    There are many versions of under floor heating, the raychem type I would not worry about, the fixed output type often is laid on wood, but it would depend on the control, in the main you have a pocket with a sensor so the floor can't exceed 55˚C. The floor surface has a max temperature of 27˚C which is why it's so useless at heating a house, great having warm feet but need heat from other source as well.

    I had it in old house in the wet room, the size was such even if the under floor sensor failed it would not get much over the 27˚C and it was laid on plywood with tiles on top. Under the plywood was thick insulation so heat could not go down, result was even when not on, floor did not feel cold.
