Many homes and businesses are making good use of ther roofs or exterior decks by utilizing a pedestal supported deck system. Winter weather makes these areas unusable and causes drainage problems. Comfort Radiant now offers a patented solution that will prevent snow and ice from building on these areas allowing year-round use with no lack of drainage.
NOTE: Looking to heat pavers in a sand or mortar bed? Then visit our paver snow melting page.
There are no boilers or intricate networks of piping with massive quanitites of fittings, valves or manifolds that can and do fail. There is no added costs of having to hire an engineer to create a layout. No "certifed installers" are required and Comfort Radiant supports the installation from first request through start-up.
This system is supplied only as a complete package witch includes the pan, some accessories (not the pedestals), our exclusive Hott-Wire heating element, a GFEP Protected Control Relay Panel and an automatic activation sensor that ships with a complete layout to assist in installation. In addition to a complete package, Comfort Radiant will galdly offer system design and full project support. The heat generated from this system is efficiently transferred to the paver surface via the insulated aluminum pan below the paver while channeling the melt water to the surface below for drainage.
The pedestals are supplied and set in place. Our aluminum pans are set on their pedestals. The pan has channels for the Hott-Wire MI cable to sit in. The Hott-Wire cables are rolled out into the channels and then the pavers are placed directly on top of the pans. The pan is insulated from below to direct heat upward and into the pavers. The pans add less than 1/16” of height to the paver assembly, allowing the system to blend in seamlessly with the pedestal pavers.
The pan system is compatible with most of the pedestals already in the market including Bison, Archatrak and Tectura with new designs coming. This system is designed to match the profile of your paver system without affecting the profile.
We stock the all the standard size pans which are also available in custom designs and sizes. We gladly offer system design assistance.
Heatizon's Hott-Wire Mineral Insulated (MI) Cable heating element is a durable, insulated copper tubing that is chemical and gasoline resistant and is the only cable designed to work specifically with the Pedestal Paver Snow Melting system.
