Successful heating of laminated wood flooring, genuine wood flooring and engineered wood flooring

A common misconception exists in the market that a timber floor cannot be heated, this is incorrect. With a GreenR specially designed High Coverage Low power out put heating system, Laminate wood flooring, engineered wood flooring as well as most species of genuine wood flooring can successfully be heated without any damage to the floor.

The low power heater has a power output of 130 watt per m² and covers the entire floor area, ensuring an even distribution of heat through the timber floor. This in turn ensures even expansion and contraction throughout the wood floor, with no tension on the floor joints.

All wood floor heating systems are managed by a dual management thermostat that measures ambient as well as floor surface temperature, by means of a remote probe sensor being placed below the floor surface. The probe ensures that maximum floor temperature of 27ºC is not exceeded (as specified by the South African Wood and Laminate Flooring Association)

GreenR Floor Heating has developed 2 possible ways of installing under wood floor heating.

1.           Screed Application

The element is affixed to the screed level and covered with a fibreglass mesh.

2.           Dry encapsulated heating system (Similar to carpet heating.)

This is a dry application and the heater is placed on top of the wood floor combilay or rubberlay just below the timber floor. This application is generally used in conjunction with rubberlay as no heat transfer takes place with this product and it is not compatible with a screed application, approximately 1.5mm thick.

Combine this with GreenR Insulation which are our superb and innovative insulation solutions.  Response times can be further improved to just minutes and the energy savings are unparalleled.
