The heating film is based on the electric resistance of the carbon. This material has perfect insulating and fire proof properties. The infrared heating film is manufactured of carbon and silver lattice on proprietary Laminex Film. The copper bus bar (electrode) provides the electric current, while the silver lattice secures the material to prevent sparking.
Baseboard and Radiator heaters
Our heat films full surface area heating technology provides a far more efficient, full room heating application as compared to conventional baseboard electric heat, that is by design only capable of heating the first 20” from the heat element. Baseboard and radiator systems requires much more energy to heat the entire room, as it has only a single and limited heat source where the heat energy dissipates as it travels across the room. It is apparent that these systems consume far more energy to perform the same function to heat a room that results in uneven heat distribution.
HVAC forced Air
Forced air HVAC systems create a large volume of air circulating through a room spreading dust and creating areas of uneven temperatures. With HexHeat, installed in the floor, the far-infrared heating fills the entire room with even heat.
HexHeat : Finally Uniform Heat
Our far infrared heat film technology requires a lower ambient temperature to warm an area than other forms of heat because it covers the entire floor surface area and radiates far infrared heat energy upward. This fills the entire room with uniform heat throughout.
HexHeat Accompanies Heat Pumps, VRF and Mini-Splits
A perfect complement to Mini Split Systems
As we work with many contractors installing Mini-splits, VRFs and heat pumps, we have learned there is a need for an energy efficient solution to provide supplementary or primary heat in the depths of winter if a system fails for any reason during the cold exterior temperatures. Many of these contractors explained our heat film offers a far more efficient alternative to secondary baseboard heating as back up.
Several of those contractors also mentioned depending on application requirements of their clients, running the coils into other rooms was cost prohibitive as result of budgetary restraints. HexHeat solved those applications as well. By using Mini-splits and VRFs with HexHeat in tandem, it maximizes energy efficiency while maintaining a clients budget.

HexHeat’s heat film is a unique and patented design, available in 60cm and 100cm widths and lengths of 3m to 7m. We have engineered the heating material to provide full surface area heating without any cold spots that are common in less efficient radiant heating systems.
Once up to temperature HexHeat only turns back on when the temperature drops below the set temperature on the UL certified thermostat making this a very efficient technology.
Our Products manufactured by SH Korea meets EU certifications CE approval, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ROHS Compliance and CAN-UL-US recognition. We guarantee the highest quality products in the world.

Our far-infrared radiant heat gives a longer lasting and more complete heating effect than other heating systems and are known to effectively suppress odors and growth of germs providing a healthier environment.
We have all experienced the soothing warmth of summer sun on our skin. Our heat film technology, like the sun, produces nearly identical radiant heat waves which work to heat up water. Given that the human body is made up of mostly water, this infrared heat transfers extremely effectively and can help gently increase blood circulation, rid the body of toxins and even provide pain relief.
Unlike forced air heating systems, our infrared radiant heating technology does not blow dust or allergens, which can have a negative effect on the respiratory tract (effecting asthmatics, people with contact lenses, allergies, and more).
Stable moisture, which is good for rheumatism sufferers and not to mention that moisture promotes the growth of mold and mites, which can cause asthma and bronchitis in predisposed people.
Helps improve circulation and promotes cell growth.
