Warmly Yours Radiant Heating added two new snow-melting cables to its radiant heating portfolio. The new 277- and 208-volt snow-melting cables were developed for commercial applications. The 277-volt cable is available in nine different lengths, and the 208-volt cable is available in seven different lengths.
“These new cables round out our snow-melting portfolio by bringing us into the commercial market,” said Julia Billen, president and owner of WarmlyYours Radiant Heating. “They offer many advantages over 120- and 240-volt systems that greatly suit commercial projects.”
For instance, both the 277- and 208-volt cables have the ability to cover large areas with 50 watts per square foot (at 3-inch spacing). However, the 277-volt cables are able to do so at a lower amperage than a 120-, 208- or 240-volt system. Plus, a 277-volt cable minimizes the number of circuits that a system requires and takes up less space in a breaker box than a 208- or 240-volt breaker. Both cable voltages feature extended 50-foot cold leads, which also minimize the number of junction boxes needed for each system.
These free-form cables offer maximum flexibility because they can be laid out to avoid things like planter boxes, pillars and other obstructions. The twin-conductor, 1/4-inch-thick cables also ensure energy-efficient operation and strong, steady heat for a dependable and efficient performance when it’s needed. They can be installed under asphalt, concrete or in mortar under pavers.
