First time I post here, I walked over from the “knots” forum.
Has anyone tried to put in a heated shop floor that can handle rolling around mobile bases (loaded of course). Here in Quebec, heating the space is not open to discussion, gotta do it. I use a 220V space heater and it works fine, but I always have that “what if a spark lights the dust …..” in the back of my head. I keep the space as clean as possible, but…
The only way I’ve seen to heat a floor is by embedding the heating wire in cement and then laying the floor over top. I might be reaching here, but I’m trying to achieve the most comfort possible. If I put 2×3 sleepers 16 O.C. (laid flat and screwed to concrete), rigid foam in between, 3/4 ply over top, 1/4″ cement board, then the heating wire (embedded), then some wood flooring, (here’s the question) Is there a risk of damaging the wire when rolling around heavy tools?
Thanks for any replies to this
