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 unroll 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 cut orange mesh)
• Also available in 2' & 3' wide rolls

SunTouch = Zero EMF
An emerging issue in the electric radiant heat industry is EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation. SunTouch pioneered and sells only ZERO EMF products constructed with active dual wire EMF-canceling technology.
All SunTouch products use a complex wire construction with two heating elements in parallel with an added and patented helical twist to eliminate EMF. Other electric radiant floor heating companies sell single-wire systems that release high levels of EMF when compared to SunTouch.
What is EMF? Electromagnetic fields (EMF) come from all electrical appliances, but studies show an average American's daily exposure is less than 1 unit (mG) of EMF. But. when you sit on an unshielded electric radiant floor, you may be exposed to 20, 40, or more times the average daily exposure. This Data comes from Independent testing. Read More Here
Is limiting exposure to EMF important? No one is certain. The World Health Organization says the data is inconclusive to date, but continues their research. We provide this EMF information because it is important to some people, not to frighten you or exaggerate any risk.
For many years customers have chosen SunTouch Zero EMF systems, but we leave the choice to you after explaining what we do know.
