Designed for residential or commercial applications, Uponor’s snow and ice melting system circulates a warm water and glycol solution through freeze-resistant, crosslinked polyethylene tubing, which is buried in concrete, asphalt or a sand bed. The water heats the surface until it’s warm enough to melt snow and ice. The system can be controlled manually or automatically. The system complies with the American Disabilities Act regulations for safe and easy access. It also is designed to take advantage of existing energy sources. The use of waste energy provides a virtually cost-free system operation. Uponor.
