Grounding Nets

When installing heat mats in wet areas such as shower rooms, en-suites and bathrooms, grounding nets should be fitted on top of the heat mats to increase safety of the system and to comply with UK regulations. Grounding nets are also required in kitchens within half a metre of sinks or white goods such as fridges, hobs, ovens etc.

Grounding nets consist of a fine metal mesh 0.6mm thick and are supplied in three sizes:

    0.5m x 1.0m
    0.5m x 2.0m
    0.5m x 3.0m

Grounding nets should completely cover the heat mat it is laid on top of, secured using staples or adhesive tape and may be cut if required. Each grounding net has a three-metre length of earth cable that should be connected to the property’s earth.
