Snow Melt Controllers & Sensors

Some controllers are not rated for outdoor installation. Ground sensors are designed for flush installation with the outdoor heated surfaces. Contact an expert for guidance.
How To Install NeverFreeze Driveway & Walkway Mats
This overview does not substitute for a full reading of the Installation Manual.
The below steps will take you from beginning to end simply, but please refer to the full Installation Manual or call our experts to go over a more detailed installation plan.
NeverFreeze Snow Melting Mats and Cables are an easy way to eliminate the need for shoveling snow or using harmful de-icing chemicals, and NeverFreeze is compatible with almost any type of driveway, walkway, or patio material.
Before beginning your installation:
- Plan the locations of all components, such as your ground sensor, relay box, and controller.
- Take notes on locations and layout of mats and other components for future reference.
- Consider the full process of the installation of the surface material before beginning.
Choose Driveway / Walkway Surface
1Prepare the installation area
- Compact the base layer and if needed the base layer of asphalt.
- Remove any debris that will damage the heating elements.
2Lay out the heating mats
- Unroll the mats and position as needed.
- If laying tire tracks, measure space between tires on your cars. If one car has a wider space between tires, you can use wider mats as to accommodate both. You can also use one wider mat and one thin mat to minimize power consumption.
- Mark the placement of the mats for future reference.
3Install conduits for electrical leads and sensors
- Sensor housing must be positioned between heating elements.
- Prepare conduit before applying final asphalt layer.
- Ensure the leads and heaters do not overlap.
4Apply the asphalt to the driveway
- Always shovel a layer of asphalt onto the heating mats before driving any equipment on top.
- When working, use lightest equipment available as not to damage the heating cables.
- Be careful not to nick or damage cable while raking asphalt over cables.
5Make the electrical connections
- Always use a licensed electrician to make the final electrical connections.
6Allow the system to melt the snow as it falls
- Enjoy never shoveling again!
1Prepare the installation area
- Mark the heating area
- Remove any debris that will damage the heating elements
2Lay out the heating mats
