Constant wattage slope heating
To keep your entrance and exit slopes free of snow and ice, we offer a global solution based on constant wattage heating cables, poured in the concrete or asphalt layer. Based on your plans, we work out the most optimal solution, comprising heating cables, control panel with regulation, mounting, commissioning and documentation.
As regulation, we foresee a snow- and ice sensor which reacts when it’s both cold and moist. An additional limiter in the concrete or asphalt prevents your system from staying unnecessarily activated.
Our experienced mechanics secure the heating cables on a galvanized netting that’s to be placed on the reinforcement steel. They connect the cold leads into the control panel. Everything is being programmed, measured and commissioned.
You receive a documentation package consisting of
- Since 1963 experience with the installation of this system.
- Maintenance free.
- Fully autonomous system.
- Fault localization and local repair possible in case of damage.
- Possible communication with building management system.
- Extremely reliable solution with long durability.
- The wattage remains constant in time, compared to self-regulating cables which lose power by aging.
- Energy saving thanks to limiter.
- Continuous display “READY” in control panel.
- Customization possible.

Snow and Ice Sensor
This snow and ice sensor can be programmed with for instance moist and temperature sensitivity. He is installed in the slope, leveled with the upper surface
The temperature limiter with sensor in the concrete/asphalt, will prevent unnecessary energy consumption by switching off the system at a floor temperature of for instance 5°C.
