Laticrete Strata Heat 161 Sq Ft. Mat

New and improved version! Strata_Heat Mat takes the comfort of floor heating wire with the advantages of a uncoupling membrane together makes a well laid floor heating system that any homeowner will love! Strata_Heat will provide faster drying of the mortar, allowing for shorter time to grout. Just like our other uncoupling membranes it is specifically designed for use with both modified and unmodified mortars


  • Improved bond strength compared to the older 150 sq ft roll
  • Improved point load capacity and overall durability
  • Use Strata_Heat wire, mat and thermostats to provide luxury and comfort in your home
  • Different variations of spacing is offered to give you the level of comfort and coverage you want
  • Using Strata_Heat Mat during installation will create a mechanical bond between the mat and adhesive mortar which allows the mortar to cure faster providing a stronger bond of tile for faster time to grout
  • Mat provides vapor management
  • Uncoupling membrane takes away the stress from the tile installation which eliminates substrate cracks of up to 1/8"
  • When laying mat the installer will be able to see mortar coverage underneath the mat without having to move it
  • The mat makes tile installation clear and precise with an easily visible surface to lay chalk or other preferred tile setting accessories

Best Heated floor mat!

by Hails Home Improvements -

This lays flat and even with no lifting or curling like their orange competitor. Use gray thinset under for an easy way to SEE your coverage through the strata mat. Laticretes heated floor system is superior to the other guys in every way with the exception of being waterproof. Small price to pay to be able to use modified thinset with this. I'll never use Ditra Heat again. That stuff has always been a pain.
