Basic Installation Method

  1. Prepare sub-floor by removing all dust and debris.
  2. Fix Palziv insulation to the sub-floor using a double sided tape or glue spray. Ensure that the whole surface is covered.
  3. Once the insulation is fixed, unroll and correctly position the Rayoflex Mats.

  4. Every time the mat is cut and turned, close the gap between the mat and cover the cable with the foil tape provided.
  5. Cut a small groove into the insulation so the cold cable connectors lay flush and run them back to the thermostat.
  6. Lay the thermostat floor sensor in the conduit and place between mat turns.
  7. Re-test the mats to ensure none have been damaged during installation.
  8. With the system turned off, either lay the wood flooring or the carpet underlay and carpet.
