Karndean Designflooring is suitable for installing over under-floor heating systems, providing they have been insulated so that the surface temperature does not exceed 27°C (80°F).

Installing Karndean Designflooring over underfloor heating

Designflooring is warmer and softer underfoot than stone and ceramic tiles so is a popular choice for bathrooms, kitchens and conservatories.

However, Karndean's floors can be laid over under-floor heating systems for extra warmth. When visiting your local retailer, do remember to mention under-floor heating when selecting your floor.

If you are arranging for installation of under-floor heating or have an existing system, we recommend making a note of the manufacturer and model. Your Karndean installer will need to ensure that your heating system is compatible with our flooring.

We provide full guidance to our flooring installers about sub floor and adhesive preparation when laying Karndean floors over under-floor heating systems.
