Introducing Schluter Ditra-Heat-TB & Touchscreen Thermostats

Schluter is excited to announce the next generation of Ditra-Heat with Ditra-Heat-TB and a new programmable Touchscreen Thermostat (Ditra-Heat-E-RT). Schluter Ditra-Heat is an unparalleled electric floor warming system designed to be used in conjunction with natural stone and tile installations.

Ditra-Heat combines the properties of standard Schluter Ditra with easy-to-lay heating cables for an exceptional installation that not only provides perfectly warmed tile and stone floors but is also designed to last.

Schluter Ditra-Heat-TB is the newest matting in the Ditra Heat lineup. Just like traditional Ditra-Heat, Ditra-Heat-TB features the same great uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and load support properties of award winning Ditra but also includes a thermal break for improved heating efficiency.

By directing heat towards the tile and away from the subfloor, the tile is heated much more quickly – heat your tile and not the subfloor. With the thermal break, floors are warmed up to 70% faster over concrete substrates. Furthermore, Ditra-Heat-TB has a nominal thickness of 5/16″ (8mm) to maintain the minimum overall thickness of the tile assembly and ease transitions to lower surface coverings.

Just like regular Ditra-Heat, Ditra-Heat-TB installs quickly and easily – few tools are required and self-leveling compounds are not required for encasing the heat cables in the membrane. The unique design of the Ditra-Heat membrane allows the installer to lay cables exactly where they need to be so unnecessary parts of the floor aren’t warmed.

 

Schluter Touchscreen Thermostat

Along with the Ditra-Heat-TB, Schluter is also unveiling a new programmable Touchscreen Thermostat (Ditra-Heat-E-RT) to control the floor temperature.

The Touchscreen Thermostat features built in  Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) along with a digital display and back-lit screen. With a intuitive and interactive 3.5″ color display, programming a floor warming system has never been easier. The thermostat can be programmed for up to six periods a day, and through an adaptive, built-in function, the thermostat learns when to turn heating cables on and off at the correct intervals to reach target temperatures throughout the day.

With the rising costs of energy today, many homeowners are concerned about household energy consumption. The Touchscreen Thermostat has the ability optimize energy use with a touch-driven energy consumption log and also allows the homeowner to input their current Kilowatt-hour rate for calculated energy costs over a given time period. With these features, the homeowner has the flexibility to maximize comfort while saving on energy costs.

Schluter Ditra-Heat-TB and Touchscreen Thermostat combine to make the Schluter Floor Warming System one of the best on the market.
