The MAGNUM Cable has been specially designed for installing in cement floors. The spacing between the cables determines the capacity per m2. This gives you the freedom to apply more capacity (faster reaction time, higher temperatures) or indeed lower capacity (constant or low temperatures) when installing.
Installation is very simple because the cable can be shaped. It can be secured to the MAGNUM Isorol using aluminium tape and with dove-tail platesor tie-wraps onto the concrete net. Moreover, handy spacer strips are available for fitting directly onto the floor.
The advanced thermostat takes account of the required warming up period, so that your floor is always at the right temperature whenyou want it. The lack of radiators on the walls provides optimal freedom for interior decoration and placing furniture.
Example calculations for the cable distances
To calculate the correct cable distance, divide the number of open m2 of floor area by the total capacity of the set. The outcome should be multiplied by 17 (17 = watt per metre of cable stretched out). The first two numbers after the decimal point indicate the distance (spacing) between the cables in centimetres.
Some examples of additional heating
500 watt cable at 3 m2: (166 W/m2) (3 m2: 500 watt) x 17 W/m1=0.102
Install the cables at 10 cm apart from each other.
1000 watt cable at 7 m2: (142 W/m2) (7 m2: 1000 watt) x 17 W/m1 = 0.119.
Install the cables at 11 to 12 cm apart from each other.
MAGNUM Cable is supplied as a complete set and contains
- Heating cable
- Floor sensor
- Flexible tube for floor sensor

- Installation instructions
MAGNUM Cable has a life-long guarantee covering the electromechanical operation of the heating mat and two years covering the thermostat and the floor sensor.
