Frost Heave Prevention System

We are major manufacturers of frost heave prevention systems and allied products for cold stores.

Frost Heave Prevention Systems
Essential protection for cold stores against the impact of frost heave.
Loheat designs and manufactures bespoke heating systems to prevent the build-up of ice in the ground beneath cold stores and blast freezers. If not prevented, this will significantly affect the integrity of the building. We also offer an installation service for all of our frostheave products.

Electric Frost Heave Prevention Systems
Loheat heating systems are designed to prevent the dangerous buildup of ice in the ground below the cold store floor that leads to frost heave. We provide a thermostatically controlled heat barrier which prevents the damaging ice build-up from reaching the floor and walls. Our low voltage floor systems ensure low initial cost and energy saving solutions without the complexity and environmental issues associated with glycol.

Signs of frost heave include:
• Severe cracks in floors and walls
• Raised floor levels
• Racking becoming misaligned
• Rising or distorted internal structural columns

Loheat 25mm & 12mm Modular Heater Mats – low voltage electric
Our modular mat system is a cost-effective and versatile frost heave prevention system.
Main features of our modular heater mats:
• Suitable for all cold room applications
• Comprises of the heater wires set into insulation boards
• They do not interfere with the assembly of modular cold stores as they are simply laid onto any smooth, solid floor. They also do not require fixing to the base concrete.
• Thermostatically controlled to maintain the target temperature level completely automatically.
• Constructed from high grade poly boards which carry our sheathed heavy duty stainless steel heating wire
• Forms part of the insulation envelope needed before the final floor is laid
•Fully detailed drawing and installation and operation instructions provided with every heater mat

Loheat Traditional Heater Mats – low voltage electric
Our traditional mat system is a cost-effective and versatile frost heave prevention system.
Main features of our traditional heater mats:
• Suitable for all coldroom applications
• More cost effective on larger cold room floor areas
• Easily fitted into the base concrete
• Thermostatically controlled to maintain the target temperature level completely automatically.
•Fully detailed drawing and installation and operation instructions provided with every heater mat
