Ramps, driveways, sidewalks and stairs can cause serious accidents and injuries if snow and ice extremely accumulated on them. Raychem systems eliminate these risks by producing complete floor heating systems all components and accessories.
Any Raychem Snow-Ice melting System consists of heating cables or heating mats, thermostats and sensors.
They can also be installed in bridges, gutters, drainage pipes and solid platforms; they are mostly beneficial in parking lots, gardens and park.
These underfloor snow melting systems can be installed under many types of surfaces like cement,asphalt and natural stone. All the heating process can work automatically according to the readings of the temperature and moisture sensors. The snow melts and decreases naturally there is no need to shovel it or use salt on it.
Raychem Snow-Ice Protections System consists of:
• Static powerful heating cable (EM-4-CW) or self-regulating heating cable (EM-2-X)
• Thermostat control unit (VIA-DU-20)
• Ground temperature and the humidity sensor (VIA-DU-20-S).
Once the system is programmed properly it may work for years without any human interference.
Designing Raychem Snow-Ice Melting Systems
There is a certain delicate process of calculating the wind speed the average teperature and the thickness of the surface inorder to determine how deep the heating cables should be installed, and which type. This process insures best results with the least cost possible.
