Domestic driveway heating in Dobcross

Domestic driveway heating in Dobcross

A Heat Mat driveway heating system was installed to provide safe access to a property in Dobcross, near Oldham, Greater Manchester.

The driveway of the house is very steep and could pose a danger in winter, when the owner’s car often slides on ice down to the main road below. To enable safe access and prevent a vehicle losing grip, two tyre tracks at the edges of the driveway will heat the access in winter conditions.

A 7mm exterior cable from Heat Mat was specified, along with a ground moisture sensor, and 47Amp dual zone thermostat for temperature control.

The cable was attached to reinforced construction mesh, using robust cable ties, before being covered with sand. The driveway was finished with decorative paving blocks.
