Snow Melting Accessories Description
This USA-made embeddable attachment grid for installing snow melting cables under pavers or on top of existing concrete surfaces such as stairs, walkways, or driveways. The primary use of this snow melting grid is to provide a framework to attach the snow melting cables to—typically with cable ties (sold separately). This allows for you to maintain proper spacing between the heating elements which will prevent overheating or "cold spots". Another benefit is that it allows you to control the depth of the heating elements to ensure optimal performance.
In addition to being embedded under pavers or on top of existing concrete surfaces, this product can be embedded under bluestone or under tiles with thinset. Please note that this product should not be used with snow melting mats or in projects involving asphalt or a new concrete pour.
This product comes as a 3' x 50' with a 1" x 1" square grid that allows for quick cable installation. The grid can also be cut in the field to accommodate different shapes.
This snow melt grid is composed of high-molecular weight, high-tenacity multi-filament polyester yarns that are woven into a stable network placed under tension and coated with PVC. Product has an additional benefit like bi-directional expansion strength that is commonly used by landscaping and paving contractors.
