Radiant heating systems attract architects and engineers

With no two design projects the same, architects and engineers like the variety of heating elements offered by STEP Warmfloor. Residential and commercial requirements vary depending upon many building and environmental factors, whether it is for full building heating or simply a single room, or for snow melting or gutter deicing needs. STEP Warmfloor’s radiant heating elements are versatile enough to go under virtually all types of floor covering. They can be walked on during installation and can be nailed or stapled without compromising its effectiveness and integrity, as long as the conductive flat wires on either side are not damaged.

STEP Warmfloor’s free design service is another attractive service architects and engineers enjoy.  Our designers will work with you and provide you with CAD drawings for the element layout, wiring diagrams and bill of materials, as well as charts showing the return on investment to be expected compared to alternative radiant heating systems as part of our free design service. That means you can give your clients a solid figure, not just an estimate.

Measuring in at only 3/64” (1.2mm) thick and available in a variety of widths, most commonly 12” or 9”, STEP Warmfloor® is so thin and lightweight, there is virtually no change necessary in architectural designs to allow for either changes in floor height, or weight due to thermal mass (typically a concrete slab).
