STEP Warmfloor radiant heating for your hardwood, engineered wood and laminate floors
Plank style finished floors come in many shapes, sizes and colors. The luxuriant look and feel of these floor products combined with a STEP Warmfloor® radiant heating system creates a finished floor installation that greatly enhances the comfort and value of your home.
Step Warmfloor® is an excellent system to be applied under engineered or hardwood floors. For a wood floor, it is very important to have a low and stable temperature on the whole floor surface. Because STEP Warmfloor™ is self-regulating, the material acts like a sensor over the whole floor area and therefore, can not overheat. For heated floors under hardwood, it is essential that the temperature stays below 86°F or damage to the wood can occur.
Radiant heat should not be turned abruptly on and off, as this will subject the wood fibers to be repeatedly traumatized, causing stress fractures, gaps and twisting. With STEP Warmfloor® the heating level can be lowered to attain the ideal constant temperature by using a STEP Control™.
Installation of STEP Warmfloor® under wood is a breeze; simply cut the element to the appropriate length and make the electrical connections. Secure the elements to the sub-floor (with approved tape, staples, or pegs) and cover according to trade practices.
