Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of construction solutions for the building industry, has launched a new and improved Strata Heat floor warming system, which includes a high-performance floor heating splice-less wire and an uncoupling mat.
The Strata Heat upgrade offers a fast, consistent, energy-efficient installation with a system warranty, thanks to the splice-less wire, transparent mat and thermal pack. It can be installed under tile, stone, vinyl, carpeted or hardwood floor.
“Strata Heat offers customers peace of mind due to its sustainability, increasing thermal heat diffusion by 20% while reducing energy costs up to 15% and minimizing cold spots to make homes feel more comfortable,” said Dustin Prevete, senior product manager. “This product not only has unparalleled innovative floor warming qualities not yet seen in the marketplace, but it offers fluency and speed of use that is vital for improving overall workability for both the installer and end user.”
According to Laticrete, the updated Strata Heat system features industry-leading innovation centered around the splice-less wire, the mat (for its hydration vents and translucent finish) and the thermal pack for its performance enhancing capabilities. The splice-less wire features a single diameter throughout, meaning users no longer have to bury the cold lead into the sub-floor, thus removing a step in the application process and making installations quicker and easier.
As the only UL Certified floor heating system on the market, according to Laticrete, Strata Heat reduces floor heat up and cycle time to reduce energy cost and is user-friendly thanks to the smart “Floor Focused” thermostat, which can be accessed through a smartphone app, smart home automation devices like Amazon Alexa. It also includes a system warranty.
