Seco Floors

A system for basement sub-floors that heats your floors and protects your home from mould and radon gas.

All basement floors are susceptible to moisture, temperature changes, and condensation. Regardless of a home’s age or the quality of concrete, basement floors require protection from excess moisture and harmful gas.

Seco Floors provides long-term protection from those risks, and keeps your floors comfortably warm. The system can be installed in new or existing homes. 

How it Works

Seco Floors provides a sealed wood sub-floor installed on top of the concrete slab in your basement. 

The installation begins with bare concrete floors. A series of plastic strapping is installed directly onto the concrete floor, strategically placed to create a thin air channel. 3/4” plywood is installed on top of the strapping, creating a sturdy sub-floor that’s ready for any type of flooring.

Seco Air Handler

The Seco Air Handler is then connected. It actively circulates the air between the concrete floor and sub-floor, controlling the humidity. This provides an environment that allows new concrete to breath while ensuring long-term protection against moisture and mould.

The Benefits of Seco Floors

  • Prevents mold growth through moisture control.
  • Removes excess moisture from concrete, eliminating the musty smell common to basements.
  • Heated air circulated below the floor provides a warm and comfortable living space.
  • Prevents rot. 

Heated Floors

A heated floor is a critical part of ensuring your basement is a comfortable environment for you and your family.

The Seco Air Handler collects heat from the furnace area and circulates it throughout the sub-floor. This heat transfers to the flooring of your choice.

Seco Floors combines heated floors with mold prevention to prevent that common musty smell and provide a complete package for comfort in your basement.
