ProMelt electric radiant snow melting mats install easily and quickly providing electrically heated driveways and walkways. Energy efficient and environmentally friendly snow and ice removal in the worst conditions is possible without using nasty chemicals or corrosive salt.
ProMelt heated snow melting mats are manufactured by SunTouch Watts Radiant (pioneers of indoor radiant heat) using superior quality snow melting cable attached to a reinforced tape grid simplifying installation while maintaining optimum spacing of cables. Plus, you can free the cable from the mat to fill in or fit steps, curved or angled spaces as needed.
ProMelt is an effective, reliable and invisible snow melting system that will serve you for many years. Typical projects of 300 SF or less simply require mats and a snow sensor-controller and are very affordable and convenient.
ProMelt Snow Melting Benefits:
285°F (140°C) Short-term max. for asphalt covering
30 or 50 Amps @ 240v, depending on controls chosen
70 A Breaker.
Attach ProMelt over cooled asphalt base layer- Cover with hand shoveled final asphalt layer min 1.5 inch thick - DO NOT DRIVE machines on exposed ProMelt. Roll with small roller or compactor.
Minimum 1.5 inches sand over cables, max paver thickness of 2.5 inches
Use chairs/dobies so rebar/Mesh ProMelt is attached to is in top 2" of slab
Maximum 2.5" total thickness over cables
Every 24" using plastic ties (no metal) for mesh, or nail through tape for surface
1.25" minimum - Check TCNA guidelines
1.5" below top of heated surface - completely covered
Minimum 6" from edge of slab or 12" for asphalt without a curb

ProMelt Mats install faster and easier than any snow melting system in 3 easy steps once you have read all instructions, planned the electrical details, designed a layout and prepared your jobsite:
The ProMelt radiant heating mats are built tough for Permanent installation within virtually any surface to provide efficient melting of snow and ice automatically. They must be completely embedded and at least 1.25 inches below the top of the new layer.
|Wire Construction||ETFE Fluoropolymer, Braided copper ground plane, Foil shield and Outside polyurethane jacket|
