Snow Melting Systems

Warmzone carries the highest quality heated driveway and radiant snow melting options available. The industry leading ClearZone electric snowmelt system is commonly installed in both commercial and residential applications. From large heated driveways and parking areas to custom sized walkways, ramps and loading docks, ClearZone systems are versatile and can be easily customized.

The fully automated system includes the heat cable, activation device (snow sensor), contactor panel, and marker plate (as required by the NEC). These electric systems are also maintenance free and relatively easy to install.

Warmzone Snow Melting Heat Cable

ClearZone electric snowmelt cable is extremely durable and versatile and is used for a variety of radiant heating applications. A specially designed version of the twin conductor, single point connection heat cable is also available for installation in hot asphalt applications. The heat cable features a copper metal sheath and fluoropolymer conductor insulation with a polyolefin outer sheath, and carries a 10-year warranty. While ClearZone heat cable is also available in mats, the radiant heating cable on the spool allows greater installation flexibility with custom layouts. The cable is often used for large snow melting jobs in unconventionally shaped areas where only free standing cable can reach.

ClearZone Radiant Snow Melting Mats

Available in 3- and 4- inch spacing (and custom spacing), the ClearZone heating mats feature cable that is pre-spaced for accurate spacing and fast, easy installation. The electric radiant heating mats are laid out and secured, and then the medium is applied directly over the cable. CZ snow melting systems are popular among homeowners and commercial construction professionals alike.

The heating mat features industry-leading heat cable that is pre-spaced and sold in 'rolls' for easy "roll-out" installation. The tape backing of the heating mats can be cut on site so that the mats can be turned and installed around corners and odd layouts when necessary.

Concrete Heated Driveways

The ClearZone snow melting system is the premier snow melting solution for concrete heated driveways, sidewalks, loading docks, ramps, etc. The durable heat cable is capable of withstanding the rigorous stress of heavy concrete pours to provide efficient and reliable snow melting for all types of concrete applications.

The electric snowmelt system utilizes an advanced snow sensor (either an aerial mount or in-ground mount) to activate the system when needed, making it fully automated. The system also features a contactor panel that controls line and load terminal blocks and operating contactors. The activation device also features manual override capability to deal with snow drifts or areas in shade where water has frozen.

Asphalt Driveway Heating

Specially constructed ClearZone heat cable is designed to withstand the hot temperatures of new asphalt construction jobs. (The cable is rated up to 460 degrees for up to 10 minutes.) Installation of the radiant snow melting system is easy. The asphalt is spread directly over the rugged ClearZone heat cable and then compacted. The embedded, fully automated, radiant heat snow melting system provides a discreet, reliable snowmelt solution for your driveway and/or sidewalks. In addition to new asphalt construction applications, existing asphalt (and concrete) driveways can be retrofitted with the ClearZone snowmelt system.

Heated Stone and Brick Paver Driveways

The ClearZone snow melting system is also commonly used to provide snowmelt for brick and stone paver driveways and sidewalks. The cable is laid out in the bedding material of the driveway or sidewalk to be heated, and then a bed of sand or paver dust is applied over the cable. The pavers are then placed directly on top of the heat cable. The heating cable effectively warms the pavers to prevent any snow accumulation. The snowmelt system is fully automated and energy-efficient.

Retrofit Snow Melting Applications

The ClearZone snow melting system can also be installed in existing driveways. By using concrete saw-cut technology, grooves are cut into existing concrete or asphalt driveways and cable is then placed in the grooves. Then, at relatively little cost, you have a driveway retrofitted with a radiant heating system. Radiant snow melting systems can also be installed in existing asphalt driveways by placing the cable on top of the old asphalt and then installing a new layer of asphalt on top of that. (The photo on the bottom left shows a runaway truck ramp being retrofitted with a radiant snow melting system, using saw-cut technology.)

When installing in saw-cut grooves, ClearZone radiant heat cable is laid into the grooves and then sealed with an epoxy topcoat. For additional traction to increase safety, a sand broadcast can be applied to the surface before the epoxy cures if desired. More info on ClearZone snow melting systems.
