Martinson-Nicholls, a leader with innovation in the floor matting industry, is offering a prewired outdoor mat and tread system for steps and landings. Many combinations of steps and mats can be provided to suit most customer requirements.
Martinson-Nicholls heated mat and stair tread systems keep outdoor steps and landings free of snow and ice without shoveling or chemical application. These removable mat and tread systems can be supplied with different cord placement, different numbers of treads, and a thermostat accessory for increased flexibility and economy.
The mats and stair treads are made from a high grade, natural rubber with a textured, slip-resistant surface. The stair treads and mats come with grommets so that the system can be mechanically anchored in place. They may be removed in the off season, or the UV protected rubber mats may be left outside year-round. Cord placement can be provided either on the right (standard) or left, and most are shipped so that all the customer has to do is anchor and plug in the system.
The heated treads and landing mats are energy efficient, using only 35 Watts per square foot of area. For further economy, Martinson Nicholls offers a thermostat accessory that energizes the heated tread system when temperatures are lower than 38 degrees Fahrenheit, and shuts off power when the air temperature rises to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The heated stair treads and mat systems are ideal for all types of commercial and residential uses. Martinson-Nicholls can provide other custom controls to automatically turn the systems on or off to further enhance economics of operation. These snow- and ice-melting products are adaptable, and in many instances, can be used as a substitute to costly canopies or enclosures.
