Viega has introduced its ProRadiant Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System for its snow melting system. The piping system is ideal for applications including helipads, loading docks, parking garages and stairs.

The Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System insulation results in a reduction in heat loss over competitive products in the market. The strength of the system makes it ideal for burial under areas with high traffic loads or foot traffic. The membrane between the outer casing and insulation enhances and maintains the insulation value, keeping operating performance high throughout the service life of the pipe.

The bonded system eliminates risk of water penetration and no special considerations for thermal expansion are required. The polyethylene (LDPE) jacket resists any impact or blows incurred during the installation or transportation. The piping system is UV-treated, requires no special tools for assembly and is available in long coils or custom coil lengths.

Viega offers snow melt systems for a multitude of commercial and residential applications. Viega ProRadiant incorporates radiant technology and automatic controls that detect snow and ice when it is below certain temperatures outside. Viega Design Services team offers radiant and snowmelt system design support. Visit the design services section on www.viega.us to learn more and access a snow and ice melt design request form.
