Do Industrial Snow Melting Mats Work?

When it comes to snow melting, there are a few things that you should know. Industry insiders admit that the snow-melting market is not without some problems. For example, all of the above factors are leading to increasing demand for chemical-free ice melt.

The snow-melting industry is not without its problems. Yes, the mats do work—but they’re not a panacea for all applications. According to industry insiders, there are several considerations to keep in mind before you buy a snow-melting mat.

Safe Thaw was created as the ice management solution for tough winter environments. Ideal in commercial and industrial properties, shops, government agencies, bridges, and construction.

Problems With Industrial Snow Melting Mats

Maintainability: Snow melting mats are expensive to install and maintain (if you’re doing it yourself). If you’re looking for a low-maintenance solution, this might not be the best option for your particular application.

Cost: Snow melting mats aren’t cheap— there is a huge upfront cost that may dig a hole in your pocket.

First of all, if you live in an area with only light snowfall or rain instead of heavy snow, you probably don’t need the industrial-strength heating power of this type of system. Instead, you could consider using an ice melt.

Second, even if you do live in an area with heavy winter storms and lots of snow on the ground all winter long, not every industrial mat will work well on every surface—and they’re not designed for every environment either!

Thirdly -and most importantly- make sure there’s enough clearance around where these mats will sit so as not to trap moisture underneath them since this could cause mold growth over time due to trapped moisture under foot which could lead to health issues like asthma attacks or allergies later down road.

There Are A Number Of Reasons Why You Should Consider Switching To An Alternative, Chemical-Free Ice Melt. Consider The Following:

  • Salt is bad for the environment. While salt is effective at melting ice, salt also changes the pH balance in soil and water, making it more acidic. The more acidic the soil gets, the less likely plants and animals will be able to survive in that area. Over time this can lead to an overall decline in biodiversity (the variety of species).
  • Salt is bad for your pets. It’s important to keep our pets safe from harmful chemicals such as those found in some types of de-icers like rock salt because they’re much more sensitive than we humans tend to be!

Safe Industrial Strength Ice Melt

Safe Thaw is the ice melt that works best for industrial use. 

A modified crystalline amide core, glycol admixture, and traction agents are the essential components of Safe Thaw. Its outer layer quickly melts and liquefies, shattering the ice surface. After entering the ice structure, the crystalline amide core of Safe Thaw is broken down for quicker melting.
