The V1 Radiant Positioning Mats feature a vented design which allows air to reach the vinyl adhesive below, across the entire area of the mat, by incorporating a small hole thru the top of every stud. This venting system allows the RPM-V1 Mats to breathe which accelerates the dry time of the adhesive. One benefit of the design offers the user the ability to install the rpm over a wood substrate without having to use staples. Another benefit and biggest cost savings of the RPM-V1 is it allows the mat to be installed over concrete using the same inexpensive vinyl adhesive currently recommended for the installation over wood.
