Warmup Releases DCM-PRO Electric Underfloor Heating Mat

Named DCM-PRO, the heated decoupling system comprises of a self-adhesive castellated membrane and a heating cable that can be covered with a range of different floor types.  Since the self-adhesive layer of the DCM-PRO Mat also acts as a self-healing decoupling layer, it eliminates the need for additional fixings and other time-consuming installation processes.

The DCM-PRO Mat has a self-adhesive backing that can be attached straight to the subfloor, avoiding the need for mixing additional tile adhesive to affix the mat to the subfloor, meaning that installers no longer have to wait for the base layer of tile adhesive to dry before installing the cable.

The DCM-PRO Mat has pre-spaced channels on the mat designed to make it easy and quick to space and lay the cable evenly, saving time when measuring and calculating the correct spacing to output ratio for a project. The pre-spacing ensures accurate spacing throughout the installation, providing a consistent output of 150W/m2. The DCM-PRO Cable has unique qualities of flexibility and durability that provide maximum reliability during installation.

Key to its appeal for the homeowner is a self-healing feature that protects the floor covering from cracks or gaps caused by the seasonal changes to the sub floor. The patent pending self-healing decoupling layer of the DCM-PRO mat contracts and expands to deal with seasonal changes preventing damage to floor coverings. Unlike traditional fabric-based decoupling layers that tear upon movement, the DCM-PRO expands and contracts for durable, long-term protection. Rated as High Performance, DCM-PRO is proven to protect tiled floors from cracking (ANSI 118.12:5.4).

If self-levelling compound is required in order to waterproof a wet room, it can be poured directly onto the DCM-PRO System and flows through the channels of the mat. A self-levelling compound allows the system to heat effectively and protect the floor covering material such as tiles, laminate, engineered wood, vinyl, and carpet.

Once the DCM-PRO system is installed, it is easy to tile over or cover with a different floor finish. If self-levelling compound is not used, tile adhesive can be directly applied onto the system and tiles laid on top, with no risk of any damage to the heater. The unique design of the system ensures that the cable stays safe during the installation. Therefore, risk of mechanical damage to the cable due to stepping on the system with heavy boots or wing a trowel is minimised.

The DCM-PRO cable is offered with a Lifetime Warranty and SafetyNet Installation Guarantee when installed with the DCM-PRO Mat.
