Prodeso/
Warm Tiles

Prodeso Heat Mat Membrane used in conjunction with the Warm Tiles cable and thermostat assembly is something to consider when you need both crack isolation and heat. The Prodeso Heat Mat Membrane is a polypropylene uncoupling crack isolation waterproof membrane that also doubles as a quick install cable heat mat. With the Warm Tiles cable the amount of heat is now your choice since the cables are embedded in the membrane to your specifications. Homeowners and installers both love this system for its ease of use and functionality.

Patented Heat Assembly System

MOISTURE CONTROL

The Prodeso Heat Membrane’s unique and patented design allows for air pockets to form between the subfloor and the membrane itself. These air pockets allow for a vapor cycle to form and balance the vapor content of the subfloor assembly, increasing the mechanical and structural property of the wood subfloor.The Prodeso Heat Membrane is made of polypropylene, a completely waterproof substance, that will protect the wood subfloor from water damages to ensure a long-lasting installation.

CRACK ISOLATION

The Prodeso Heat Membrane absorbs relative longitudinal movement between the subfloor and the tiles, eliminating the major cause of tile cracking and delamination making it possible to install underfloor electric heating on wood substrates. Each rounded square relief in the Prodeso Heat Membrane has a central cavity shaped like an inverted pyramid. When filled with thinset this inverted pyramid becomes an incompressible structure. These cavities act like pillars in a building support structure, evenly distributing and transferring the load from the tile floor to the subfloor below.

HEAT CONTROL

Even in warm climates, tile and stone floors can feel uncomfortably cold. The Warm Tiles Heat System cables are simple to measure, install, and control. The Warm Tiles Heat System thermostats make it easy to regulate heat. Choose the programmable thermostat to turn your system on and off automatically to suit your daily and weekly schedule, or choose the non-programmable thermostat for manual operation.
