 Laminated floors
Electronic floor for laminate covering

- Floor base surface must be carefully cleaned from dust and other interfering objects;

- Lay reflecting heat insulation material (Pepi Reflekt Poli, etc.) Material can be 3–6 mm thick, depending on evenness of prepared surface. To prevent displacement, material must be fixed on base surface and sheets must be fixed each to other with construction adhesive tape (Moment or other);

- Lay carbon-copper polymer film sheets according to prepared layout. Recommended not to lay it closer than 10 cm to the walls. Recommended to lay film in longitudinal room direction, minimizing number of individual sheets, electric connection wires and their connections. Observe that upper side is that where graphite stripes overlay copper stripes on sheet edges, during laying. For uniform heating lay sheets as close to each other as possible, preventing their overlapping, however. To prevent sheets from moving, they must be fixed with construction adhesive tape to reflecting material and between themselves;

- Construct electrical connection of carbon-copper polymer film sheets. Sheets are connected to power supply (thermal regulator commutation unit) parallel – it means that two wires will connect commutation box with each sheet, if only interconnections were not created.  Recommended to use wires of two different colours, in order to make wire mating in communication box easier. A number of wire connection solutions are possible.

First, clamps can be used, which must be pressed on wire end without insulation with flat pliers.
Then clamp can be riveted to copper strip located on film edges. However, we recommend to solder wires to copper strip by using temperature-resistant solder. Connection places must be carefully insulated with unvulcanized rubber or bitumen insulation tape (Sika MultiSeal, etc.) In the same way other ends of copper strips must be insulated, where wires are not connected. To make surface even, connection places may be submerged in reflecting material, located under carbon-copper polymer film, cutting out respective hollows in them.


Floor temperature sensor must also be installed. Sensor must be placed under the film in such way, so that one of carbon (black) strips was above it. Sensor and its wire must be immersed in insulation covering and fixed with adhesive tape.  Carefully memorize sensor location place, as no objects may be located on the floor above it. Wire connections in commutation box, as well as thermal regulator connection (according to the scheme provided) should be executed by qualified electrician;

 - After examining the circuit, power supply must be connected. If film sheets don`t heat up, or don`t heat up uniformly, seek defect in electrical circuit;

- Film sheets must be covered with moisture protection material, e.g., polyethylene film, in order to provide additional protection against moisture;

- Start laying laminated floor.


In choosing laminated parquet seek some designations indicating that this laminated floor may be used with heated floors.  Laminated parquet should be kept unpacked at room temperature for at least one week. After laying adjust maximum floor temperature to max. 20 °C for few days, then gradually increase it, if necessary. Otherwise, if you will lay cold laminated parquet and rapidly increase its temperature, it will deform. As maximum temperature for laminated floors is recommended 29 °C, however, if laminated floor was glued, then higher temperatures will not damage it.  Placing objects on the floor will hinder heat exchange, cause rapid laminated parquet temperature rise and possible deformation.
