Doraville, GA, January, 2018—With deep roots in the Denver, CO, area, U.S. Bank employs more than 2,700 people and serves more than 930,000 customers at some 150 branches statewide. The company recently installed HeatTrak Snow Melting Mats at two of these branches when both sites suffered slip-and-fall accidents on their premises.
“Yearly snowfall in the Denver area averages 57 inches, so accidents are a constant concern,” said Chris Coufal, corporate real estate manager at U.S. Bank. “Our major priority is to keep people safe, but traditional methods of melting snow and ice weren’t doing the job at these two branches. Along with the increase in safety the HeatTrak mats provide, since we installed them on the entryway ramps there our maintenance expenses at both branches have gone down, as well.”
HeatTrak’s snow melting mat systems are designed to prevent snow and ice accumulation at industrial facilities and commercial environments, according to senior HeatTrak product specialist Ryan Williams. He explained that HeatTrak mats prevent new snow from accumulating by melting it on contact at a rate of two inches per hour.
“Our snow melting mats are durable, economical, and stand up to heavy foot traffic. They have made a significant difference at these two U.S. Bank branches by keeping their entrance ramps clear of snow and ice without compromising on cleanliness. The issue they had is a common one at facilities with heavy foot traffic. Our mats have become the ‘go-to’ solution to address this problem,” Williams said.
