Ramp heating system for luxury apartment project in Beaconsfield, North London
The developer was looking for an ice and snow melting system to secure year round access down the steep curved ramp to the underground parking area without having to manually clear snow and use salt.
HDS designed and installed 2 x 1.2metre wide heated tracks on this 40meter long, curved ramp,
Using heated tracks compared to heating the full width of the ramp meant we could keep the power consumption and also the running cost to a minimum.
The system is controlled by a HDS fully automatic ice and snow melting control using 2 ground moisture sensors and one air temperature sensor.
