DITRA-HEAT Membrane Sheet 39"x31" = 8.4 SF | DH5MA
Warm & protect your floor at the same time!
DITRA-HEAT by Schluter-Systems integrates electric floor warming with the functions associated with DITRA: uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and support to ensure a long-lasting installation under tile or stone floors.
• DITRA-HEAT combines the flexibility of loose heating cables with the ease of installation of mat systems.
• Cables can be snapped into place wherever heat is desired, which significantly reduces installation time and effort.
• Tile directly over DUO or pour self-leveler over the top to install alternate floor coverings like:
- Engineered Wood, floating or glued-down
- Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank (LVT/LVP)
- WPC or Wood Plastic Composite core flooring
- SPC or Stone Plastic Composite core flooring
Waterproof your installation with KERDI-BAND (sold separately); cover all joints, seams, and corners of the membrane to completely waterproof the installation before applying thin-set and tile

I was a little confused as to what I needed to order, so I called Warm Your Floor and spoke with Omar. He had me email him a diagram of what I was doing, and he customized the heating cable, floor membrane sheets, and thermostat to my job, so I didn't order too much or too little. The installer was really impressed when the heating cable stopped exactly where it was supposed to. I am a fan...Kudos.
Product is a bit difficult to work with if you do not keep these things in mind :
1.) The ends want to curl up when you put it down over your thinset.
2.) You cannot change the orientation of the layout once you start UNLESS you trim the excess on the long edge.
1.) Before using, unroll entire package and re-roll it in opposite direction and leave sit for a few days before using. This way the ends do not curl up when placing over the thinset. In a small area I would recommend the squares over the roll.
2.) Using the WarmWire 3.0 and the Approximate 3" spacing pg.14 on WarmWire manual, I had almost exactly 260 square feet of coverage using 280 ft. of the 3.0 cable.
