No-nonsense electrical underfloor heating system, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E is delighted to report the pleasing results of impact sound reduction tests on its latest innovative uncoupling membrane for crack-free tile and stone.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-TB has been renamed as Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-DUO, in recognition of the fact that the matting now offers two officially-verified features over its parent product DITRA-HEAT: thermal breaking and impact sound reduction. The newly-confirmed impact sound reduction of up to 13dB is perceived as a 50% reduction by the human ear.
This new development brings the tally of features offered by Schluter’s underfloor heating to seven in total—it also serves as a bonded waterproofing, uncoupling, crack bridging and vapour pressure equalisation layer. Together, these features aid the construction process, protect the fabric of the building and improve privacy for occupants.
The matting is also designed for the secure attachment of heating cables as an integral part of the no-nonsense electrical underfloor heating system, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E.
