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 15 m² 60 cm x 25 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!

This stylish, colourful and refined digital clock thermostat has been specially designed for electric heating systems. The MAGNUM X-treme Control is supplied with every MAGNUM floor heating set (Mat,Cable and Foil types), including external floor sensor, a built-in air sensor and three different frames that suit most brands of switching equipment. The MAGNUM X-treme Control is simple and intuitive to operate using touch sensitive buttons under the display. The new chameleon function is simple to adapt to the colour of your interior. The stylish screensaver shows the time, temperature and current mode without touching the thermostat. The MAGNUM X-treme Control has a new help function that appears after 10 seconds in the menu with a complete description of the setting in question. The MAGNUM X-treme Control also has a wooden floor function whereby the temperature is limited to 28°C. This makes the MAGNUM X-treme Control the idea and safe solution for every electric heating system.
In some situations the digital regulation is not required and so the preference is for a simple on/off operation. Specifically industrial applications where the heating must remain on at all times. Therefore MAGNUM has designed the Standard Control: a simple on/off thermostat with temperature regulation that is clearly easy to operate.
MAGNUM Isofoam at only six millimetres is a very thin floor insulation manufactured entirely from recycled materials. The structure of MAGNUM Isofoam is formed from small enclosed cells that have excellent insulation properties. The special structure ensures that no heat is lead underneath, so that all the heat generated by the MAGNUM Foil heads for the surface of the floor.
MAGNUM Isofoam 6 m² is supplied as 10 plates 120 x 50 cm x 6 mm.
|Temperature resistance||- 30 to+70 °C|

The Magnum Microfoil is manufactured from high quality, durable materials. To guarantee that your product functions optimally there are a few points of attention which are described in the Installation Instructions. We can only offer you the full guarantee if the Microfoil is correctly installed in accordance with the Installation Instructions. Carefully read the instructions prior to installation, do not forget the yellow centre page when doing so, and ensure that you have the correct tools and materials. The electrical installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician in accordance with IEE Regulations.
Please read the instructions carefully before starting installation!
Installation must be carried out by an approved fully qualified electrician. Only installation fitted in accordance with this manual will give you 10 years guarantee on the electro technical use of the Microfoil and 2 years on the thermostat and the floor sensor.
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.
Before installing the heating foil, make a sketch or drawing of the installation.
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.
To protect the crimp connection:
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.
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).
Connect the cables to the connector crimps:
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.
To connect the crimp to the heating foil:
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).
Connect the heating foils in parallel with the double insulated cable.
To insulate the crimp connection:
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
