How many cables can I attach per thermostat?

You can attach multiple Laticrete Strata Heat cables without exceeding 15amps. For cases in which may exceed 15amp a relay must be used. Please contact an electrician for all electrical connections questions and issues.

Just double checking...heating 27sqft, using 2 peg spacing 133ft wire is correct...

Yes this is correct. 133 Linear feet of Strataheat cable will cover 27sq ft on a 2 peg strataheat mat

I'm a contractor, I have installed your heating wires on many jobs... Mostly bathrooms which are typically under 100 Sq ft. I recently installed this product on a larger concrete floor.. Roughly 220 Sq ft. The floor has been "live" for 48 hours now, and has yet to reach 60 degrees? Any ideas?

If the heat cord rows are 3 pegs apart, will this meet Laticrete’s warranty and is this an effective way to use this product?
