Product Description

Schluter Ditra Heat Cables (DITRA-HEAT_E-HK) are twisted pair heating cables designed for integration with Schluter DITRA-HEAT uncoupling membrane in interior floor warming applications and feature:

  • Cables snap into the membrane; clips and fasteners are not required
  • No self-levelers required to encapsulate the cables; installation time significantly reduced
  • No return to thermostat required
  • Produces virtually zero electromagnetic fields
  • 120 V and 240 V options available in a variety of lengths

Important Ordering Information for Ditra Heat Cables:

  • Do not purchase a heating cable the same size as the area to be tiled; this will be too much heating cable!
  • Very important: Never CUT the heating cable. This would change the cable resistance and could lead to a fire.
  • Install the heating cable at a spacing of 3 studs (3-1/2" – 9 cm).
  • Minimum spacing from walls or fixtures (e.g., cabinets) is 3" (75 mm).
  • Minimum spacing from other heat sources (baseboard heaters, fireplaces, forced air heating ducts, etc.) is 8" (200 mm)
  • Minimum spacing from any plumbing drain is 6" (150 mm).
  • The heating cable section of the cable must be entirely installed under the floor covering. In order to prevent a fire hazard, do not install it anywhere else (e.g., in a wall).
  • Never install heating cable under vanities, bathtub platforms, kitchen cabinets and islands or any other fixtures. Excessive heat could build up in these confined spaces and may cause a fire.
  • It is helpful to plan the location of a buffer zone, as it is not possible to predict where the heating cable will end. The buffer zone is an area where heating is not essential, typically behind a toilet or adjacent to a door opening. This area allows for placement of excess heating cable.
  • Heating cable testing is required while the heating cable is on the spool and at two subsequent steps during installation to ensure cable quality and for warranty purposes. A megohmmeter is required for the insulation resistance testing of the heating cables.
