Underfloor heating compatible door mats? What do I need to know?

A common query we get asked in customer services is whether we sell underfloor heating compatible door mats. The answer is yes. We are more than happy to help you find the right doormat to work with your system.

If you have under floor heating you’ll already be familiar with having to give consideration to your heating when choosing floor coverings and your doormat should be no exception. Mats with PVC and rubber backings are not suitable for use with under floor heating. The warmth build up can cause the matting to stick to the floor and damage to the backing.

Underfloor Heating Compatible Door Mats for a mat well

If you place a barrier between PVC backed matting the matting and the floor, it's can be used with underfloor heating in a mat well.

If you have a shallow mat well within a floor that has underfloor heating, then our synthetic coir matting is ideal. With a heat resistant backing, this product is ideal for use with underfloor heating. Our Soft Man Made Coir or Absorbent Scraper are also a little softer under foot due to the looped pile rather than a bristle pile. The synthetic fiber is also very stain resistant; you are likely to be able to keep the same mat for a long time. This makes synthetic coir an eco-friendly choice in terms of longevity.

However, there is a way to safely use PVC Backed Coir in your mat well with underfloor heating. If you place a barrier (e.g. thin plyboard) between the matting and the floor, this will prevent heat from building up. As a result, the issues usually caused will not occur.
