Heat Mat, the underfloor heating and frost protection specialists, is now manufacturing a unique new 50W hot asphalt cable in the UK for driveway and ramp heating.
They are ideal for use in the construction of new driveways, ramps, parking or pedestrian zones or projects where areas are being resurfaced. The cables can withstand temperatures up to 200oC making them suitable for installations involving the pouring of asphalt.
Heat Mat are currently specifying the cables for schemes throughout the UK including a variety of car park ramps from multistory to parking bays.
These strong cables feature specialist high temperature insulation on the exterior that allows them to cope with the heat of the hot asphalt when it is poured. Temperatures of asphalt are usually between 180 - 200oC.
To achieve a heated drive or walkway where asphalt is going to be laid, a standard cable would need to be installed underneath a protective covering such as concrete before the asphalt finish can be poured, because standard cables cannot cope with the higher temperature.
By not having to install this additional layer costs are reduced and the heating cable can be laid closer to the final surface for a faster reacting system. Heat Mat has introduced this cable to offer a competitive solution for installations involving asphalt. Despite being more expensive to produce and purchase per unit, the reduced installation cost makes these exterior heating cables a cost-effective option for driveway, walkway or ramp heating especially for new build and car park construction.
Hot asphalt cables are ideal for installation beneath driveways, carparks, disabled access ramps, public walkways or access roads.
