Design, products, controls and sensors to keep pavements from freezing for concrete, asphalt, tile, brick, granite, terrazzo or marble.

Snow & Ice Melt For Pavements

Let A.W. Schultz design your snow melt pavement project and provide you the right cable and accessory items.  We have assisted so many customers by providing just the right combination of product controllers and sensors to keep pavements from freezing and re-freezing.  The cable we offer for this application is from Nelson™ and is designed to be strong, durable and long lasting.

A.W. Schultz is your complete source for snow and ice melting pavement projects and can provide:

  • Design and Detailed Drawings
  • Mineral Insulated Cable
  • Power Connection Kits
  • Temperature Sensors
  • In-Ground Moisture Sensors
  • Control Panels Or Controllers To Manage System

Roof, Gutter & Downspout Deicing

Nelson’s roof and guttering deicer cable and accessory products eliminate the ice dams that can build up and damage building roofs, gutters and downspouts. Even after normal melting occurs, excess water can refreeze and can create the potential for roof damage. The heater cable self regulates its power output as a function of temperature so it cannot overheat or damage sensitive roof coatings.

We have many years of experience helping customers with roof, guttering and downspout deicing projects.  Some recent projects include supplying design, materials and several custom-built control panels for roof, guttering and downspout deicing for the new Kansas City International Airport and the Costco Wholesale processing facility in Freemont, Nebraska.

We provide assistance with your roof and guttering project by offering:

  • Design and Detailed Drawings
  • Deicing Cable
  • Power Connection Kits
  • Entry, Splice and End Seal Kits
  • Downspout Hangers
  • Temperature Sensors
  • Aerial Moisture Sensors
  • Control Panels Or Controllers to Manage System
