Addagrip EcoHeat Surfacing is the ‘first of its kind’ green energy thermal heating surface system.
In colder weather, the surface senses temperature decreases and automatically warms the resin bound surface using a renewable heat source. With the EcoHeat Surfaces Patented pipework installed under the Resin Bound surface, Addagrip EcoHeat Surfacing takes heat out of buildings via an air source heat pump. Whenever temperatures drop to 0ºC this heat will be used to warm the surface area around buildings to ensure no ice or snow build up.
When the weather warms up, the Addagrip EcoHeat Surfacing will be heated naturally by the sun, and, with a heat pump installed, the heat from the resin bound can be harnessed to help supply hot water for the home or other buildings such as hospitals and schools. A source of free energy for hot water.
Addagrip EcoHeat Surfacing can also be linked with solar panels to make it even more energy efficient – no need for gas, thus making it very carbon neutral.
The resin bound surface is permeable so there is no surface water, and it is SuDS compliant when used on a porous base build up. The finish is seamless and has excellent slip resistance making it comfortable and safe underfoot, especially in cold weather when recycled heating will provide frost-and ice-free paving.
The surface is low maintenance, hard wearing and available in a range of 7 colours to maximise heat capture and retention.
