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
Plan Your Layout
|Roll Out Mat(s)
Turn and cut mesh (if needed) to custom fit to your room. Attach mat to subfloor with the built-in tape then mount the SunStat and place floor temperature sensor between 2 heating wires.
|Cover with Mortar
Cover mats with a cement based mortar, let it cure, then install your floor covering. If you are installing tile, you can install the tile when you apply the mortar. Connect mat power leads to your thermostat in parallel.
