The first step is to plan the Ditra-Heat cable installation per Schluter’s directions. For this project we used 3 stud spacing and kept heat cables at least 2″ away from the wall and shower curb.

In addition, our heat cables were 7″ away from the center of the toilet flange to ensure the wax ring won’t melt.

We also installed two Ditra-Heat sensors, the second was a back up.

All Ditra-Heat seams were waterproofed using Kerdi-Band and Schluter’s ALL-SET. This is especially important at the Schluter curb.

Ditra-Heat can be installed and tiled over in 1 day if done properly.

Watch our video for all the details.
