While shoveling snow and salting ice may be a way of life for most residents in Anchorage, there is another way to deal with the abundance of snow each winter. Take some of the stress out of the cold season and reduce the chances of slip-and-fall accidents by installing a radiant snow melting system in the driveway, sidewalks or outdoor steps.
Radiant snow melting systems provide an effective way to heat driveways, sidewalks, ramps, steps, bridges, and more. For well over a decade Warmzone has been providing industry leading snow melting systems and radiant heat solutions throughout Northern America. The systems are reliable, fully automated and maintenance free.
Electric driveway heating systems also feature silent, energy efficient operation and require no extra space or mechanical room (such as with hydronic systems). The ClearZone snow melting system is a favorite among professional builders because of its relatively simple installation and ability to be easily customized.
The ClearZone driveway heating snow melting system features durable twin-conductor, single point connection resistance heat cable. The heat cable has a copper metal sheath and fluoropolymer conductor insulation with a polyolefin outer sheath, and carries a 10-year warranty. The cable is available individually or pre-spaced in mats for quick, easy “roll-out” installation.
For heating concrete driveways, CZ cable is laid out over the area to be heated and secured to the remesh with zip ties. Mesh-Up plastic “chairs” support the remesh, lifting it off the ground and keeping it in place during the concrete pour. Attaching the cable to the remesh ensures that it remains in place as concrete is poured so that the heat cable remains ideally positioned about two inches from the finished surface. Specially designed ClearZone cable is also available for hot asphalt installations. The heat cable features rugged outerjacket to withstand the hot temperature and compression demands of asphalt installations. Another common application is that of heating brick and stone pavers.
For each application, the system can be custom designed to meet the unique layout and available power. Our experts have designed systems for large Department of Transportation and government projects to custom commercial and residential applications. When you deal with Warmzone, you’re dealing with seasoned professionals who understand all the aspects involved in purchasing and installing a radiant heat system.
Professional System Design
A snow melting system in Anchorage must be designed to perform well under the winter conditions specific to the Alaskan winters. For example, systems in the Hillside neighborhoods of Anchorage must be designed differently than snow melting systems in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This is why it is important to
