Waiting for walks and a driveway to be cleared increases the risk of a fall and injury, not to mention the all-too-frequent and completely unforgettable shoveling injuries. Unpredictable weather, both sudden snowstorms and rapid temperature swings make keeping walkways and driveways snow and ice-free and safe is a constant wintertime challenge.
"Over one million people annually seek emergency room treatment for accidental falls, the majority of these spills come during the winter months"
A Helios heated snowless-surface helps insure greater safety.
Simply stated, Helios is litigation prevention. Business owners spend billions of dollars for liability insurance, helping to stave off costly litigation. One accidental, weather-related fall in the parking lot, or on a walkway or even a slippery lobby comes with a likely price tag far-greater than a Helios snowmelt system.
