Infrared heating system
Learn more about our latest surface heating technology that replaces the “old heating film”, which had been developed since 2005 through 4 generation types. In the production technology, the use of the CNT (carbon Nano tube) heat exchanger with extreme load capacity is a real innovation.
The brand new 80-130 heating film, which complies with all European requirements and standards, provides a more economical and safe operation when compared to conventional electric floor heating and heating films.
More stable heating element using Carbon Nanotube technology at production.
OUR PREMIUM LINE film heater is an energy saving surface heater, utilizes carbon nanotubes (CNT) to provide superior stability, efficiency and reliability compared to other conventional and PTC heaters. Nano sized carbon sheets, consisting of carbon atoms, are rolled into tube shapes to become a giant molecule. Its electric conductivity is 1000 times higher than copper and it’s heat conductivity is more than two times higher than diamond, providing extreme heat-resistant effect.

ask for details.
On both sides of the CALEO heating film, there are high purity copper conductors attached to a Nano-tech heating element through a patented trapezoid-silver mesh. Electrical resistance is generated between the two conductors, which warms up the special carbon heating element to its optimum temperature depending on the performance. The heating film transfers its own heat to the flooring through heat transfer / heat conduction.
OUR heating films consist of 3 layers and basically 4 main components. The production of these components from carefully selected raw materials, their treatment in a heat chamber, as well as the high quality laminating of the layers are indispensable requirements for producing a robust final product. The quality of raw materials and Nano-technological printing also play an important role in achieving maximum efficiency.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES IT FULLY HEAT UP THE ROOMS?
Yes, naturally it does. Electric floor heating installed with heating film can heat up everything that can be heated up by traditional water circulation floor heating. Nevertheless, it can be also used for more comfort or as additional heating by means of setting the performance and the thermostat. In the case of doors and windows with big surfaces, the installation of perimeter heating is reasonable. In such cases, heating films with higher performance are installed below the cooling structures.
WHAT IS THE MONTHLY CONSUMPTION OF FLOOR HEATING?
Heating does not have individual consumption. The heated building has an energy demand, which can be determined at a yearly level, with the same calculation that is used for the preparation of energy certificates. Expected heating costs can be determined based on the thermal insulation values of the walls, floors and doors and windows, even with a precision of 5%.
CAN I PLACE FURNITURE ON FLOOR HEATING?
Yes, you can. CNT smart technology allows heating films to be operated in the long run in a covered state, directly under the covers. The use of OUR products allows free interior design. The place of fixed built-in furniture (kitchen counter, built-in wardrobe) can be deducted from the area to be laid already during the design work.
CAN I INSTALL HEATING FILMS UNDER STONE COVERS OR FLOOR TILES?
No, you can’t. The tile adhesive cannot bind on plastic (PET) surfaces as this would result in a surface that cannot be covered. Heating films are suitable for the heating of dry construction or click system covers (laminate flooring, strip parquet or over ceiling plasterboard). Floor tiles, carpets and vinyl covers are heated by special electric heating mats optimized for this purpose.
WHAT IS THE EXPECTED SERVICE LIFE OF HEATING FILMS IN YEARS?
Without any mechanical damage, OUR CNT heating films have an unlimited life. This means minimum 50 heating seasons even without a decrease in performance, which is many times more than the obsolescence time of an average building engineering system. During the above period it does not need revisions under guarantee or maintenance.
WHAT WILL THE TEMPERATURE OF THE HEATED FLOOR BE, AND HOW QUICKLY IS IT REACHED?
Relevant standards do not distinguish electric and water circulation floor heating. Pursuant to the above globally accepted health limit values, floor temperature should be between 29 and 31°C. Heating time is short, it varies between 15 and 45 minutes, which also depends on the initial and current temperature of the room.
WHEN IS CEILING HEATING BETTER THAN FLOOR HEATING?
Presently there is no heating solution that is better from a heat technical aspect and more comfortable than floor heating. Ceiling heating is recommended in buildings where very low installed performance is needed (AA+, nearly passive or certified passive house), and in light-structure buildings where plasterboard suspended ceilings are part of the construction.
Ceiling heating is also reasonable in the cases of overfurnitured rooms as in such cases the floor cannot provide a sufficient exothermic surface because beds and cupboards cover at least 60% of the floor, or when you choose a cover that is incompatible with floor heating, e.g.: bamboo, carpet.
Combined systems: Each room is an independent heating circuit so the concerned building can include both floor and ceiling heating according to your needs.
FLOOR AND CEILING HEATING
OUR CNT heating films are available in different sizes and performance for the installation of surface heating systems. Types with lower performance of 80 and 130W are suitable for underfloor heating, while the high-performance CNT30 product range of 160W/m2 can only be installed as wall and ceiling heating. Heating film technology is a unique opportunity for modern building industry and building engineering.
Following the development of the heating foil product in 2005, contrary to other producers, decided to avoid spending its resources for the simple “self-regulating” technology, and turned towards the distinctively different CNT (carbon nano tube) system development process with the active cooperation of engineers from Japan and South-Korea. Practical experiences have proven us.
HOW DOES INFRARED HEATING WORK?
Traditional heating systems use vast amounts of money to heat the air in a room, just to allow this warm air to rise and gather at the ceiling. We offer you Infrared heating solutions that are up to 50% more energy efficient than most commonly used heating systems. They lock the heat in the objects, slowly releasing pleasant warmth in to the air. Infrared heaters work in a similar way to which the sun heats the earth. Invisible heat rays travel through the air bouncing off the surfaces of objects and that is how everything around us absorbs the heat.
Unlike traditional heating, Infrared heating does not dry the air. It also prevents heat loss through ventilation, as unlike in the case of traditional heating - there is no hot air that travels around and escapes through opened doors or windows.
Infrared heating products are clean, health beneficial and a very energy efficient way of heating. There is no other more instant, economical, healthier and environmentally friendly way of heating.
You will be less likely to have headaches in rooms with infrared heating as oxygen levels remain high and the air does not become "heavy“ and dry.
Also, you will not suffer any irritations to your skin or mucous membranes. Infrared heating systems run very cleanly, creating no dust, emissions, smells or noise and requiring no maintenance.
You will need to cover about 60-70% of your area with infrared heating membrane. Start saving today!

There is 2 ways to connect infrared membrane.We are recommend to install the thermostate, its helps you to save energy.
Unlike convection heating, Infrared heating has clear health benefits for the human body. While convectional heaters produce the heat that warms up the air and surfaces, Infrared heaters heat objects and people directly. It creates a movement of the heat in the body through optimum blood circulation and this way produces a sense of deep warmth.
Furthermore, Infrared heating is beneficial for people with health conditions such as asthma or bronchial ailments. Its unique heating method does not create air currents that increase dust circulation in the room. It also prevents unwanted humidity that causes mould to grow.
Fresh air is also essential for a healthy living environment. However ventilation comes at the price, as it creates heat loss, especially if it is combined with convectional heating system. Opposite to traditional heaters, Infrared heating products heat the objects and people, while convectional heating works on much higher temperatures and relay on the hot air movement. It means that the heat loss becomes greater, as hot air travels out through the vents and opened windows. Meanwhile, Infrared heating does not create air currents and in this way significantly reduces heat loss.
Imagine dust free, non-humid home or work space. Infrared heating solutions can help you achieve your perfect, health-benefiting environment.
How its works
Infrared heating products operate in the far infrared spectrum producing sun like heat tuned between 9-14 micron meters. This specific narrow range ensures safe and healthy heating.
The electromagnetic waves cause molecules to oscillate and release energy within the heated environment. This phenomenon causes us to feel warm.
Traditional heating systems use vast amounts of money to heat the air in a room, just to allow this warm air to rise and gather at the ceiling. We offer you Infrared heating solutions that are up to 50% more energy efficient than most commonly used heating systems.

What is it?
Have you ever touched a surface warmed by the sun on an early spring day and felt a pleasant warmth, even when a thermometer indicates cold? The principal behind Infrared heating lies in understanding how the sun rays work. They are a mixture of electromagnetic waves ranging from infrared (IR) to ultraviolet rays (UV) which travel through the atmosphere without the need of air or any other medium to carry them. When sunrays reach the object, they heat it from the inside leaving it warm without heating the air around it. Infrared rays are just under the visible light range in the electromagnetic spectrum.
Infrared heating works by directly heating walls, floors, things located in a room and a human body, instead of heating the air. Then heated objects release their heat into the environment. Infrared heating creates the surroundings where the floor is warmer than the ceiling. Such method of heating is more pleasant to a human body than the convectional heating that heats the air and relies on air currents to spread the heat in the room.In comparison with the conventional heating, the Infrared heating minimizes the difference between floor and ceiling temperatures. It may significantly reduce heating costs, as it heats square meters instead of heating cubic meters. The Infrared heating acts directly and that means it does not require any contact such as air currents to carry the heat. Therefore, the temperature in the room may be easily maintained and restored if needed. The heat is accumulated by the structure of a building and things in the room and then slowly released in to the air.Infrared heating is a great way of heating domestic, industrial, commercial or any other environments, as it does not create air currents that raise dust particles in the heating area. And that is one of many advantages of Infrared heating.
