STEP® Snowmelt 9″

STEP® Snowmelt – 9″ (23cm): Heated Stairs

This heating element is designed to keep stairs free from snow and ice.

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.

This heating element is designed for areas that require more narrow elements, 9” instead of 12” (30 cm) due to available width.

✔ Strong, thin and flexible lightweight element with an impermeable membrane that protects against physical damages and aggressive materials
✔ Operates on 24 volts (AC/DC); Connect to a power supply, solar or wind power
✔ Self-regulating; As the material gets warmer, less electricity passes through the plastic – therefore it is extremely energy-efficient
✔ Easy to install; roll out the elements and cut to size on the job site, connect wires to power supply and elements
✔ Maintenance-free when installed
