Innovative System Protects Floor Tiles from Cracking
The DCM-PRO Uncoupling System is the latest development in electric underfloor heating by Warmup.
Due to load-bearing weight and structural subfloor movement, floor finishes can get damaged and tiles are especially prone to cracking. The DCM-PRO Membrane’s innovative uncoupling design results in significant protection for tiled flooring by creating a new layer between the subfloor and the floor finish.
The Membrane has been successfully tested to ANSI 118.12 standards and performed well on the Robinson test (ASTM C-627). It is the highest-rated membrane for floor heating systems.
The Membrane is available in two options, fleece-backed or peel-and-stick, offering great versatility for your installation preference. Both membranes can be used with the DCM-PRO Heating Cable for efficient underfloor heating.
How Does the Uncoupling Technology Work?
Small movements in structural subfloors caused by seasonal temperature variations can result in damage to your flooring. The DCM-PRO Membrane utilizes uncoupling technology so that the floor heater moves with these structural shifts, preventing and protecting your floor finish from damage caused by this movement.
Two Membrane Options Available
The DCM-PRO membrane is suitable for use with all floor types. Its unique castellations are carefully designed to hold the DCM-PRO Heating Cable firmly in place and without the use of any tools. The patented design allows for generous cable-to-thinset contact ultimately heating faster and more evenly.
The Membrane is available in two options; the Fleece-backed version and the Peel-and-Stick version.
DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick Membrane
Installs in minutes with a self-adhesive backing.
With an effective self-adhesive backing, Warmup’s DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick membrane does not require any tile adhesive for it to be firmly attached to the subfloor. Simply peel off the backing from the membrane and stick into position. The DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick membrane offers a quick and hassle-free installation of Warmup Underfloor Heating and can be installed by a qualified electrician or tiler in as little as 30 minutes.

DCM-PRO Fleece-backed Membrane
Use with any thinset.
The DCM-PRO Fleece-backed Membrane features a fleece backing which can be used with any thinset to create a strong connection between the subfloor and the Membrane. The TCNA-tested Membrane can be installed on wood and cement subfloors or Insulation Boards. It provides a quick and easy installation when used as part of the DCM-PRO Uncoupling System.

DCM-PRO Heating Cable
The DCM-PRO Heating Cable is durable and flexible. It’s ETFE inner jacket allows for high heat output while its PVC outer sleeve protects for a smooth installation. The DCM-PRO Heating cable is suitable for use with both Membrane options.
The DCM-PRO Membrane’s castellations make fitting the Heating Cable easy, quick, and tool free! The DCM-PRO Membrane protects the secured cable from any potential damage during installation – leading to a reduced risk of cable failures.
Cable spacing can vary or rotate for the highest flexibility in heat outputs to accomplish anything from Comfort Heating to Primary Heating.
How to Install DCM-PRO Uncoupling System
Whether you are installing the Fleece-backed or Peel-and-Stick Membrane, the DCM-PRO Uncoupling System is easy and quick to install, even in a shower! Warmup’s fluoropolymer-insulated cables are approved for showers and wet rooms. This is specifically popular in steam rooms where floors and benches can feel particularly cold! In North America, the NEC limits applications to horizontal surfaces (shower pan and bench).
DCM-PRO has an effective self-adhesive backing that does not require additional adhesive to firmly attach it to the subfloor, saving both time and cost. Just make sure that the subfloor is always clear from dust and clutter before attaching the membrane to the floor.
You don’t need any tools to install the system – this makes applying the cable in equal parallel lines to the castellations of the mat effortless. The cable’s highly-flexible and durable qualities contribute further to its ease of installation.
After this, the DCM-PRO Mat will be covered with self-levelling compound, allowing it to heat and protect any floor covering material that is certified for use with underfloor heating. This includes tiles, engineered wood, vinyl, and carpet.
