Heating and Hoarding
Skyline has the expertise and experience needed to keep concrete projects on track during cold weather. Utilizing the best heating solutions such as:
Portable Hydronic Heat Exchangers
These systems offer a no-fire solution, ensuring maximum safety by eliminating the risks associated with open flames. What sets them apart is their ability to provide clean air circulation, guaranteeing that the air quality within your enclosed area remains uncontaminated and breathable.
Dry Air Glycol Thaw and Cure Hose
This equipment excels in ground thawing and frost prevention, streamlining excavation tasks. Additionally, it's a trusted solution for curing grade beams, foundation walls, slabs, and footings. By promoting uniform heat distribution, it guarantees that your construction elements cure evenly, achieving optimal strength and durability.
Custom Built Hoarding Structures
Our winter-proof hoardings are not just designed to secure your site, but also to provide an insulated barrier against the harsh elements, preventing frost intrusion and ensuring uninterrupted progress.
Footing and Pad Protection
If you have footings and pads in an exposed excavation and you need to protect them from freezing and heaving we got the solution: Placing pex lines along the ground or rebar in your formwork prior to pouring and heat the concrete within. The hose is then abandoned once you are done with the heat. The advantage of this is that there are no exposed lines that can get damaged or cause problems with tripping hazards. Heat from the lines stops frost from penetrating underneath the footings.
The second solution is to lay our flexible lines on the concrete once you have finished the pour. This method will work just fine, but the timing of the application of the heat is a bit trickier and the hoses will need to be removed once the cribbing for the walls is started. Using this method will also require supplemental trapping.
