Saltnet // Ice + Snow Melting Mat
SaltNets® are mats that melt snow and ice on contact without the need for electricity, or overuse of corrosive agents. Safe and reusable, SaltNets® work by releasing a proprietary mix of proven melting agents, to prevent snow accumulation on the surface.
Traditional applications of salt rocks or other melting agents can cause unnecessary mess, and can be dangerous for pets, but this mat is non-toxic and safe to use winter after winter. The patented design also releases exactly the right amount of melting agents as needed, so no amount of snow goes unmelted, and no extra chemicals are released. No shoveling needed. And no more puddles in your house.
The secret behind a Saltnets® mat lies in its tube-like construction. Each mat features durable, 100% nylon construction which is stitched together in tubes and stuffed with melting agents to provide even distribution. Free of toxic chemicals, this mat can provide ice-melting action by using a stuffed blend of sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, and calcium chloride.
A Saltnets® mat works by drawing in moisture and reacting with its melting agent to provide heat. Once the mat heats up, it will melt snow and ice, creating a brine that is then wicked around the mat. The mat then dries up and gets ready for its next round of winter precipitation. There are two ways you can use a Saltnets® mat: you can either lay it down before winter precipitation occurs or you can wait and place it on top of previously fallen snow or ice. If you lay it down before precipitation, it can be used to prevent snow and ice from bonding to the ground’s surface. Either way, the mat will begin melting unwanted areas of ice and snow and leave you with a nice, clear patch.
This version is especially designed to cover stairs, for extra safety on uneven footing.
