The most advanced radiant heating element available, ZMesh is used to melt snow and ice from roofs and provide luxurious warmth for floors and spaces. ZMesh can be nailed and stapled through, causes minimal floor buildup (1/16") under hardwood, carpet and engineered floors, and is installed underneath non-conductive shingles, membranes and other roofing materials for an effective roof deicing solution.
ZMesh is a durable but flexible 9 or 12 inch wide bronze mesh heating element used for in-floor total space heating, floor warming, and roof deicing. ZMesh can be installed under roofing materials and under most floor coverings including carpet, hardwood, tile and slate.
The ZMesh heating system provides innovative methods for radiant heating. Utilizing state of the art components and low-voltage technology, our products are safe and efficient in operation. ZMesh has a limited 25 year warranty and is engineered to provide simple and problem-free solutions. ZMesh has been in use since 1979.
The ZMesh heating element is the most advanced radiant heating element available on the market today. With no build up requirements, and the ability to nail or staple through the mesh, ZMesh has little impact on any job. It also boasts the longest warranty and longevity in the industry.
ZMesh shines in versatility for floor warming, roof deicing under asphalt shingles and other non-metal roofing materials, and even countertop warming.
How ZMesh Works
The ZMesh resistance heating element is powered by a step down transformer that provides 32 volts or less to the heating element. The low voltage technology of ZMesh makes it safe, versatile, long lasting, and maintenance free.
Most radiant heating systems on the market today are high voltage (120-480 volts), ZMesh operates at 32 volts or less. In addition to using safe low voltage technology, the control units incorporate self diagnosing and monitoring technology that relay information to the end user.
ZMesh is manufactured of the finest materials and does not corrode. With 32 volts or less running through a mesh grid, ZMesh can be stapled or nailed through with out being damaged. With no moving parts to replace or maintain, ZMesh low voltage systems are long lasting and maintenance free.
Due to the low profile nature of the ZMesh heating element (about the height of screen door material), the mesh is ideal for use under nearly all floor coverings, this includes laminate flooring and carpet.
In addition, the ability to nail or staple ZMesh down makes it easy and perfect for installation under hardwood flooring, regardless of the hardwood flooring install process.
The Zmesh product can also be installed under a backer board or tile crack control system for cement mortar applications including rock, stone, slate, travertine, ceramic tile and more. This makes it perfect to do large areas with multiple floor coverings. For example, if you had a kitchen with tile flooring, and a living room with carpet, you can run the ZMesh radiant heating element under both floor coverings on 1 zone. This saves money on installation, materials, and operation costs for your floor warming system.
For retrofit installations, ZMesh can be stapled to exposed floor joists to efficiently warm your floors above.
