Floor Heating Systems

HeatShield Panels are the optimum solution for heating under laminate and engineered wood flooring. With HeatShield Panels there's no need to embed the heat cables in a mud base. Simply lay the insulation panels on the existing floor, press the heating cable into the pre-designated grooves provided and lay the wooden laminate floor directly on top. Then connect the thermostat and turn on the heat.

The HeatShield floor heating insulation panels consist of a ½-inch thick polystyrene insulation panel covered with thin, specially profiled aluminum. The panels maximize downward insulation and upward heat distribution to reduce energy consumption.

Radiant Heat for Engineered Hardwood Floors

HeatShield floor heating insulation panels feature lightweight aluminum insulation panels that provide superior heat distribution and efficiency. The panels create a barrier between the subfloor and the new floor surface to eliminate energy loss and reflect the heat directly up into the room where you can enjoy it.

Radiant Floor Heating for Laminate Surfaces

HeatShield Panels provide the ideal, easy-to-install solution for heated floors under laminate surfaces. The design is so efficient that you typically may run your floor heating system for shorter periods of time, which translates into an additional cost savings for you.

Advanced Radiant Floor Heating Design

The aluminum HeatShield Panels conveniently snap together across the length of the floor. The panels have pre-cut grooves for the heat cable, ensuring accurate spacing and allowing you to use the industry's most trusted heat cables (ComfortTile) without the use of mortar and thinset. Simply lay the insulation panels down and snap them together, using small plastic locking keys that are provided with the system. Place the heating cable in the grooves provided and then install your new flooring. For custom shaped rooms, the HeatShield Panel can easily be cut with a standard table saw or jig saw.

A key benefit of HeatShield Panels is that insulation is built into the aluminum plates/panels, maximizing heat distribution and efficiency. Because the panels act as insulation as well as a reflective heat source, the efficient system serves as a giant radiator, radiating heat evenly across the room. HeatShield floor heating systems mark a dramatic improvement over traditional radiant heated floor methods by not allowing heat to escape down into the subfloor.
