This heating element is designed to melt snow and ice on entrances, walkways, driveways, ramps, patios, etc. The snowmelt expectations have to be determined (Class 1, 2 or 3). Drainage is as important as melting; determine where the melted snow/ice has to go to.
STEP® Snowmelt is protected by a 12-mil chemically inert and dielectric insulation to ensure that the heating element is protected against alkalis and salts.
The element does not have slots. If slots are required to achieve a better bond to the top covering, then element MEP-30-2-70W-24V with slots may be used.
