Using industrial grade mineral insulated or self regulating cable, Hott-Wire can be installed in new pour concrete, asphalt, in a sand or stone dust bed under pavers, or retrofit into existing surfaces via saw cut. Hott-Wire can be designed to meet the most extreme ASHRAE snow load requirements.


Warmquest's Hott-Wire probides maintenance free snow melting for heated driveways and sidewalks

Hott-Wire is our line voltage snow melting product and is available in industrial grade mineral insulated or a self regulating cables. These systems can be installed in new pour concrete, asphalt, pavers and retrofit into existing surfaces via saw cut.

Customized Snow Melting

Hott-Wire systems are maintenance free and are customized to ASHRAE standards to fit any application in any region. We take pride in designing systems for our customers based on ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers) snow melting requirements by region. We use our performance and cost effective ASHRAE design standard rather than a “one size fits all” solution, which eliminates over or undersizing these systems.

How it Works

Hott-Wire systems use either a fixed length industrial grade mineral insulated cable or a cut to length self regulating cable. Cable output in watts/lineal foot is determined by project requirements. We specify cable spacing to meet the required watts/sqft per ASHRAE snow melting data for particular regions. Hott-Wire utilizes Relay Panels or Contactor Panels to activate multiple circuits on one activation device for larger projects. Smaller projects can utilize the activation device to switch power to the heating element.

ReliabilityHott-Wire provides a heated driveway for snow melting and safety

With no moving parts to replace or maintain, the Hott-Wire snow melting system is virtually maintenance free. Hott-Wire products carry a 10 year warranty at an economical price point.
