Typically timber floors and in-floor heating do not mix. That applies to solid timber and ply based engineered boards. But HEATWOOD is different, it has a composite stone base, making it a great conductor of heat but also providing the appropriate stability to the floor. HEATWOOD has an excellent HEAT CONDUCTIVITY rating and a very low R value of 1.8. In layman’s terms, HEATWOOD is the most efficient timber flooring product in terms of transfer of heat from substrate through the floor. More importantly, HEATWOOD is designed so that the heat does not destabilise the timber floor, unlike ply based and solid timber floors.
Dimensions are 16mm thick, with 14mm of composite stone to ensure the most efficient and effective heat transfer without any destabilisation of the timber floor.
When it comes to putting timber on heat, the answer is typically no. Unless of course, the timber floor has a composite stone substrate. If you are thinking heated floor, then think HEATWOOD.
