Asphalt Ice & Snow melting system
In recent years there have been plenty of new stories about human and financial costs caused by harsh winter weather. Property damage, increased maintenance expenses, lost productivity, rising insurance premiums, personal injuries and even worse. Installation of the Ice & Snow Melting System ensures a steady solution to address cold weather-related problems. Main purpose of the system is to melt and remove snow and ice from ground surfaces.
DEVIasphalt™ series introduces completely new standards for high performance cables used for ice and snow melting in asphalt areas outside.
We recommend to use the DEVIasphalt™ cables and mats for asphalt installations as they provide short term resistance to temperatures of 240 °C. With this type of cables and mats the sand bed over the cable is not required. This reduces time and installation costs. To avoid cable damage heavy machinery (rollers or asphalt laying machines) should not be used. Asphalt cover should be at least 5 cm thick from the top of the DEVIasphalt™ heating cables. An electrician should ensure of cable and insulation resistance measurements both before and after asphalt is applied.
The Asphalt Ice & Snow melting systems consist of DEVIasphalt™ heating cables, electronic thermostats, and installation accessories.
The digital thermostats with sensors ensure that optimal results are achieved with the least amount of energy possible.
Recommendations for the Asphalt Ice & Snow melting system
Main purpose of the Asphalt Ice & Snow melting system is to melt and remove snow and ice on asphalt surfaces:
• Hotels & Commercial buildings
• Airports and heliports
The Asphalt Ice & Snow melting system is a system installed directly in asphalt ensuring instantaneous relief from snow build up and ice forming.
