A first for the UK: An underground heated driveway installed by us

South West Surfacing Specialists are proud to announce that we're the first company in the UK to install underground heating beneath a domestic driveway. We did this as a safety feature to prevent ice and frost build up. Our client specified that as his driveway was very steep and narrow that safety was the key reason.

We laid underground heating units, as seen in the picture, and then laid over a resin bound driveway as we would in any regular works. The heating stretched from the base of the driveway all the way up to the car turntable at the top of the hill. Controlled by a simple remote unit, the underfloor heating will prevent cars from sliding in icy conditions and it will stop snow from laying too.
