Nexans TXLP/2 Floor Heating Cables are UL Listed to ensure safety and are ideal for installation within a new concrete slab pour. The triple layer protection covering the heating wires allow installation in virtually any situation whether on a frame floor, within a new concrete pour or on top of an existing slab. Safe enough for a shower floor installation with 30 Year warranty. The quarter inch (.250) thickness works best inside slabs or in thickset mortar beds (not thinset).
The " 2 " designation is for Dual wire which minimizes Electro Magnetic Fields to nearly zero and means 1 lead per cable connects to the thermostat. Nexans also still manufacturers a single wire cable, but the Dual wire is easier to install and is more popular.
Nexans cables warm your floor for comfort and also warms people and objects and is not wasted by heated air collecting at the ceiling. Instead the warmth stays near the floor where we live allowing thermostats to be set at lower temperatures.
