What is snow melting?
Snow falling on a warm surface such as a warm car melts instantly. This is how snow melting systems work. They are heating elements embedded in your ramp or walkway that melt the snow as it falls on the surface. Your accessibility ramp can benefit significantly from the installation of the snow melting system.
Our systems are available in both cables and mats and have been designed for easy installation in asphalt, concrete or mortar beneath pavers. Our cable snow melting systems will guarantee that your ramps, walkways, patios, stairs, and driveways remain snow and ice-free. This improves safety.
Heavenly Heat Snow Melting Systems
Even though snow can be beautiful, it can create a huge inconvenience and even damage on your ramp. Without a de-icing system installed on your ramp, getting out of your building during winter can be hectic and dangerous.
Our snow melting system is built to eliminate this inconvenience and improve safety. You don’t have to shove or salt your ramp. With our systems, you will enjoy the winter season without any inconvenience.
Start Smart with a Free SmartPlan
Getting a good installation plan is the most important stage in the installation of an accessibility ramp de-icing system. Heavenly Heat offers a free, no-obligation SmartPlan which includes the electrical plan, installation plan, and the itemized quote. The plan is prepared by our experienced and highly skilled in-house team.
To take advantage of this offer you just need to provide us with a sketch of your project. The sketch should include the dimensions and any relevant information such as where the power will be accessed from. We will provide you with a SmartPlan within a day of receiving your sketch. Our itemized quote also includes MSRP pricing which helps with budgeting.
When to Install a Snow Melting System
Considering the snow melting system is embedded in the surface, the best time to install it is when you are creating your ramp or walkway for the first time, when expanding it or redoing it.
The best time for this project is from late spring to late fall. The reason for this is because you should avoid icing conditions when installing concrete. The ground temperature has to be above freezing point.
Installing the Snow Melting System
Snow melting heating elements have to be installed within the construction; approximately 2 to 3 inches beneath the finished surface. The thinness of our electrical snow melting system means it has minimal impact on the overall depth of your accessibility ramp. The cables are ¼ inches thick. Our system can be used with concrete or pavers and within asphalt. Every surface type has varying cross section with a suggested depth.
After installation, you need to monitor your system keenly over the first snowfalls. This helps determine if an adjustment in the controls is needed to give better results.
