Ground Thawing Blankets: Prep Frozen Ground with Powerblanket

When it’s cold and the ground is frozen, your job suffers.  Thaw frozen ground and get back to work quickly with Ground Thawing blankets from Powerblanket 

Winter is an interesting beast, especially for those who make their livelihood working outside.  Often prep takes longer than the actual job itself.  Powerblanket has considered the difficulties and delays associated with cold and freezing temperatures and has created a solution.  With Powerblanket’s patented heating technology you can prep the ground with little to no effort or supervision on your part. 

Ground Thawing for Commercial Plumbing

A south-central Utah plumber said, “I wish I had known about Powerblanket’s ground thawing blankets a couple years ago.  We had a job in Mount Pleasant that got so cold that we couldn’t dig.  We started laying out thermal blankets every night to avoid the hard freeze that happened overnight.  We had to layer the thermal blankets in order to keep the ground warm enough to work each morning.  Our progress was slow and labored, and we never knew what we would find at the job site each morning.  It woudl have been so much easier if we had had Powerblankets.”

Some industrial companies also try heating the ground with massive coils or large heating systems, which becomes expensive and cumbersome. This approach requires rental fees, transporting equipment, and a bit more money than the bid allows.  Your ground thawing blanket can be used over and over on any frozen job you have.

The high power density in Powerblanket Ground Thawing Blankets helps tackle the difficulty of thawing ground in harsh climates.

Some Things to Remember

Remember that thawing ground goes a lot faster if you first manually remove as much snow and ice as you can.  If you have a foot of snow, remove it all, then apply the blankets.  A foot of snow can add a day to the process if not removed first.

Secondly, thawing frozen ground through a layer of grass can be problematic.  The grass tends to hold the blanket up and away from the frozen ground, making the thawing process much longer than it would be with bare ground.  If a Powerblanket ground thawing blanket is left in place too long, it WILL kill the turf. So if keeping the turf healthy and intact is the goal, then don’t use a ground thawing blanket. However, if you’re trying to thaw the ground for digging purposes, then remove the grass first.
