underfloor heating

Overview

   DESCRIPTION

In the winter months, serious injury can occur from the formation of ice on work platforms in warehouse loading bays or on entrance walkways to busy public buildings. This potential hazard can easily be minimised by installing a snow melting cable.

 <iceprev_before_aft_image.png>
This will quickly melt any snow that falls providing clear access for pedestrians and vehicles on pavements and drives.

MPSV heating cables are rated at 20 Watts/m and are used for ice and snow melting of outdoor areas and other applications where the cable is embedded in concrete.

The most common application is heating ramp or loading platforms in factories and warehouses, where a snow melting cable can reduce the risk of accidents and ensure work can be carried out at all times.

However, there are a wide range of places that can benefit from an ice and snow melting cable. These include: car parks; garage drive ways; pavements and outdoor steps.

System Construction


Introduction
MPSV cables should be installed in a sand bed or concrete layer. For effective and efficient operation it is best to install a layer of insulation material below the cable. This will prevent heat being lost to the sub-soil. A suitable compression & moisture resistant polyurethane insulation is recommended.



   CONCRETE

 <ecoflex-ice-protection-concrete2.jpg>

Snow melting cables can be laid and spaced using the ECOFIX HD fixing band. The heating cable should be installed between two layers of concrete. Install the cable over the bottom layer using the ECOFIX HD strip and then pour the top layer of concrete. The concrete mixture must not contain sharp stones as these may damage the cable.



   CONCRETE PAVIORS

 <ecoflex-ice-protection-pavior2.jpg>

Care should be taken when installing under concrete paviors. To be effective the cables have to be installed close to the concrete pavior, typically in a 30mm layer of sand



   ASPHALT

 <ecoflex-ice-protection-asphalt2.jpg>

To protect the cables from the heat of the asphalt during installation, the cables should first be covered with a 30mm minimum layer of fine sand or a layer of concrete. The asphalt should be allowed to cool to 120 – 140oC before it is laid. It is not recommended that heavy duty rollers or laying machines are used in the laying of the asphalt due to the risk of damaging the cables.
