Heated mats melt snow on contact to keep walkways and stairs safe and clear of snow and ice.

Businesses are quickly discovering HeatTrak as the efficient and convenient way to keep facilities safe and protected from slip and fall accidents throughout the winter.

At First Choice Physical Therapy in Wasilla, AK, health and safety is physical therapist and owner, Jeff LePage's number one concern. The facility treats patients recovering from work, sports, and other personal injuries, so getting clients safely into the building is always the first step towards recovery. Of course, this can prove to be a difficult task when walkways are covered with snow and ice, creating a slippery danger zone for clients. LePage turned to HeatTrak to keep his patients and employees safe from slip and fall accidents due to the winter elements.

Since the clinic opened its doors in 2006, LePage has struggled to keep up with the heavy Alaska snow that accumulates on the facility grounds. "Even if it only snows a few inches, the snowdrifts can build up to four or five feet high and they are almost impossible to break through," he explains. LePage discovered HeatTrak and purchased eight industrial walkway mats to install around the facility.

After watching the mats work through the severe Alaska weather, he couldn't be happier with the investment. "As a business owner, they save me untold hours shoveling out my entrances."

Businesses are quickly discovering HeatTrak as the efficient and convenient way to keep facilities safe and protected from slip and fall accidents throughout the winter. HeatTrak's most recently completed installations include projects at Killington and Stowe Ski Resorts in Vermont, The University of Maine, Otis Spunkmeyer plant in Illinois, and Black Thunder Coal Mine in Wyoming. Building owners and facility managers, nationwide, echo LePage’s enthusiastic sentiments: “Thank you so much for a great product,” he exclaims. “And awesome customer service, too!"

Snow-melting mats are available for purchase in hardware stores across the country and on e-commerce sites such as amazon.com, homedepot.com and warmyourfloor.com.
