Heat Mat PKM-160 Underfloor Heating Mat 160Wsqm (Standard rooms)

Heat Mat offers A professional fast to fit system designed to provide an energy efficient heating system in very well insulated areas. This system is designed for very low heat loss properties including modern new-build developments which often have a limited power supply available. 160W mats provide a low power consumption heating system which makes them suitable for powering by local renewable energy sources such as PV panels.

160W mats offer a versatile underfloor heating system which can be used to supplement other heating in moderately insulated properties, or as sole source in very well insulated situations.

  • Designed to provide floor warming in all rooms, and sole source heating in well insulated areas Integrated earth shield, allowing safe installation in wet areas including bathrooms
  • When used with an intelligent thermostat timer, 160W systems react faster, are more energy efficient and cost less to run than lower powered alternatives
  • Technologically advanced wire design delivers minimal build height combined with a robust high powered heating cable
  • Particularly suitable for large areas, where loose heating cables could take three times as long to fit
  • The UK’s largest range of mat sizes, providing the best possible coverage with the minimum number of mats

Selecting the correct sized heating mats

To start with you will need to calculate the free floor area (FFA). To calculate the FFA you should measure the room to find out the total floor area. You should then subtract from this any areas where kitchen or bathroom furniture will be placed, or where furniture without an air gap beneath it will be positioned. Once you have taken off these areas you have your FFA. Our recommendation is to deduct 10% for fitting space in rooms up to 15m2, 7% for rooms between 16m2 and 25m2, and 5% fitting space for larger rooms.

Combining multiple units

160W heating mats are designed to be laid together with other 160W mats to ensure the perfect fit every time. The mats are wired into the thermostat or junction box in parallel.

Simple and speedy installation

Heat Mat electric underfloor heating mats are incredibly simple to install, and in large areas can take one third of the time a loose heating cable would take to fit. The mats can be cut and turned to ensure that they fit the room perfectly, and for particularly complicated areas the cable can be stripped from the mat and laid as a loose cable. The mats readily affix to the floor with the four strips of double-sided tape, and the strong fibreglass mesh above the cable ensures it is protected during tiling.

Sub-floor surfaces and insulation board

160W mats are only suitable for installation in very well insulated areas, and are the ideal heating system for today's most energy efficient properties. In all circumstances we recommend installing the mats directly onto a thermal insulation layer, such as Heat Mat's underfloor heating insulation boards.

Suitable for nearly any floor covering

If you are unsure of the final floor covering, but you have a very well insulated property 160W mats can be installed and covered with flexible levelling compound. This allows nearly any floor covering to be laid on top including tiles, stone, carpet, laminate, solid wood, Karndean and vinyl.

Energy efficient solution

160W heating mats are almost 100% efficient at converting electricity into heat and they can easily be powered by locally generated electricity from either photovoltaic or wind power sources. When used with Heat Mat’s NGT thermostat they form a Part L compliant system, and they are also suitable for integration into a home/building automation system.
