Radiant heat, snow melt and deicing for industrial and commercial buildings
Electro Plastics, Inc., a US-based leader in radiant heat and snow melt systems, has released a new line voltage system used for radiant heat, snow melt and deicing specifically for interior and exterior industrial and commercial buildings that are typically large, concrete structures.
STEP® Heat Trace Line Voltage is designed for larger projects and simply connects to the STEP AC Controller, eliminating the need for dozens of transformers in a large warehouse. It is available in 230 V and can be used with the STEP Touch® thermostat and exterior sensor. It is available in various lengths and widths and if needed, be grounded with an optional STEP Sheath®.
Made of homogeneous, semi-conductive polymer, a self-regulating PTC nanotechnology allows the STEP Heat Trace Line Voltage to heat with maximum power in cold environments, using less electricity as the temperature increases. This minimizes power consumption and reduces operating costs compared to conventional electric cable systems.
It can also be used under concrete for snow melt and/or deicing, eliminating the need for shoveling, as well as in bridges and overpasses to reduce accidents due to slippery roads.
Watch for our ProudGreenHome white paper in the coming weeks on STEP Heat Trace Line Voltage.
