Warmup® DCM-PRO System is the fastest way to install a heated decoupling system in all areas of the home; in fact, 40% faster than standard underfloor heating membranes. The patent pending self-adhesive underside of the mat acts as a self-healing decoupling layer and eliminates the need for an adhesive layer, reducing both time and costs.
The DCM-PRO System suits all floor types and protects the floor finish from seasonal changes that may cause cracks in the floor finish. The layer contracts and expands to deal with seasonal changes, preventing damage from occurring to the floor coverings due to the gaps and cracks in the subfloor.
It is recommended that the DCM-PRO system is installed on top of thermally insulated tile backer board. This provides a flat surface that is insulated against heat loss: Thermal Insulation Tile Backer Board
The DCM-PRO mat sticks directly on the insulation board, with no extra adhesive required. Based on the heat output required, the cable is laid and spaced out in the castellation’s accordingly. The clear sizing based on the castellation’s of the mat provides quick and easy planning for installation, 2m2 of cable fits exactly 2m2 of mat etc. Sizing can be adjusted to increase or decrease coverage and power (see Spacing Guide below) . The DCM-PRO cable clips into the castellation’s of the DCM-PRO mat, no tools are required when installing the cable into the mat.
As soon as the mat is fitted, the cable is installed and cable resistance checked, tiling or self-levelling can be started. The DCM-PRO mat can be covered with flexible adhesive (for use with tiles) or self-levelling compound, allowing it to heat and protect any floor covering material that is certified for use with underfloor heating. This includes tiles, engineered wood, vinyl and carpet providing a constant output of 150wm2.
