Save valuable time on your electric floor heating installation!

SunTouch’s open-weave mesh TapeMat can be installed in one day. There’s no need to wait for mortar to cure overnight before laying tile.
You can achieve warm floors in four easy steps. Simply urnroll and attach your mat(s), secure the floor sensor (comes with all SunTouch thermostats), apply thin-set mortar, and install your flooring.*

  Edged with double-sided tape for fast & easy installation that adheres directly to your subfloor.
  Mortar bonds easily through mesh with the underlying material.
  Only 1/8" added floor thickness compared to typical tile installations
  Easily adjusted to accommodate curves, angles, and cut-outs
  Can be trimmed & flipped to accommodate your layout (only along orange mesh)
  Also available in 2' & 3' wide rolls

*After installing your floor heating system and new flooring, please wait 28 days for the mortar to cure completely before having the thermostat connected & turning the system on.
