Rugged Snow-Melting Solution for Truck Ramp
The most rugged, flexible, cut-to-length heater cables were selected for this industrial facility truck ramp. The ability to withstand vibration from commercial trucks, salt and other corrosive chemicals, and thermal expansion of the ramp assures heater cable life that will exceed that of the concrete ramp.
Cables are easily attached directly to rebar. A 2-stage pour is not required. Cable reels of 1000 feet each are provided and cut to length in the field. Field conditions often require modifications in cable lengths and layout from the original engineering design.
Heater cable power connections and terminations are above grade in accessible junction boxes. Only the rugged polyolefin jacket of the cable is in the slab. Rakes, shovels, and stone will not damage the heater cable. There are no buried splices that can fail due to poor manufacturing, handling, or galvanic corrosion.
