Pipelife - always part of your life
Winter months often minimize accessibility and functionality for outdoor facilities. However with the right systems in place, you can take full control of your facility’s safety and usability, by preventing snow and ice build-up.
Regardless of ground size, surface type or sub-zero conditions, an outdoor hydronic underfloor heating system will help keep your grounds hazard free at all times, without the need for snow-shoveling equipment, heavy-duty machinery or deicers (e.g. salts). This means you can protect your surfaces, such as concrete, asphalt and other paving materials, from corrosion and damage.
Create a safer environment
Provides a safe solution for keeping outside areas where people walk and drive snow and ice free. Ideal for garage entrances with ramps and slopes, or public spaces such as heavy traffic crossroads, roundabouts, schools, kindergartens, retirement homes, hospitals and office premises.
Lower your operating costs
A well-designed hydronic system is often less expensive to run than hiring motorized snow removal equipment. With the ability to melt snow and ice with little heat, even when temperatures drop as low as minus 30 degrees, you need little energy and keep your operating costs down.
Optimize your energy efficiency
Hydronic heating is incredibly energy efficient with the ability to operate two or more separate piping systems from a single hydronic boiler. The energy usage from hydronic heating can be up to 70% less than other methods such as electricity dependent heating systems.
A durable system with minimal maintenance
Pipelife hydronic heating pipes are made from certified and reinforced thermoplastic to withstand harsh chemicals such as salts and anti-freeze agents. The pipe's reinforced properties further limit the risk of the system becoming soft at high operating temperatures or brittle at low outdoor temperatures.
Compatible with eco heating methods
Hydronic systems are compatible with a variety of heat sources, such as geothermal heat pumps and solar collection systems, making them extremely resourceful in terms of energy consumption and cost. You can also share one heating source by combining the outdoor heating system with the indoor heating system.
Preserves your ground surfaces
Without the need for winter service vehicles and harmful substances such as salts and anti-freeze chemicals, which can cause damage, hydronic systems help to prolong the lifespan of your ground surfaces such as asphalt, stone, concrete, compacted gravel and pavers; in addition to artificial and natural grass for sports fields.
Plastic has a bad reputation these days. However, the use of plastic for plumbing installations in and around buildings can be very beneficial not just for the user, but also for the environment, especially when compared to other materials.
