The ECOFILM heating foil is a singular product using state of the art technology, intended primarily for heating large indoor surfaces, either in the floor or the ceiling structure. Thanks to its ultrathin profile (0.4 mm) the original construction height is hardly affected. This silent, unobtrusive and dry-laid heating system is highly reliable and has a long life span.
The heating film is composed of laminated polyester films with a graphite coating and supply copper strips.
Grafite strips act as independant resitances connected in parallel. This structure provides the possibility to cut the film roll at the desired length to fit perfectly the available space.
The ECOFILM radiant heating foil is the perfect solution for an economical heating beneath laminated and wooden floor. It provides all the advantages of underfloor heating with a dry-laid system, easy and fast to install.

The heating film can also be installed under PVC floor or carpet (following the manufacturer recommendation) with the use of the extra underlays Heat pack to provide the necessary rigidity to the system:

The heating film is manufactured as rolls from 30 cm to 1 m width to fit any type of room, and with a surface output from 60 to 300W/m2 to cover all the heat demand range from low energy houses to churches.
The material is available in different formats:
- Film rolls from a few meters to 100 m and connection accessories apart..
- Strip of films cut and connected at specific length according to a given project
- Do-it-yourself kit for rooms from 10 to 30 m2 that includes the heating film, connection components and the thermostat.
Another widespread use of heating films is their installation within ceiling constructions, particularly behind plasterboard. This option is very beneficial particularly in loft conversions, but it is also widely used in offices, shops, day-care centers or in rooms equipped with heavy and robust furniture or thick carpets where the use of underfloor heating could be problematic.

The film is manufactured in width 400 mm and 500 mm to fit the width of standard plasterboard plates and with a surface output of 140 W/m2 or 200 W/m2.
