STEP RV™ 12" (30cm) wide radiant heating element is designed to provide heating in RV/s, motorhomes, boats, etc.
STEP Warmfloor® has a long experience in providing heating solutions for the automobile industry. The heating elements were orginally made to be used in car seat heaters, but the flexibility and energy efficient properties of the heater has later been used in a variety of applications. STEP RV™ are made to be installed in the floors of recreational vehicles, but can also be installed in the walls.
STEP RV™ has a higher wattage output than the standard residential elements, as these types of applications normally have higher heat losses.
The heating element is normally connected to a 24V power supply, but it can also run on solar or wind power. If the system is connected to 12V, the element will give ¼ of the maximum power – 11 W/ft (36 W/m) x (12)2 / (24)2 = 2.75 W/ft (9 W/m).
