SunTouch ProMelt™

ProMelt products are a simple way to eliminate snow and ice from surfaces.

ProMelt Mat is a complete heating mat consisting of a series resistance heating cable and a single power lead for easy single-point connection. The heating cable is pre-formed into a mat to provide consistent spacing and quick roll-out installation on the job site. The heating mat length cannot be cut to fit.

Nexans Outdoor Snow Melting Cables

Nexans History begins with the formation of the first company in 1897. More than a century of progress and innovation have occurred since the Swiss engineer Francois Borel made electric cables watertight by applying a coating of lead over bituminous paper. In the next 110 plus years, Nexans has grown and acquired key companies to allow Research and Development and new ideas to flourish.

nexans-churchFrom the original company Societe Francaise des Cables Electriques, next called ESWA (early name of the "Kabel" first manufactured Nexans Norway) . Then ESWA became Alcatel, who became the current Global Electric cable powerhouse that is Nexans Norway and the Company continues to progress, and to develop its leading technologies in the electric cable business.

The longevity of Nexans cables are un-matched worldwide. In 1951 Nexans electric radiant heating cables were installed to warm the feet and bodies of church goers in Oslo Norway and the Nexans system is still doing the job 55 years later (see above photo)

Nexans current systems offer the same (or even better) reliability and quality that have been working in Oslo , Norway for well over 50 years. Wherever and whenever you want warm tile or concrete or need to melt the snow from your driveway or your rooftop.

Why Choose Nexans radiant heat cable ?

Nexans developed and patented the technology to produce cables with continuous insulation extruded over the splice connecting the heating element to the cold lead. There is NO manual crimp connection or shrink tubes like most other cables. This means there is no chance for water intrusion into the splice and long life. Nexans electric radiant blue heat cable is designed to provide you with the comfort and convenience you deserve for a lifetime.

  • Among THICK cables, Nexans offers the best in floor warming or snow and ice melting - no manufacturer of cables can match the high standards of Nexans, the ONLY thick cable with Triple Protection for durability
  • Nexans has been manufacturing electric heating cable since 1928. Nobody else in the industry comes close.
  • Nexans cable is ideal for concrete installations Up to 3 times thicker than the competition & the most durable on the market
  • Nexans is the only heating cable with a waterproof metal sheath and 3 protective coverings to prevent damage during installation and operation
  • Quick delivery of Nexans cables. All standard size cables are In-Stock and the ship Same Day

Outdoor Surface heating and Electric Snow melting installation Instructions


Another possibility for Electric Radiant Heat Cables is the installation on any hard surface.

Here are a series of photos from a So. California Outdoor landscape project.

Concrete bench base that will be covered with tile for seating around the fireplace.

The fire will be warm, but your seat will be COLD - until the Heating Cable is turned on! Then, all will be well!

Here are a few close-ups of the installation. A hot glue gin works well for securing the Heating Cable to the concrete base. Next, the cables will be covered with mortar, and finally tiled.

 

 

Orbit Snow Melt Control Panels & Sensors Kits

Electric Snow Melting Cable Controls

The panels are designed to allow the system to be completely automated when using the DS-2B Snow Sensor is Installed.

Operational Sequences For RSMCK Series Snow Melt Control Panels And Sensors

One additional feature added the this series panel is the manual override timer which allows the user to bypass the automated Snow Sensor and operate the system in a manual mode. The hold timer (located on the front of the control panel) can be manually set for a maximum of 4 hours in order to melt skim ice or drifting snow.

Another feature is the red “Heat On” light. When lit the user knows that the system is in operation. This indicator light will also alert the user when the system has been turned on accidentally and prevent unexpected damage to this system.


Specifications:

• Extremely Economical For Snow Melting Applications

• NEMA 1 UL Listed Panel Box (Indoor Rating)

• 100 Amp Capacity (Two 50Amp Contractors)

• Aerial Mounted Automatic Snow SwitchRSMCK-2C Control Panel Kit

• Pre-Wired And Numbered Terminal Connections

• Wiring Diagram

• “Heat On” Pilot Light

• 4 Hour Manual Override Timer

Automated DS-2B Series Snow Sensor

Heating cables are activated when the temperature is 38 degrees F or below and also moisture is present. When the sensor no longer detects either of the above conditions the DS-2B continues heating the snow melting cables for a maximum period of 90 minutes by default in order to compensate for the site differences. The manual timer may be used at anytime in order to override the system.

Severe Cold Pre-Heat Operation

>> Email Us << For More Information

In the event of prolonged periods of severe cold, (4 continuous days of 10-15 degrees F or below) ground temperatures can get extremely low. Orbit Radiant Heating suggest pre-heating the surface previous to any expected event. If possible, manually turn on the system using the timer 3-4 hours previous to the expected event. This will allow the system to have a “head start” in warming up the unusually cold surface. Pre-heating will help insure that the surface is properly conditioned for the maximum performance.
