Frost Heave Prevention

Frost can damage many forms of concrete building structures.

Cold storage freezers are a common problem area, requiring heat tracing cables to eliminate this problem.
Both MI cables and SR Self regulating heating cables can be employed to solve this problem.

MI cables can be installed during new construction, and renovations.

SR cables can be pulled into embedded conduits in retrofit installations.

Additonal areas requiring this technology include:

  • Cryogenic tanks, above and underground.
  • Food storage freezers.

Similar installations and designs can be installed in Ice / skating rinks.
