Project Type: Heated Driveway
Location: Leeds – Yorkshire
Construction: Tarmac base – Heated driveway mats – 60mm tarmac surface coat
System: Bespoke manufactured heated driveway mats
Size: 37metre long driveway / ramp
Power: 3 x 4455Watt heated driveway mats
Ramp down to underground parking at residential property
A snow and ice melting system was required for this very steep and sharply curved ramp down to a basement parking area, to make sure the residents have safe access all year round.
HDS designed and installed 2 x 0.6metre wide heated tracks on this 37meter long ramp, to make sure the residents have safe access to the basement garage/ parking area.
Using heated tracks compared to heating the full width of the driveway meant we could keep the power consumption and also the running cost to a minimum.
The system will be controlled by a HDS fully automatic ice and snow melting control using 2 ground moisture sensors and one air temperature sensor.
