Floor Heating Mat

Frost Heave Prevention Systems are designed to effectively prevent the build up of ice in the ground which can lead to frostheave in cold stores & blast freezers. This thermostatically controlled heat barrier will effectively prevent permafrost from reaching the base concrete in the coldstore.

Will frostheave happen to all freezers on ground?

We would suggest that if the floor incorporates 150 - 200 mm of polystyrene floor insulation or an equivalent, and the room is no more than 3 m wide, frost heave is unlikely. This may be increased to rooms up to 4 m wide provided that the sub base to the room is well drained to a depth of 600mm and even further if the floor is well elevated above the surrounding ground level.

We can supply and install heating systems, low voltage and mains, to suit any size of chiller or freezer

The most popular models we supply:  25mm & 12mm Modular Heater Mats – Low Voltage

  1. Suitable for all cold room applications.  The modular mat system comprises of the heater wires set into a foam board, and with its ability to be re-used, makes it the most cost-effective choice available. The mat system does not interfere with the assembly of modular cold stores.  They are simply laid onto any smooth level concrete or tile floor.
  2. Modular heating boards eliminate the need for sand/cement top screed and fixings are not required into the base concrete.
  3. Modular mats are as versatile as your cold room and are constructed from 350 grade Polyurethane insulation material which carries our special heavy duty stainless steel heating wires sheathed in PVC. These are thermostatically controlled to maintain the exact temperature level completely automatically
