Floor Heating System - Free Cable -

CAG Series

The Global Commander Canada floor heating system provides comfort
and well-being through radiant heating. It produces enveloping
heat that is also clean, cost-effective, uniform, and constant.  

Features that are sure to please!
  • Two installation choices
  • On strapping (included)
  • Allows 3 in. (12W/sq. ft.) and 4 in. (9W/sq. ft.) installations.
  • Plastic strapping can easily be cut to length as needed.
  • Simple and fast strapping interlocking technique.
  • On membrane (not included)
  • Allows 3 5/8 in. (10W/sq. ft.) and 3 3/4 in. (9.6W/sq. ft.) installations.
  • For heating cable installation on uncoupling membrane systems, consult the membrane manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that it is compatible with the use of heating cables.
  • Energy savings
Global Global Commander Canada floor heating systems use the principle of heat distribution, sending warmth directly to the people and objects in the room. Ambient air eventually becomes warm, but because comfort level is not dependent on air temperature, the set temperature of the thermostat can be lowered 3 to 5 degrees with no adverse effects. 
 
This means our systems deliver heat and comfort at lower temperatures, saving you at least 5% on your utility bill. 
  • Versatility and prestige
Our floor heating systems can be used for two purposes,maximizing comfort:
  • Used as a secondary heat source (floor warming), they help keep floor temperature comfortable year round.
  • Used as a primary heat source in a room (ambient floor heating), they provide uniform, comfortable, and enveloping warmth.
Whatever the preferred purpose, this prestigious heating mode will add value to your home.
  • Peace of mind
Installed under your flooring, the heating system is completely out of the way, so you can arrange your furniture as you please.
 
This invisible system does not create dust or stir up air currents. It simply produces and diffuses thermal energy–a big advantage in reducing allergenic pollutants and airborne microbes.

Never cut or shorten the heating cable.

Warranty

  • 25-year on the heating cable
  • 1-year against defects
