Basic Installation Method

  • 1 Prepare sub-floor by removing all dust and debris.
  • 2 Fix Palziv insulation to the sub-floor using a double sided tape or glue spray. Ensure that the whole surface is covered.
  • 3 Once the insulation is fixed, unroll and correctly position the Rayoflex Mats.

  • 4 Every time the mat is cut and turned, close the gap between the mat and cover the cable with the foil tape provided.
  • 5 Cut a small groove into the insulation so the cold cable connectors lay flush and run them back to the thermostat.
  • 6 Lay the thermostat floor sensor in the conduit and place between mat turns.
  • 7 Re-test the mats to ensure none have been damaged during installation.
  • 8 With the system turned off, either lay the wood flooring or the carpet underlay and carpet.
