Product Features

SnoMelt cables are industrial/commercial grade self-regulating heating cables that can be used for snow melting and ice prevention of surfaces such as concrete roads, ramps and paths.  It may also be used on stairways, walkway gratings and loading docks.  It can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.

SnoMelt will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. It's power output self-regulates in response to the surface temperature.  It's self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.

The installation of SnoMelt is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits. See Product, Application and Documentation Links below.

SnoMelt  Type SM-A is provided for small installations, and is ideally suited for patios, paths and driveways in domestic properties.

SnoMelt  Type SM-B is ideally suted to large scale installations and can be combined with our specially developed, highly energy effifcient SnoFlow control system which applies full power for snow melting and reduced power for ice prevention.

A SnoMelt / SnoFlow  controlled system can reduce operating costs by as much as 80% when compared with conventional controlled snow melting and ice prevention systems.
