Mar 01, 2011 – Canada's largest online mat retailer, Canada Mats, started carrying a line of snow melting mats during the winter of 2010/2011 which have turned out to be a life-saver for many senior citizens. "If my father-in-law has one more fall he's not going to be with us anymore, these snow melting mats are saving his life", said Paul Meyers of Ottawa. There are 3 different types of snow melting mats available: heated doormats, heated stair mats and heated walkway mats. These heated mats prevent ice accumulation and melt up to 2 inches of snow per hour. There are also commercial versions of the snow melting mats designed for high traffic areas like: ski hills, hotels and busy shops. The snow melting mats are designed to be left outside for the entire winter season. "We had no idea that these mats were going to be so popular, we have had an amazing amount of positive customer feedback so far", said Mark Taeylor of Canada Mats. Each year during the cold Canadian winter, thousands of senior citizens have falls which in many cases become life threatening. These falls can be prevented by removing ice from stairs and walkways around their homes. The snow melting mats are very reliable for removing snow and ice all winter long. The 2010/2011 winter in Canada has been extremely cold with record snow falls. Vancouver, the warmest city in Canada which had a very mild 2009/2010 winter (unfortunately for the Olympics) has seen temperatures in the -10 degree celcius range. Canada Mats ships to anywhere in Canada and offers volume discounts. For more information please visit Canada Mats. To inquire about the various mats call 866-561-1921 or email email@example.com.
