World’s Leading Manufacturer and Inventor of Snow Melting Mats
HeatTrak stands proudly as the unrivaled pioneer and foremost manufacturer of cutting-edge snow and ice melting mats for both residential and commercial use. For more than two decades, we have devoted ourselves to the meticulous art of crafting and refining outdoor heating solutions, resulting in an unparalleled level of expertise. Our unwavering dedication to your safety and the well-being of your walkways sets us apart in every conceivable way.
I have been adding one or more HeatTraks a year to my homes to reduce or eliminate my snow and ice removal services/chores. They are very simple to install and work as advertised. They give me peace of mind to ensure safety for guests and delivery services.
"The mats were a perfect solution for the steel grated walkways around the facility. The mats kept them clear of snow and ice and we didn’t have to worry about the employees slipping and falling."
Work as shown, I was skeptical but we have repeatedly received over 6 inches of snow each storm this year, and these mats remain clear. They are placed on our wood deck, and we've had a lot of ice, the mats are keeping the walkway free of ice and are often completely dry.
"The heated mats and stair treads did a great job keeping ice and snow off the main entranceway. We were also pleasantly surprised to see how well the mats stood up to the hundreds of Alcoa employees who walked over them every morning."
Outstanding product. I have 3 mats that clear the way from our door to a hot tub and our feet stay warm without shoveling!
"We were extremely happy with the HeatTrak mats. They did an excellent job keeping the entrances ice free for our students and faculty."
What happens to the water when the snow melts?
The best way to use the HeatTrak mats is to turn them on before the snow begins to fall. This way, there will not be any water accumulation when the snow melts, because the snowflakes will evaporate as soon as they land on the mat. However, you can turn the mats on after the snow has already fallen on them. In this case, give the mat a few hours to melt through the snow. When the snow melts, there will be a slight water run-off, but the run-off will go under the snow that surrounds the mat. Also, there will be small puddles on the mat until the water completely evaporates. But have no fear, these small puddles will be beneath the non-slip treading, so there will not be any slip hazard. Eventually, all the water will evaporate.
Can the mats be placed on any surface?
Both our HeatTrak Mats and HeatTrak Pro (Commercial) Mats can be placed on many surfaces such as:
- Stamped Concrete*
*Barrier required. A thin layer of insulation, or "a barrier", is required under the heat mats to prevent heat penetration. The following are suggestions for insulation:
Consider a pressure-treated plywood segment (Helpful Hint: Home Depot and Lowe's offer complimentary cutting services), with a thickness of just 1/4". Insulation options also include 1/4"-thick polyethylene or neoprene foam.
How do the mats work?
By utilizing durable rubber like material with heating technology inside, the mats are heated to a constant temperature that melts existing snow/ice. Plug the mats in, turn them on and you’re ready to go!
Can I lay the mats on existing snow/ice?
Our snow and ice melting mats release heat from the top and bottom which allows you to place our mats on existing snow/ice. Keep in mind if you do so allow our mats to melt the existing snow/ice before walking on the mats.
Do I need a power unit?
Yes, a HeatTrak power unit is required for each daisy chain series / configuration. Not included with walkway mats & treads. Included with entrance mats.
Do I roll the mats up after each use or can they be left outside throughout winter?
The mats are very durable and are engineered to be left out all winter long. The winter elements will not harm the mat in any way.
