Health and Safety
The heat generated from STEP Warmfloor™ gives ideal soft warmth over the whole floor surface. The heat distribution in a room is optimal when the temperature is higher at the feet than at the head level. Dust is not burned or blown around to aggravate people with allergies or asthma.
Concentration and well-being increase when the heat is distributed correctly in a room. Surveys in schools show that a decrease in temperature of 7˚F (4˚C) in a room will increase the learning capacity by 10%. International Ministries of Health have determined that floor temperature for children should be between 67˚F and 79˚F (19˚C and 26˚C) and should not exceed 82˚F (28˚C). STEP Warmfloor™ keeps an average temperature of 75˚F (24˚C) at 24 volts.
The system is fail-safe when properly installed. The nature of the semi-conductive material is self-regulating and cannot overheat. The system uses SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) transformers that come with primary and secondary circuit breakers. There is no dangerous storage of gas or fuel, as with boilers and furnaces.
All materials used in the STEP Warmfloor™ system are ecologically safe. Polyethylene is an environmentally friendly product; it does not produce hazardous gases, and is biodegradable in sunlight. Electromagnetic field values are very low (please contact us for the EMF report).
