ARDEX Americas’ FLEXBONE HEAT In-Floor Heating System Aims to be Most Comprehensive Available
With German engineering and inspired design, ARDEX Americas has launched FLEXBONE® HEAT to deliver custom solutions to heat your spaces faster and more efficiently than any other electric in-floor heating system on the market.
The system contains three major components:
- The membrane is a 3-in-1 solution for heating, uncoupling and waterproofing
- It has 81% less air space under the membrane for faster, and more efficient heating
- The cables are manufactured to the highest safety and quality standards with aluminum tubing and FEP cable insulation
There are three options available for the system’s thermostats, including a WiFi enabled version. Each system includes 2 floor sensors, one with the thermostat and one with the heat cable.

HPS Schönox Introduces New Solution for Multi-family
The apartment, multi-family, and senior housing segments are growing rapidly. Innovative solutions to fulfill sound dampening, insulation, and fire-resistance needs have been developed in response to this growth. Schönox has engineered the Renotex® 3D System to not only meet, but exceed, these needs as part of a simple installation process.
This versatile and customizable system combines Renotex® 3D – a mineral wool sound insulation layer – Schönox RS 50 foam tape, and Schönox AP Rapid Plus, which provides a fast and cost-effective subfloor renovation system. Once the system is in place, you have a smooth, level, and long-lasting surface ready for installation of a variety of floorcoverings.
Tarkett’s new Angle Fit rubber stair treads cut installation time in half
Tarkett’s new Angle Fit™ stair treads eliminate time-consuming cuts and reduce the need for adhesive – making stairwell installations faster, easier, and safer.
With a 75-degree angle that returns to the step, the angled stair nose easily overlaps the riser on ADA compliant stairs. The new designs can be specified with or without risers, and are ready for immediate foot traffic when installed with Tarkett Power Tape. As long as the underlying stairs are in good condition, nose caulk is not required.
