Can I use Brazilian slate tiles with underfloor heating?
Asked by... Hannah James from Hinkley

The Question

Can you tell me if your Brazilian slate tiles can be used with matting under floor heating.

The Answer

Brazilian Slate Tiles can be used with any type of under-floor heating system as they are very thermally conductive meaning that the energy from the chosen underfloor heating system can transfer quickly to the surface of the stone.

In general terms, the thickness of the slate will have little effect on the heat output but thicker tiles may result in a longer heat-up time.
