How is ThermaSkirt-e installed? 

Installation in a Nutshell:

Installing the ThermaSkirt-e system is pretty straight forward; after an electrician has taken a power supply to the switch fused spur the rest can be carried out by a competent self‐builder or tradesman using the detailed instructions provided.

  • Remove existing skirting boards (if already fitted)
  • Cut ThermaSkirt panels to appropriate lengths
  • Fit adjustable mounting brackets to the walls at 600~700mm spacing
  • Power supply to the switched fused spur for the controls to be installed by a Qualified Electrician
  • Prepare cable ends and insert into the skirting panel
  • Connect termination PCB then connect the incoming 230v supply to the terminals
  • Fit the heating cables into each section of skirting
  • Snap-fit each length of ThermaSkirt onto the wall mounting brackets
  • Finish the installation by clipping on the covers to hide any exposed wires

What do I need to install ThermaSkirt-e?

The power supply from the switched fused spur to the control unit has to be installed by a Qualified Electrician, in accordance with Part P regulations (applies to the UK – see your local regulations if outside the UK) and needs to be fed from a RCD protected consumer unit.

Once this has been done the installation is straightforward and can be carried out by any competent tradesman using the detailed instructions provided.

A chop saw (hacksaw suitable if only making a few cuts) will be required to cut the skirting down to the required lengths and we will supply a de-burring tool to chamfer the edge of the cable channels.

A pair of pliers/grips will also be needed to “fan out” the ends of the cable channel to protect it from future damage along with a UK standard 2 gang Plastic (can’t be metal) back box for the thermostat.
