SunTouch Mats can be shaped to fit any area. See how the orange mat is cut (not the blue heating wire!) and turned to fill the space. In more complex areas, the wire can be removed from the mat and shaped. We can help you with layout and design! Call the radiant floor heating experts at 1-866-558-3369

    I have two questions regarding the use of your warming mats. First, what nominal height or thickness will these mats add to a finished, tiled floor? Secondly, in areas under tile not installed with the mat, what do you recommend as a spacer to bring the other tile up to finished height over the mat?

      Hi George!

      All SunTouch mats are low-profile, roughly 1/8" in height.
      Overall a mat system will raise the floor just under a quarter of an inch (1/4") after mortar is applied.
      Since the mats are so thin, no spacers are needed to keep the tiles level, just a little extra thin-set mortar in the areas where there is no mat.

      If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or give us a call at (866) 558-3369. We’re here to help!
