WarmlyYours kits combine shower waterproofing and floor heating
WarmlyYours launched combined shower waterproofing and floor heating kits for tile showers. In addition to providing a complete floor heating system (which is comprised of a TempZone Shower Floor Heating Mat, an nSpire Touch programmable thermostat, and a Circuit Check electrical continuity alarm for installation), a complete kit will provide all of the traditional components of a shower waterproofing system including: a high-density foam shower pan with integrated slope, a multi-piece drain assembly with easy-to-clean hair trap, shower curb/s, a drain grate cover, and various pieces and rolls of waterproofing membrane.
The launch of these kits was a measured effort to address what Julia Billen, the owner and president of WarmlyYours, saw as an unmet need in the marketplace.
“A huge number of people are installing floor heating with their waterproofing systems because they want their tile shower to feel as good as it looks,” Billen says. “However, there hasn’t been an easy way to pair electric floor heating with these pre-sized shower waterproofing kits—until now.”
The kits are available in several variants based on the size and drain orientation: 32” x 60” with a centered drain, 32” x 60” with an offset drain, and 48” x 48” with a centered drain. Other customizable options include whether or not to include a floor heating system, whether the drain assembly’s flange is in PVC or ABS material (to ensure a proper connection to existing plumbing), and a choice of 25 different drain grate covers.
The company highlights a few key features as:
· An easy-to-clean integrated hair trap in the drain assembly;
· A stronger drain flange (rated at 780 PSI);
· A wide variety of high quality drain grate covers; and
· A denser shower pan (3.5 lb/ft³) which allows for the installation of a greater range of tile types, including glass tile.
