In Floor Heating Under Vinyl Sheet Goods

I got a call from a potential client that wants 12' sheet goods installed with an in floor heating pad. I've never done this before and have concerns over putting this in over such thin material. I guess it would be possible if the heat pad is put directly on concrete substrate and then floating. Almost the same as a mortar bed and ceramic tile. Anyone have any experience with this kind of application?

It is how id do it. contact the tech department for the vinyl to see what they say. Attach that mat really good with hot glue every few inches or it will float.

Tile is out of the question? Part of what makes this a desireable product is from the thermal mass of the tile I think.

Those mats are lumpy. You'd have to bury it before applying the vinyl.
