High-traffic areas and squares which are exposed to the weather are some of the areas on which particularly high demands are placed in terms of reliability and safety – 24 hours a day, all year round. These areas are often exposed to extreme external influences, especially in the cold winter months: snow, freezing rain or hail can turn squares, roads and paths into dangerous skid zones within seconds. In such cases, immediate action is necessary, as the safety of pedestrians and vehicles takes top priority. Triflex has now developed a coordinated solution that protects ramps, spiral ramps, entrances and exits, roads and paths against the effects of weather, making them safe for vehicles and pedestrians. Thanks to the combination of Triflex liquid-applied waterproofing and the Triflex HeatTec heating laminate, surfaces are uniformly heated and given long-term protection against damage and moisture. The result is ice-free and, ultimately, safe paths and driveways.
The operating voltage for the heating is 230 V. The benefits of a coating that protects the concrete against environmental influences are combined with a heating system that keeps surfaces free from snow and ice. The system keeps energy consumption to a minimum, as the control unit only responds to the reference temperatures of the road surface, and heating is only activated with the additional presence of moisture.
Benefits and application examples of heatable surfaces
|The benefits of heatable surfaces||Areas of application:|
|Minimised risk of accidents for vehicles and pedestrians||Ramps, spiral ramps, entrance and exit areas|
|No damage to the surfaces made by grit or sand,
since no snow clearance or gritting services are required
|No frost damage to the substrate||Pedestrian crossings|
|“De-icing salts prohibited”
which applies in many councils is not an issue
|Extra convenience for users and owners||Outdoor steps, terraces and footpaths|
|Winter safety||Helicopter landing pads|
