        • Lay your ribbon underfloor heating mats on top of the insulation
        • Use the double sided tape to stick the heating elements  to the insulation
        • Where required use high adhesive tape to ensure the heating mats are secured
        • Route the cold leads (live & neutral) to a junction box just above skirting board level (see electrical connections in manual)
        • Check the resistance of the heating elements matches with the resistance chart in the installation manual
        • Connect the cold leads using our 5 lever quick connectors
        • Lay your laminate floor directly over the top of the heating mats
