Amber Launches New Decoupling Membrane System

Amber Launches New Decoupling Membrane System

The new Amber Decoupling Membrane is two products in one. Firstly, as a decoupling membrane guarding against movement in the subfloor which can cause tiles to crack and secondly as a heating cable carrier providing warmth to floors. The polypropylene membrane has rounded square-shaped studs that form channels specially designed to embed and fasten electric heating cables. Coupled with the Amber Heating Cable, the system is ideal for small or large installations and awkward areas within a property where flexibility is required. Depending on the cable spacing, the cable can provide a power output for either primary or secondary heat.

Available in 5m and 15m rolls, the Amber Decoupling Membrane has a thickness of 5.5mm and does not require expansion joints in the screed before laying ceramic and natural stone tiles. It’s also a waterproof membrane when the Amber waterproofing tape and sealant is used. With the Amber heating cables available from 10m lengths to 165m lengths, Amber can cover any project area size.

Typically used in tiled areas, the system can also be used with varying floorcoverings such as carpet, vinyl and timber floors. Full instructions, recommendations and technical information is provided with the product to ensure the correct installation and product care is taken.

There has been a 7% growth in the Underfloor Heating market this year and Amber Underfloor Heating is going from strength to strength only a couple of years after launch. Amber products are distributed exclusively through wholesalers, retailers and retail showrooms, providing underfloor heating mats, foils, cables, thermostats and now the decoupling system.

With over 30 years of experience, the team boasts a wealth of knowledge within the industry; and in recognition of the brands development over the past year, Amber was voted a finalist at the BMJ Awards at The Brewery, London for Best Heating Brand.
