EasyHeat Heating Mats Prevent Homes and Businesses from Being Snowed In

ROSEMONT, IL, -- With winter quickly coming upon us, many businesses and homeowners are now wondering what they can do to prevent being snowed in. EasyHeat has the answer. The company's Sno*Melter® electrical heating mats automatically melt snow and ice, plus eliminate the hassle and expense of shoveling, salting and plowing.

The Sno*Melter system uses highly-efficient, low temperature heating cables formed into flexible mats available in widths of 18-inches or 36-inches and up to thirty feet in length. Sno*Melter mats install quickly and economically below the surface of asphalt, pavers or concrete, and can be connected to standard voltages up to 480 VAC. Sensors connected to the system measure outside temperature to assure the mats are only energized during freezing conditions. Customers can also choose to install an optional aerial sensor that detects falling or drifting snow, or a ground sensor that monitors the temperature of the surface being heated.

Sno*Melter mats can be shaped to fit curved edges to accommodate most walks and driveways. If a design calls for a unique shape or power requirement, custom mats are available from the factory. In addition, there are Sno*Melter step-mats designed for installation on most step shapes without splices.

Commercial and residential building applications for Sno*Melter mats include parking lots, sidewalks, entry ways, access ramps, loading docks, bike paths and stairs.
