nVent and MAPEI introduced Mapeheat in Canada in 2019 and in the U.S. in 2020.Under the expanded partnership, UK tiling and flooring channel distributors will be able to purchase Mapeheat products from MAPEI and enjoy the same quality, functionality, assortment and purchase price as they would purchasing from nVent. The easy-to-install and versatile Mapeheat product line is suitable for use with tile, stone, laminate, engineered wood and luxury vinyl floors.
In the UK, MAPEI is a well-known producer of materials for the installation of ceramic tiling and resilient flooring and the introduction of Mapeheat underfloor heating products provides the potential to supply a full system from substrate preparation to adhesive, grout and sealant for heated floors.
“After a successful launch in Canada and U.S., nVent is excited to launch the Mapeheat products in the UK,” said Patrick Hendrickx, nVent Thermal product manager of building and infrastructure solutions. “MAPEI is a great partner, and the expansion of our alliance reflects our mutual cultures that emphasize innovation, service and excellent warranty support.
