Cold Feet Need Under Tile Heating
Warming Winter Toes
Winter is on its way. Do you shiver slightly at the thought?
Do you leap from shower to bathroom mat in fear of frozen shock?
Do you avoid doing laundry, because it’s just that little bit too chilly in there?
Have you ever considered showering in socks?
It’s time for Under Tile Heating.
No More Arctic Floor Expeditions
Tiles and polished concrete are cold on the feet. This is great in the summer, but not so great in the winter. The grim permafrost of winter bathrooms means no matter how hard you crank a heat lamp or wall heater; the floor remains a solid block of ice.
A More Efficient Way to Winter
A heat lamp or wall heater is a long way from the floor. It’s all the way up there, desperately throwing heat energy down. You end up with slightly dryer shoulders and a chill seeping through the bathroom mat. This old way is not really logical, efficient or even comfortable.
Under Tile Heating Changes Everything
With Under Tile Heating, the bathroom floor becomes the heater. A network of Under Tile elements evenly distribute heat smoothly into your tiles. You stand directly on the source of warmth. Goodbye winter ice sprint, hello to a bathroom experience you can enjoy in winter.
room-wide, full-body-felt ambience, that all begins with toasty warm feet.
This is your new warm foundation.

No Dusty Drafts and Circulation Benefits
Allergy sufferers also rejoice. Warm-foot radiance does not mean blasting dust filled air into your space and is fantastic for blood circulation. A warm floor in the bathroom translates to even blood circulation as blood vessels can relax and not constrict to hold in warmth.
