Cutting installation time by up to 70%, boasting an extremely low assembly height (5.5mm) and providing one unique underfloor heating system all available from a market leading innovative manufacturer - Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E has arrived!
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E leaves other conventional systems out in the cold as the perfect all-in-one integrated solution for use under tiles and natural stone flooring.
Ideal for refurbishment and renovation projects thanks to its uncoupling and crack-bridging properties, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E is unlike anything else available due to its loose heating cables which are fixed down to the uncoupling mat free of tape as a result of its unique studded design. Offering optimum freedom for creating concentrated heating zones, as well as providing uniform spacing without the need for measuring and marking, the new system will dramatically cut installation time by up to 70%.
Time-saving benefits include:
- Easy press to lay cable – no tape or glue
- No self-levelling layer or primer laying – time saved on application
- Loose heating cable - greater flexibility
- Uniform spacing of every three studs – no measurements
- Integrated and balanced packages - all from one trusted manufacturer
- Can be tiled immediately – no waiting time
Its distinct studded look and loose cabling make it an installer’s dream system, providing flexibility in size and layout and extensive time saving benefits. Its low assembly height is also ideally suited for renovation projects and it’s even suitable for installation over problematic substrates. The end result is an underfloor heating system that really does tick all the boxes whether you’re the specifier, installer or the homeowner.”
Its components may be orange in colour but Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is definitely green by nature thanks to the distinctive environmental benefits this perfect underfloor heating system possesses.
The unique design of this advanced system from Schlüter-Systems requires a 30% thinner screed, which helps distribute heat faster and with evenness. Its low supply temperature of approximately 30°C, compared to the more conventional 50°C or the 70-90°C in some radiator systems, means Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is extremely effective both with conventional heat generation methods and regenerative energy sources such as heat pumps or solar panels. Along with night control settings this not only protects the environment even more by saving energy, but also reduces heating bills for the end user.
From a construction perspective Schluter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is quick to install due to less material being used than in other systems; highly durable, with loads in private and commercial buildings up to 5kN/m2; and has proven suitability, with damage free practical application for several years as certified by a number of independent institutes.

It´s a Gem of a System for Moonstone
The revolutionary, award-winning underfloor heating system Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM was the natural choice for one of the UK’s greenest self-build projects.
John Croft has installed Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM under all 1,470 square metres of flooring at his luxury eco-house in the Cotswolds. And to uncouple the Jerusalem Gold stone tiles from the Cemex Supaflo anhydrite screed, the Schlüter®-DITRA uncoupling membrane was specified.
Known as The Moonstone Project, the unique multi-level six-bedroom house, which includes an indoor swimming pool, gym, cinema and games room, is a model of eco-efficiency, which is why the energy saving aspects of Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM were so important. And as the system incorporates the uncoupling membrane and a modular screed, it also protects the stone tiles.
Many ceramic and stone tile installers have become wary of fixing over heated screeds because of problems experienced in the past with tiles cracking, splitting and debonding. This is caused by the screed and tiles expanding and contracting at different rates due to their different heat expansion co-efficients during temperature changes. However, Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is an energy-efficient and quick-reacting modular assembly system which overcomes this long-standing problem with the formation of micro-fine cracks that eliminate stress build-up due to shrinkage during the curing of the screed.
As soon as the screed can be walked on, the Schlüter®-DITRA uncoupling membrane is bonded to it, and the stone or ceramic covering is then installed onto the membrane.
And because the whole assembly has a low construction height, the screed mass to be heated is comparatively small, meaning the radiant heated floor is easily regulated and can be operated with low supply temperatures, giving reduced fuel costs. A thin layer of conventional screed – anhydrite, in the case of The Moonstone Project -- covers the studs and pipes by a minimum of 8mm and up to a maximum of 25mm, depending on the type of installation, so in some cases just five degrees is lost between the heat pipe and the surface.
All of which means that Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM was the absolute right specification for Moonstone. Because 80% of the house’s energy is generated from flat plate solar collectors, with the remainder being generated by a ground source heat pump, the thin screed layer and the resulting lower temperatures needed to heat it, mean the heat pump works more efficiently than with conventional underfloor heating systems. And with 1,470 square metres of flooring to heat, John said it was essential that the temperature is easy to regulate. And there was an added bonus for the heating contractors, who found the entire system quick and simple to install.
Although early architectural work on the house was handled by an architect, John completed the designs himself, and liaised regularly with Schlüter-Systems Ltd regarding the specification for the underfloor heating.
The house in The Moonstone Project has a U value of 0.07, giving it a passivhaus rating. This means that in theory, the building is so well insulated that the heat given off by the people inside would be enough to heat it. The house has, on average, around 0.5 metres of insulation incorporated within its walls, floors and roof.
The stone tiles were supplied by Indigenous Tiles, of Burford, Oxfordshire. They have been used internally throughout the whole house, and on three exterior balconies.

Further enriching its drain portfolio, Schlüter-Systems showcased three new grate designs at Cersaie 2017, available soon across both its point and linear drains.
With so many options available in the way of tiles, Schlüter recognises that drains are an increasingly important element in creating a cohesive whole for a wetroom. The new designs for Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN and Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE —Floral, Curve and Pure—have been developed with current bathroom trends in mind, yet are versatile and neutral enough to stand the test of time.
- Floral: A geometric design with just the right amount of softness, Floral’s uniform pattern makes it equally suitable for wetrooms with a structured industrial or softly textured theme
- Curve: The simple, playful accents of the Curve design translate into grates that are the perfect complement to all manner of trends—from the organic feel of a natural retreat to the clean-cut lines of a reduced geometric wetroom
- Pure: Crisp and minimalist, Pure is a no-fuss, no-frills design that is great to have at hand for its timeless looks
The new grate designs will be available in Schlüter’s ever-popular brushed stainless steel finish. In addition, all of the new grate designs come equipped with a contour frame, making for easy cleaning and a sharp, sleek aesthetic. The linear variants will be available from late October and point variants from late November.
