Keeping accessibility ramps clear of snow and ice during the winter months is crucial for convenience and safety. Radiant snow melting systems have proven to be especially beneficial for businesses with accessibility ramps and high volumes of foot traffic. Because of their incline, ramps can become particularly hazardous during snowstorms. Given the reliabiity of automated radiant snow melting systems, many business owners have come to depend on radiant heat to enhance safety for their customers by keeping ramps and entry ways clear of ice and snow during winter weather.
Installing snow melting systems in ramps is a common practice for home and business owners because the systems activate when the weather conditions warrant. If a snowstorm hits during the night, customers can be assured that the ramp will be clear and safe for pedestrian traffic in the morning. The system utilizes sensors that detect temperature and precipitation, activating only when needed to ensure the ramp is clear and dry immediately following a storm. Business owners don't have to pay a snow removal service or go to work early to clear the walks before the business opens. For more information, contact a radiant heat expert today at 888-488-9276.
