It doesn’t need it!
Standard UFH is achieved with a cable (or water pipe) embedded into a concrete screed. This means that a large percentage of heat generated is used in heating the concrete – no the room! This results in higher power consumption; much slower reaction to thermostatic control and makes maintenance extremely difficult (if not impossible).
Because the AHT Amorphous Metal ribbon operates at much lower temperatures over a larger area, this allows the system to be installed below the floorcovering but without the requirement for a screed (a considerable cost saving). This means you get a more efficient and more responsive system that heats up in minutes – not hours!
