Wooden flooring and underfloor heating make a great combination, but dual installations can be time consuming and costly.
Now, there is a brand new innovation that combines both - Timbertherm. Say hello to smart heat!
Harnessing Far-Infrared technology, Timbertherm provides a stylish wooden floor design with integral underfloor heating built in. Cost effective and simple to install, this all-in-one solution creates a smart, healthy and eco-friendly surface for residential and commercial applications - from family kitchen and bathroom, to spa or healthcare environments. Timbertherm is available in a spectrum of on-trend finishes with design options to suit all interior styles - perfect for new builds, renovations and make-overs.
Timbertherm features high performance engineered construction, made of eight individual layers. The surface layer comprises the highest quality sustainably-sourced Hard Maple, Elm or Walnut that’s sealed with a scratch-resistant coating and plywood core layers below, into which strips of Far-Infrared nano-carbon conductors are embedded. Connection components are fully waterproof and tested to IP65 (ingress protection) standards.
Timbertherm flooring can be laid on most dry, flat surfaces, from concrete to plywood. Panels are laid directly over a standard thin foam underlay, in the same way as standard multilayer engineered wooden flooring.
The power supply is positioned along the edge of the room and the first board is connected to the cord. Panels are then laid end-to-end, corresponding male and female connectors are joined and the boards are tapped together. Rows connect using a standard tongue and groove joint. Standard board dimensions are 1210 x 165 x18mm.
With Timbertherm, there’s no flooring height issues that you’d encounter with heating pad systems or the subfloor preparation necessary for typical wet underfloor heating installation.
The Benefits of Far-Infrared
Like sunlight, Far-Infrared heat gently warms objects (walls, floors, people) rather than the air around it, creating a more pleasant and consistent ambient temperature.
It is a type of electromagnetic radiant heat and is similar to light and radio waves. Far-Infrared rays are just under the visible light range in the electromagnetic spectrum.
At the flick of a switch, Far-Infrared rays are dispersed into integrated nanocarbon conductors. Evenly distributing heat throughout the floor, reaching 26°C in less than 5 minutes. Far-infrared heating is up to 60% more cost effective and 40% more efficient than other forms of heating!
