Heat Trak HTM36-5 heated mats are portable so no expensive installations are required. The snow and ice that accumulates near entryways is constantly melted so that the area always remains clear and safe. Some people use calcium chloride to combat snow and ice, but these mats are a much better solution. They can't cause messes by being tracked inside and they help preserve sidewalks instead of destroying them over time.
The HTM36-5 traction mat measures 36 inches x 5 feet and runs on 120 volts. The electrically operated heating element is sandwiched between two protective surfaces of non-slip rubber. These mats are very durable and can be left out for the entire winter. Go ahead and plug it directly into a standard 120 volt outlet because it has its own equipment leakage circuit interrupter for your safety.
