One of the worst hazards of winter are icy, snow-covered walkways and steps. Even after shoveling, leftover water can refreeze, leaving dangerous icy patches. Salt doesn't always work in the coldest of temperatures, and can stain or damage some surfaces.
Heated walkway and stair mats solve the problem by generating constant warmth and preventing refreeze. Powered by electricity, they are available in various sizes and stair treads can be purchased individually or in sets,
Don't have an electrical outlet handy? Snow / ice carpet can provide traction on paths and steps,greatly reducing the danger of slipping and falling. Ice carpet is economical and, unlike salt, it can be used over and over again and rolled up for storage when not in use.
