermostat. 10 Year Manufacturer Warranty • Manufactured by Schluter Systems
• Do not purchase a heating cable the same size as the area to be tiled; this will be too much heating cable!
• Never CUT the heating cable. This would change the cable resistance and could lead to a fire.
