preventing slip and falls

When you think of winter, what comes to mind? Landscapes blanketed in snow? Ice skating on a frozen pond? Or icy slush covered sidewalks and weeks old snow piled up in parking lots? As beautiful as winter can be, it also brings hazards.

Fall injuries make up over 20% of emergency room visits each year, costing an estimated $13-14 million in the United States. While there are many potential causes for a slip or fall, snow and ice are not to be overlooked.

For business owners looking to protect their employees and customers, it can be challenging to keep up with mother nature and remove all snow and ice. The same is true for homeowners desiring to protect themselves and their families.

What better way to manage snow and ice buildup than to eliminate it altogether? Electric radiant heat can be installed in driveways, sidewalks, stairs, ramps, bridges and many other surfaces. Snow melting systems can remove the need to shovel and scrape snow and ice, giving peace of mind.

Did you know heating cables can be retrofit into an existing surface? A snow melting system can be installed without tearing out your existing sidewalk or driveway. The cable is installed via saw cuts and then sealed, saving the cost of replacing the surface.

To complete a carefree snow melting system, Warmquest offers temperature and moisture sensors that automatically turn the system on during snowstorms. Reduce the risk and liability of slip and fall injuries with a snow melting system from Warmquest.
