There's a common misconception that traditional stone flooring can be cold and unwelcoming. Fortunately, a solution is at hand in the shape of underfloor heating. When combined with a heating system such as Devimat underfloor heating, there's no need to get cold feet about stone floors, as your stone tiles will be toasty-warm - and, most importantly, safe to boot.
The tone and colour of stone tiles are often naturally warm and inviting to begin with, and as natural stone is a great conductor of heat, they are excellent candidates for underfloor heating. By installing stone flooring with underfloor heating, you not only banish the issue of cold flooring underfoot, but underfloor heating is also a very easy system to install and does not take up precious wall space as a radiator would, making it a perfect solution for small spaces such as conservatories.
Safety should be of paramount importance to any homeowner or stone flooring installer, and that's why at The Stone Gallery we stock DEVI products, which are the only underfloor heating products to comply with the new advanced BEAB Approved standard, having a maximum heating output of 100w per square metre.
It is also important, and it will be compulsory, to have a thermostat with a floor sensor installed, to ensure that the maximum temperature of the floor cannot exceed 35°C. This means that safety levels will be at their highest and DEVI products eliminate the possibility of burns or fires which can be caused by other underfloor heating products without these safety measures in place.
As DEVI products are produced for use in markets throughout the world, including the rest of Europe and the USA, they are of the very highest level in terms of safety standards and meet the new advanced BEAB approval.
Remember that The Stone Gallery will be able to supply you with both stone tiles and Devimat underfloor heating for stone flooring. Experts are on hand to advise about both your natural stone requirements and safety regarding underfloor heating.
