Safety Guidelines

The safety and reliability of any snow melting system depends on proper design, installation, and testing. Incorrect installation or mishandling of the product can cause damage to the heating cable, system components and property, and can create a risk of fire or shock. The guidelines and instructions contained in this manual are important. Follow them carefully to minimize these risks and to ensure that the SnowMeltz® System performs as designed.

The SnowMeltz systems are engineered to achieve specific heat output for the square footage to which they are designed. Cutting the heating cable to fit a space is extremely dangerous and can result in a fire. Do not cut the heating cable to avoid an obstacle or fixture, use other methods as described in this manual. Make sure to avoid damaging/cutting the heating cable during/after the installation of the substrate by being aware of all heating cable locations.
