Norfolk, Neb.—MP Global Products introduces QuietWarmth Film, a gentle radiant heat system designed specifically for floating wood and laminate floors that installs easily over a subfloor or acoustic underlayment. The roll-out line voltage system features gradual supplemental warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film, using just 6 watts per square foot to accomplish the same outcome as wire products that expend 12 watts per square foot, conforming to warranty requirements of many floating floors.
Lightweight and sporting a zero carbon footprint and not requiring any maintenance, QuietWarmth Film is also perfect for floating tile systems such as SnapStone, Avaire and Eclipse brands. For floating floor applications, there is no easier to install or more affordable way to heat your floor.
For electric radiant heat under ceramic and porcelain tile flooring, MP Global Products offers QuietWarmth Fiber electric radiant heat underlayment. Manufactured from a minimum 77% recycled textile fibers and carrying SCS Indoor Advantage Gold certification, which requires the highest level of indoor performance for clean air, it is clean, quiet, and hypoallergenic.
QuietWarmth Fiber radiant heat underlayment features insulating qualities that add an R-value of 0.50 to the floor assembly that will keep floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. QuietWarmth Fiber’s strong acoustic properties dampen ambient sound in the room it’s installed in and minimize impact and airborne sound from traveling to the room below.
Both the QuietWarmth Film and QuietWarmth Fiber are available in four convenient rollout pad sizes (3 x 5, 3 x 10, 1.5 x 5 and 1.5 x 10-ft.). Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.
