Vario Loose Wire Underfloor Heating Kits -No Thermostat

Vario is a typical underfloor heating cable kit that is meant to be installed in tight spaces.

The most sophisticated electric underfloor heating cable available is included in the Vario cable kits, as well as our innovative attaching strip, which is meant to speed up installation and save time on site.

vario-cable-and-fixing-strip

Safe, simple and reliable

Inside and out, Thermonet underfloor heating cables have a strong fluoropolymer coating, a continuous armoured earth sheath, and multi-shrand twin conductors.

The conductors are twisted together to remove electromagnetic fields (EMF) and to neutralize the cable’s stress, expansion, and contractions along its entire length, resulting in a more durable and long-lasting cable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Loose wire is ideal for tight spaces since it is simple to position and work around fixtures. In big open rooms, however, a matting system is suggested since it is faster and easier to install, and because the heating cable is already pre-spaced on the matting, there is less danger of uneven heating across the room.

90mm is the appropriate space between heating cables. The minimum and maximum cable spacings are 40mm and 110mm, respectively. Use the following method to figure out how far apart your cables should be:
Available Floor Space (m²) × 100 ⁄ Cable Kit Length (m) = Cable Spacing (cm)

All of Thermogroup's underfloor heating systems are appropriate for installation in the shower area if the shower floor is tiled (not a shower base) like the rest of the bathroom floor.

The cable features an IP68 rating for ingress protection and a continuous earth braid that runs the length of the cable. This guarantees that the cable is safe if it comes into contact with water and gives you peace of mind in the unlikely event that the installation is damaged. We recommend that you do not turn off the heating system in the shower area for added safety.

Underfloor heating cable must be coated with a cement-based substance and cannot be used in voids. As long as the shower seat is tiled to match the rest of the bathroom and all cables are covered with a cement-based flexible tile glue, installing heating on a shower seat is entirely safe.

If you're wondering which floor heating system is best for you or are overwhelmed by the numerous options and possibilities available, Thermogroup's online underfloor heating system picker tool can assist you in making the best choice. Our underfloor heating selector walks you through a simple four-step process to determine the best underfloor heating system for your specific application, as well as a list of all the products you'll need to complete the job, so you can rest assured that you'll have everything you need for installation. If you have any requirements that aren't covered by the tool, please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss them.

It is advised that the floor heating be installed over the waterproofing to ensure a completely watertight substrate. An in screed system can be installed before the waterproofing in a screed application where the waterproofing is on top of the screed.

The electrician will need to connect mains electricity to the thermostat site before roughing in for our underfloor heating and controller. The electrician will next run two 20mm conduits from the thermostat position to the floor, one for the Underfloor Heating Cold Tail and the other for the Floor Sensor. Please see our Conduit Requirements pdf for more information and a graphic representation.
