    Ditra mat. What do people think ? Its been around a long time. Some of you were not even tiling
    when it came out. Is it better than the rest? Is it a good price? Is it any good ?I have put this on the other page

    I’ve used the Ditra heat package a couple of times now, think it’s the best package out there imo

    I have total confidence in Ditra. Not so much with others that I know have had problems in the past.
    I have seen test videos which show just how much "give" there is in Ditra, and yet the tile/stone remains locked into the dovetails.
    So for me, it's always the best option.
    It's much more than a crack-mat, and I am yet to be convinced that unbonded mats (like BAL's new/old offering) are the best solution.

    I've fitted Ditra heat a few times and it's good and easy. Don't try lifting it the day after you've laid it and think "it's not stuck!" , leave it to set properly and it's fine.

    I have used ditra in the past . I like it but it's expensive . I use dural ci matting purchased direct from dural , you don't need to spend thousands with them to open an account . They also do the heat carrier mat on its own so you can use whatever cable you like .

    German gear is usually the industry standard.

    I have to say its nearly always my decoupling membrane of choice. I have yet to see or hear of a failure where @Schlüter-Systems Ltd@Schlüter-Systems Ltd ditra has been fitted correctly

    I think that will be the case for them all - only time i have heard of failures in other products is when the Dural mat was manufactured wrong.

    Search the forum, other groups and the internet and you will find other membranes have far more user issues/ gripes than Schluter. It out performs the competition with ease. I begrudgingly use a thin membrane if height is an issue.
