ZMesh is a 9" or 12" wide bronze wire mesh that resembles screen door material. It is used to add warmth to cold floors, total space heat and melt ice and snow off roofs.
Each system uses an attractive programmable thermostat. The thermostat can be programmed to measure floor temperature, air temperature, or it can be set to be on at desired times.
With a wood sub floor, the ZMesh can be directly nailed or stapled through. With a concrete sub floor, the ZMesh can be glued down. Whoever is installing the flooring on the ZMesh can do so as if the ZMesh were not even there. Plastic lathe (not metal lathe) should be used when using tile on top of the ZMesh.
Virtually any floor surface can be installed directly over the ZMesh, including tile, slate, marble, hardwood and carpet.
The ZMesh, and the heat produced by it, have no effect on hardwood, or any other type of flooring.
