Home Underfloor Heating Underlaminate Heating

Underfloor heating for wood laminate

For warmth you can count on. Warmup heating systems provides heating for all floor surfaces in South Africa. Since 1984, Warmup has provided safe, comfortable and economical heating to thousands of satisfied customers throughout South Africa. Consider these benefits of our new improved heating system.


Warmup underlaminate heaters are safety tested and are completely waterproof. It is encased in a tough "earth shield" which withstands heavy traffic and eliminates the risk of electric shock.

Discreetly hidden from view, this wafer-thin heater lies hidden between the laminate and underlay. There are no visible elements or radiators. No summertime storage problems.

Warmup components have the benefit of over 30 years of European technology for applications that demand high flexibility, continuous operation at high temperatures and long working life.

Laminate Type
Under most modern laminate locking systems. It is important to check the appropriate literature supplied by the laminate manufacturer prior to installation of the laminate you have selected. Minimum specifications: HDF-core (High-density fibre) laminate flooring that has a density of at least 850kg/m3, is between 7 and 12mm thick, has a join strength of at least 600kg per linear meter and a locking system that can be refitted several times if neccessary.

Quickly installed under new or existing laminates by trained laminate fitter.

This is not underfloor heating, and is effective within 30 minutes of switch-on. You heat the area you need, when you need it. To give you an idea of the economy of Warmup, a ULS300 (140 x 200cm) underlaminate heater uses less power than three 100 watt light bulbs.

A 5 year factory-backed warranty is provided. Warranty forms are issued with each heater.
