Yes an epoxy floor can be heated. The cables would be embedded in a 3/8" bed of epoxy.

Hope this helps!

How durable are penny tiles for bathroom flooring? Looks Amazing! I had been thinking about using glass pennyrounds on my shower floor, but I was concerned about durability, how have yours held up, i.e., do they scratch easily? Thanks!

You will be fine using glass penny rounds on the shower floor. You should not have any scratching issues and with the small penny rounds there is enough grout used that you will also not have any slipping issues

There's a great article on penny tiles in this month's This Old House magazine - also online.

Ann Sacks Tile has a line called Crystal that has this penny tile, I'm thinking it might be the 'dew' color..

Glass penny tiles add a sense of depth, as the light reflects off the tile and creates shadows, as shown in this revamped 1940s bathroom floor. Because glass is transparent, a white thinset must be used, as well as unsanded grout. Otherwise the sand in the sanded grout will scratch the surface of the glass.Penny tile should be cleaned with water and a mild soap. Glass penny tile can be cleaned in the same manner or with a pH-neutral glass cleaner. With any tile, but especially small mosaics like penny tile, it is recommended to seal the grout after installation to prevent staining. The high percentage of grout versus tile and the geometric nature of the pattern will make any stains appear pronounced.
