10 m² MAGNUM® Underfloor Heating Foil 60 cm x 16.8 m (1200 W)

See parts included Technical specification

Wood, parquet and laminate are all sustainable and attractive products that are increasingly used. The demand for a heating system for these floors has lead to the design of new, technologically high quality product. MAGNUM now offers a solution for these "dry" floors. The MAGNUM Electric Heating Foil 10 m² 60 cm x 16.8 m can be applied directly underneath wood, parquet or laminates. The extremely thin floor warming system (only 3 mm!) is controlled via a digital clock thermostat with a floor sensor. This ensures very even warming up. The floor temperature be limited to a specific maximum temperature by way of a floor sensor and thermostat.

The advanced thermostat takes account of the required warming up period, so that your floor is always at the right temperature when you want it. The foil should be put on top of a 6 mm thin polystyrene insulation plate (MAGNUM Isofoam). This insulation plate ensures extra heat insulation and also has noise dampening properties.

MAGNUM Foil is very simply made to measure. Safe, comfortable and easy to use: MAGNUM Foil also provides a comfortable living and working climate on dry floors!

4. Important points of interest:

WARNING: The MAGNUM heating foil requires a 230V supply and the installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician. The electrical installation should be carried out in accordance with the national regulations.
The rating of the heating foil must comply with the rating of the thermostat, the circuit breaker and if needed the contactor. Good wiring practice must be observed. Installation must comply with current building and wiring regulations.Connection cables must not come in contact with the heating foil. The heating foil must be installed together with a Residual Current Device (RCD) with a maximum breaking current of 30mA.

5. Installation Planning:

Before installing the heating foil, make a sketch or drawing of the installation.

  • Plan where the thermostat should be placed. The thermostat should not be placed in direct sunlight. It must be convenient for the user and near to the electrical supply, at a height of 1.2 m approx.
  • Plan where the wiring and the connection to the electrical supply should be placed.
  • Plan the layout for each heating foil panel. The heating foil must be placed side by side with no gaps. The heating foil must cover as much floor area as possible.

6. Installation procedure:

  1. Make sure the floor is clean and free from dust. (Pic. 1)
  2. Cut a track in the wall and the floor for the thermostat & floor sensor, make a smooth bend at floor level for the sensor conduit. The track for the conduit must be 50cm from the wall (Pic. 3).
  3. Push the floor sensor into the conduit. The tip should be visible at the end of the conduit, but it may not stick out. Place the sensor in the middle of two rows of heating foil.
  4. Cover the end of the conduit with the small grey cap, which is supplied with the system.
  5. Install the flexible conduit with a smooth bend at the floor level.
  6. Check the surface of the floor. To prevent damage it is important that the surface is flat and clean. The maximum height difference that is permitted is +/- 1 mm.
  7. If the floor is uneven then it is highly recommended that the floor is levelled using a suitable self levelling compound.
  8. Fill up the track in the wall & floor with suitable filler.
  9. Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free from grease.
  10. Lay the MAGNUM Isofoam floor insulation, it must cover the whole surface (Pic. 2).
  11. Tape all joints to prevent any movement between the panels. Leave a 30 mm gap for cables along the edge where the connections will be made. Make sure that the surface is clean and that no sharp objects can come into contact with or drop down onto the heating foil during the installation. Plan your work in a way that you don’t have to step directly on the heating foil.
  12. Roll out the heating foil along the edge of the room. The copper can face either up or down. Make sure that the heating film is completely flat without any creases.
  13. Cut the foil only along the perforation.
  14. Cover the blind copper ends with a 50 x 50 mm PVC tape.
  15. Roll out the heating foil parallel to the first panel, they must not overlap.
  16. Tape the foils to the insulation to avoid movements during the floor installation and service.

7. Connect the wires

  1. Once the total floor surface is covered with the heating foil, the wires can be connected. On the side where no connections are made, tape all the copper conductors with pieces of PVC tape (Pic. 13). Protect the heating foil with left over MAGNUM Isofoam PS insulation while you are working with connections.
  2. To protect the crimp connection:
  3. Make a 3x6 cm cut-out in the Isofoam just below the connection point (Pic. 6). Put a piece of PVC tape on the backside of the PS insulation. The crimp connection must not protrude above the surface of the PS Insulation to guarantee a good contact between the heating foil and the (wooden) floor.
  4. Cut off 6mm of PVC insulation at the end of the cable, if only one cable is connected, fold the cable to fit into the connector crimp (Pic. 7).
  5. Connect the cables to the connector crimps:
  6. Tighten the connector by using the crimp tool (Pic. 8). Attention: In case of a single connection cable (first connection), always fold the cable double! Always tighten on both sides (on top and under) the wires to the connector (Pic. 9). Cables must be long enough and free to move and not be subjected to mechanical loads.
  7. To connect the crimp to the heating foil:
  8. Make sure that the crimp connection is correctly set, max gap 1.3mm. Place the crimp over the copper band on the heating film. Tighten the crimp by hand (Pic.10). Then tighten the crimp with the crimp tool in a 45 degree angle from both sides (Pic. 11 and 12).
  9. Connect the heating foils in parallel with the double insulated cable.
  10. To insulate the crimp connection:
  11. Cut out 2 pieces of 50x50mm PVC tape. Place it on both sides of the crimp connection. The tape must end at least 5mm from the edge of the crimp (Pic. 14).

8. Testing the installation.

  1. All heating foils must be connected during the test.
  2. Measure the overall resistance for the heating foils and note this in the protocol under Measured resistance before covering the floor
  3. Calculate the actual power with formula: Actual power=52900/Measured resistance ; note in under: Actual power
  4. Measure the total length of the heating film and calculate the Total Rate Power with the formula: Total Rate Power = total length x rated in W/m (printed on the heating foil) Note that under: Total Rated Power
  5. Make a sketch or take a photo for documentation of the installation on the middle page.

9. Cover the Microfoil:

  • Cover the microfoil with age resistant PE foil with a minimum thickness of 0.2 mm. Film must overlap 200 mm if it is necessary to use several sheets to cover the surface (Pic. 15).
  • Install the laminate flooring according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Please work with light footwear. Protect the heating foil, cables and connections with some spare Magnum Isofoam PS insulation (Pic. 16 and 17).
  • Measure the overall resistance of the heating foils and note it in the protocol under: Measured resistance when floor covering is installed. This protocol should be filled in completely. In case of a technical problem, the manufacturer will ask for this protocolcard. Connect the thermostat according to the instructions in the thermostat manual. The thermostat must be limited to a maximum floor temperature of 28 degrees Celsius.

10. Connecting Intelligent-Control

Before installation or de-installation always turn off the electricity in the meter cupboard. Installation must be done by an approved electrician in accordance with the current regulations. The MAGNUM Intelligent-Control has an intelligent guide function which guides the user through the program and is very friendly in use. However study the manual very well before installation and keep it with the other guarantee papers.

10.1 Notes for installer:

Check if the power is turned off. Take off the display frame by pushing with a non sharp tool (for example a ballpoint) in the square whole on the underside of the thermostat frame. The display frame and cover frame can then be taken off.

10.2 Connection schedule:

  • Terminals 1 and 4 are used for the connection cables of the heating foil.
  • Terminals 2 (Neutral) and 3 (Live) are used for the power supply.
  • Terminal 5 is only in use in case of an external central control system
  • Terminal 6 is used for the earth of the electrical power.
  • Terminals 7 and 8 are used for connecting the sensor.

10.3 Fix to Back box:

The back box must be at least 35mm deep. Position the thermostat and fix it to the back box with 2 screws. Replace the cover frame and push the display frame back.

10.4 Setting the Intelligent-Control:

Attention: After switching the power on for the first time, it will take 5 minutes until the first question appears on the screen. This is due to the internal back up battery charging. Follow the start-up wizard menu carefully. For the settings of the thermostat we advise you to follow the instructions in the thermostat manual.

The thermostat needs to be set at a maximum temperature at 28 degrees Celsius.

No reviews
Are your underfloor heating mats secondary or primary output?

The issue is not the underfloor heating, and more the insulation in the property. The mats are 150w/m2 (required for VDE approval) and is reliant on suitable insulation within the property. Insulation beneath the ufh, to ensure maximum heat goes into the room, and then insulation within the room, to ensure the heat remains in the room. In new properties, there is no issue, due to insulation standards being extremely high. In older properties, where insulation is lacking, is where we forsee an issue. If insulation is up to scratch, there should not be a problem. If the customer is concerned, or want to ensure a suitable output, a heat loss calculation must be carried out.

If you have any other questions I will forward them to the manufacturer and then reply to you.

Can electric underfloor heating be used on this product?

Dear Customer,

I confirm that our shower trays are suitable with underfloor heating if it's fitted on top of them.

They are based on XPS foam which is great insulator, therefore if UFH was installed under them, it would provide only limited warmth. Floor on top of the tray would not be as warm as on the rest of the room.

Please notice that the tray has 15 mm lip and that's the space you have to accomodate your tiles, UFH and tile adhesive. You should check how thick are your tiles and UFH if together are less than 15 mm it should be fine to be used on our tray.

Kind regards

David 020 7193 0953

Do you sell the tanking liquid separately?

Hello,

Yes, tanking liquid is available separately, however it's less cost efficient. Waterproofing kit is available at comparable price and contains materials that you will probably need to use anyway.

There's special category in our store: Tanking liquid.

I am happy to assist if you have any further questions.

Kin regards

David 020 7193 0953


Are these suitable for underfloor heating?

Hello,

Yes, I can confirm that these trays are suitable with Underfloor heating.

They are based on good insulator - XPS - therefore your UFH should be installed on top of the tray, under the tiles. If it was installed under the tray, it would only have a very limited effect.

Please notice that there is a limited space from the shower tray surface to the upper grate edge. In case of this tray it is 20 mm you have to accomodate your underfloor heating, tile adhesive and tiles.

I am happy to assist if you have any questions.

Kind regards

David 020 7193 0953

I've just purchased a 3.5 m underfloor mat and found its too small, can I exchange for a 5 m mat and pay the extra

Dear Heather,

The best way to solve that would be to order a new UFH Mat here: MAGNUM® Underfloor Heating mat 5 m² 50 cm x 10 m, and send the mat that is too small to us:

Wetrooms Design Ltd
Unit 12C, Albion Drive, Thurnscoe
Rotherham, S63 0BA

we will refund its cost in full as soon as it's back with us.

Please notice that you can keep thermostat, but all the other parts need to be supplied back to us (we will supply them with a new mat as well).

Kind regards
