Never cut, shorten or modify the heating cable in any way; it will change the electrical characteristics of the cables and possibly cause overheating and a fire.
Never allow the cable to overlap or cross over itself.
Do not use in exterior applications.
Do not use with solid, hardwood flooring.
If LVT is being installed, ensure that the manufacturer’s instructions allow for use with radiant heating systems and that the LVT is acclimated at least 24 hours before installation.
Do not place objects directly on top of the floor that could impede/trap heat emanating from the floor heating system including but not limited to flush-to-floor furniture, rubber or memory-foam mats, and mattresses. These objects could cause unsafe temperatures to be reached underneath these objects that may damage the object and/or the flooring material.
Do not install Mapeheat Cable in direct contact with any combustible surfaces, or install it in/on/under walls or in closets.
Do not lay heating cable under cabinets, fixtures or appliances.
Do not extend Mapeheat Cable beyond the room or area in which it originates.
Do not use over cracks or control joints subject to out-of-plane movement, or where in-plane movement exists greater than 3 mm.
Do not use over Woodplank flooring, metal, fibreglass, laminate or any other dimensionally unstable substrate.
Do not use in areas at will be constantly submerged or subject to standing water.
Do not use on bituminous substrates.
Do not use on highly flammable material.
The total R-value of layers on top of heating products should not exceed R value of 0,15m²K/W.
Floor temperature is limited by the thermostat to +40°C. The typical operating temperature range of Mapeheat systems is +27°C to +35°C.
