ClearZone Radiant Snow Melting Systems: The Perfect Fit for Your Driveway

Warmzone offers several high quality heated driveway and radiant snow melting systems available for both commercial and residential applications. Among their most popular products you’ll find ClearZone cable, a trusted, popular snow and ice melting solution among homeowners and professional builders alike, and a great solution for snow removal during the cold winter months.

Snow melting system installed under pavers

ClearZone electric snowmelt cable is incredibly energy efficient, fully automated, maintenance free and easy to install. Plus, it’s readily customizable to meet the needs of just about any project, including retrofitting existing driveways. That’s because ClearZone snow heat cable can be purchased on the spool in a form that’s durable, versatile and easily configured for use in a variety of applications. This trusted, popular snow melting solution allows for greater flexibility so it’s good for custom layouts, or for use in large snow melting jobs and unconventionally shaped areas.

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer or contractor with limited experience in radiant heat installation, it may be more beneficial to choose ClearZone Radiant Snow Melting Mats. They’re basically ClearZone heat cable pre-spaced in mats to create a convenient, versatile design. The heat cable is pre-spaced and attached to a durable backing for proper cable spacing and easy “roll-out” installation. The backing can be cut on site so mats can be installed around corners and odd layouts.

ClearZone cable is also designed for installation under a variety of applications, from new concrete pours to paver stones. Whether pre-configured or right off the spool, it can easily withstand the hot temperatures of new asphalt construction jobs and installation is easy. Asphalt is spread directly over the rugged ClearZone heat cable and then compacted. Embedded, fully automated ClearZone radiant heat snow melting provides a discreet, reliable snowmelt solution for your driveway or sidewalks.

For heated stone or brick paver driveways and sidewalks, the cable is laid out in the bedding material of the driveway or sidewalk to be heated before a bed of sand is applied. The pavers can then be directly placed over the new heat cable.

Heated driveway in Idaho

If you’re current plans don’t involve a new driveway, Warmzone has the expertise to retrofit a system for you inexpensively. ClearZone radiant heat cable can be easily laid over existing asphalt and secured using clips and nails, followed by a few shovels of new asphalt. The good news–the cable only requires a ½ inch of asphalt, a minimal amount (when you consider the cost of an entirely new driveway) to operate properly and provide quick, efficient, effective snow removal.

A ClearZone snow melting system can also be installed in existing driveways using saw-cut technology. Grooves are cut into the existing concrete or asphalt to allow for a proper retrofit. The cable is laid into the grooves and then sealed with an epoxy topcoat (for asphalt, an additional layer of asphalt is added).
