Everything You Need to Know About HeatTrak PRO: How Does This Industrial Snow Melting System Work?

Snow accumulation is a common challenge during winter. However, with solutions like the HeatTrak PRO, snow management has been revolutionized for commercial spaces. This handy guide provides an in-depth understanding of how these mats work, answering your most common questions along the way.

First Things First: What Is the Difference Between HeatTrak Residential Products and HeatTrak PRO?

HeatTrak offers two primary product lines: Residential and PRO. The Residential mats are designed specifically for home use, focusing on typical household areas like front porches, stairs, and driveways. These are tailored to provide homeowners with safe, snow-free paths in their personal spaces. On the other hand, HeatTrak PRO is the heavy-duty counterpart designed explicitly for commercial and industrial applications. With its robust build and customized options, it's engineered to handle the high-traffic and diverse needs of businesses and public spaces.

At a Glance: HeatTrak PRO Basics

  1. Material: Crafted from robust rubber tailored to endure high-traffic zones.
  2. Size Options: Designed for broad spaces, they can also be custom-sized to particular dimensions.
  3. Connectivity: Their expansive design means vast areas are covered with minimal connector cables.
  4. Operating Cost: On average, each mat costs around $0.15 per hour. So, during a 4-6 hour snow day, the expense is about $0.60 to $0.90.
  5. Maintenance: Durably constructed to weather the winter season, these mats can be stationed outside for months.
  6. Activation: Best turned on during or immediately after snowfall. You have flexibility with operational options such as snow sensors and manual switches.
  7. Safety Features: Each mat is fitted with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) to swiftly cut off power if any anomalies arise.

      HeatTrak PRO: Features and Benefits Explained

      Material Composition

      The PRO mats are made of a heavy-duty rubber compound, ensuring longevity even under constant foot traffic. This material is not only resistant to wear and tear but also maintains its structural integrity in freezing conditions.

      Customization Options

      One of the standout features of the PRO series is its adaptability to specific needs. Whether you have a uniquely shaped entrance or a long walkway, HeatTrak can provide mats that fit seamlessly into your space, given they remain within the company's width and length parameters.

      Safety and Installation

      Safety remains paramount for HeatTrak. Each mat is equipped with a GFCI, ensuring that any electrical discrepancies result in an immediate power cut-off. Additionally, the mats come with pre-made grommet holes for easy and secure installation.

      Storage and Warranty

      When not in use, especially during off-seasons, the mats can be rolled (with the grit surface out) or laid flat and stored in a secure location. Each product also comes backed by a 2-year manufacturer's warranty, underscoring HeatTrak's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
