Heated Surface Systems
Hardscape Design by DaVinci installs radiant heated cables for concrete, asphalt and under pavers. Heat everything from driveways, walkways, ramps, crosswalks, bridges, landing pads, decks, courtyards and even large parking areas are becoming common for residences and businesses alike. Adding a Heated Driveway or walkway to your home or business will add safety and value to your property. Custom heat any area, any size.
Heated driveway systems are controlled by a wall-mounted control box for electric system. The Heated Systems can operate with manual and/or automatic activation devices. Available automatic sensors include aerial-mounted or pavement-mounted snow switches (recommended for Car washes). The sensor activates the system when there is moisture present and the temperature is below approximately 38 degrees. The radiant heated Systems also include a manual timer to preheat an area before a large storm to curb snow and ice accumulation.
Why install a driveway/walkway heating system?
Some of the obvious benefits are, of course, not having to shovel your driveway again, avoiding injury due to slippery surfaces, and having the confidence that your driveway will be cleared, regardless of the weather conditions. Other notable benefits include adding value to your home, preserving the life of your driveway, and avoiding damage to the bordering landscape from harmful salts and chemicals.
