Snow Melt Systems – Did you know
A study published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine found there are, on average, more than 11,500 snow shovel-related injuries and medical emergencies every year. Installing a snow and ice melt (SIM) system can eliminate the need to shovel snow and ice and prevent personal injury. SIM systems are incredibly versatile and can be installed as a stand-alone system or fully integrated as a small sub-assembly into the hydronic space heating system in a home. Like indoor radiant heated floors, snow and ice melt systems are a proven technology with wide adoption in commercial and industrial applications such as emergency room entrances, helicopter pads, toll plazas, and ski resorts. Common residential applications include, driveways, parking areas, sidewalks, porches, and wheel chair ramps.
Snow and ice melt systems are concealed beneath the walking or driving surface. The system automatically activates in response to both a temperature drop and presence of moisture, delivering service only when conditions necessitate. This makes a SIM system exceptionally efficient.
