Electric radiant floor layout (pic)

This is my bedroom layout that I have a contractor working on. I want to make sure it's laid right. I've read things about the wires shouldn't be touching etc. any insight appreciated. Thx!

    What brand system is it? What is going on top? Where do the red and white wires go?

    What does the I/O manual say? Most systems I researched and installed do not want any wires in the grid, the leads or the floor sensors touching or crossing any other wires. Most have a wire minimum spacing in the grid wires.

    The company is called US Floor Heating.
    Has anyone here used their products?

    Have not used that product, it looks similar to others.
    You should always monitor the electric resistance of the mats before during and after the installation as they are very easy to damage.
    A couple red flags:
    The spliced connections under the floor are a cause for concern.
    I looks like you are planning to put a floating floor directly on top of the wires. They will quickly fail from pressure and abrasion.
    The wires crossing other wires will also fail prematurely.
