Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT-E-HK-RK is a repair kit for DITRA-HEAT-E-HK heating cables. The kit contains all the material to replace one section of heating cable (gray section) up to 10″ (25 cm) long or less in the event of damage, such as cuts by other trades during installation.
Do not use the repair kit to splice different heating cables together. The kit is only intended for making repairs to a single DITRA-HEAT-E-HK heating cable.
Repairs must only be made by a qualified electrician and in accordance with the Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT Repair Procedure, the National Electric Code (USA) or Canadian Electric Code Part I (CAN) and all applicable local electrical and building codes. Failure to follow these Repair Procedure instructions and applicable codes may result in personal injury or property damage or failure of the repair.
Never cut the heating cable. The heating cable cannot be shortened or altered to fit. This could change the cable resistance and could lead to a fire.
