If you are in an area with snow and ice, you will definitely want STEP Mat®
This falls in to the why-hasn’t-this-been-around-forever category. Electro Plastics, Inc., a US-based leader in radiant heat and snow melt systems, has developed an ingenious, attractive entry mat designed to overcome just about every concern a business has about foot traffic, snow and slush. The STEP Mat is a safe, low-voltage 24V radiant heat mat made of very durable, heavy duty carpet for entry areas for all types of businesses. The energy-efficient heating elements are self-regulating so they cannot overheat.
The mats heat with just enough temperature to reduce slipping hazards and eliminate tracking in of harsh ice melting chemicals that can stain interior flooring. While the standard mat measures 6’x10’ and comes with a 10’ power cord and plug-in 120V transformer, they can also be custom-made to size for any entrance, walkway or pathway. Full-color company logos can be imprinted on them, adding a strong image to all arriving guests. Multiple mats can be placed side by side to cover the desired heated surface.
In a controlled test the STEP Mat was placed in a walk-in refrigerator/freezer. The temperature in the room was 13 degrees Fahrenheit, while the mat maintained a 39 degree temperature.
