One day, a customer walked into Alexander Carpet & Tile, in Inglewood California and expressed the desire to add electric floor heating to his engineered wood floors. Eventually after weighing out all the options, they agreed to install Infrafloor’s unique Infrafloor Film product. It is a product Uniquely designed specifically for installation under floating wood and laminate floors, and it worked perfectly for this application. Heated floor systems typically require cement or mortar, however, this unique warm floor system can be laid down over a pad, and after a vapor barrier is installed, you are ready to lay down your floating floor. Rich Alexander said, “Our client desired all of the bells and whistles and wanted to go with a premium product, so we decided on yours. It’s a nice system, and I love how the mats were all able to connect at one location (junction box).” Alexander Carpet & Tile are locally owned and operated, full service flooring company. They can work in carpet, wood, laminates and all sorts of tiles. Also, with each flooring surface, they are able to add an in floor heating system from Infrafloor. When people think of the need for warm tiles, or floor heating systems, typically their mind does not race to sunny California. “With the arid climates, mountainous areas and luxury homes, California is one of the hot spots for electric underfloor heating,” declared Vice President of Sales Steve Kaempf. “Alexander Carpet and Tile and Infrafloor will be bringing warm floors to the Inglewood area for many years to come!”
Infrafloor is now offering a wonderful new underlayment for heated floor projects that is incredibly versatile and handy for almost any type of flooring insulation. It is ideal for installation below radiant floor heat for many reasons.
First, with an R value of 1.5, it insulates cold subfloors, allowing the electric floor heating to rise up quicker for fast heat up times. Second, it is up to 25 times lighter than the ¼ backerboard that you might be thinking about using as a part of the subfloor for underfloor heating. Third, it has excellent acoustical and crack suppression, keeping things quiet and tight. Fourth, it comes in easily manageable sheets (2’ X 4’), which all lay very flat, being about 3/16” thick. Fifth, the unique underlayment does not allow for rot, mold, mildew or moisture, which supports the “floor heating for a lifetime” approach that we have at Infrafloor. It is also very stable through changes of temperature, which is an obvious key as cold tiles or laminates are converted to heated floors with the radiant floor heating. It also does not change after repeated impact loads and has an ability to absorb high energy impacts. Lastly, it is also an environmentally friendly product, being free of all VOCs.
In terms of the versatility, Cerazorb ® can be installed under tile, stone or marble, by simply bonding Cerazorb ® to the subfloor with a latex-modified thin-set mortar. Then you can install the heated floors on top of the Cerazorb ® with a thin-set mortar and set your tile or stone. You can also install Cerazorb ® under floating laminate or woods very easily, by floating two layers of the Cerazorb ® (staggering the seams), taping the seams of the Cerazorb ®, and then installing the recommended floor warming system for your application. Finally, you can install your floating floor.
Cerazorb ® is a perfect complement to any heated floors project.
