ThermaPANEL efficiently melts snow on exterior surfaces using low temperature heat sources such as geothermal energy, waste energy, stored thermal energy or high-efficiency conventional heat sources.
In warm months, the system is used to collect thermal solar energy for the heating of swimming pools, domestic water or industrial uses while cooling the pavement surface to comfortable temperatures at the same time.
ThermaPANEL panels are installed under the pavement surface and are in contact with 95% of the pavement area. Heat exchange fluid is pumped evenly through the panels in turbulent flow channels creating an even and efficient transfer of energy between the fluid and the surface.
ThermaPANEL modular heat exchangers can be installed under sidewalks, plazas, rooftop patios, driveways or roads. Rooftop pedestal mounted ThermaPANEL panels work with 2′ x 2′ and 600mm x 600mm pavers or stones and are compatible with all pedestal types. The surface mounted version can be used with any paver, brick, flagstone, poured concrete or asphalt surfaces.
ThermaPANEL panels are 100% U.S.A. made and utilize the latest in bimodal copolymer plastic resin technology to produce a durable, easy to install heat exchange system. Panels are joined to form parallel rows with induction welded PE-RT tubing eliminating the need for any mechanical connections that would be susceptible to leaking. ThermaPANEL is available in oxygen or non-oxygen barring versions.
