Composition and Innovation

At the heart of our Deck Ice-Melt is the perfect blend of Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2) and an agriculturally derived inhibitor. This combination not only ensures effective melting of ice and snow on your deck but also sets Deck Ice-Melt apart as a leader in safe and sustainable ice prevention solutions. The magnesium chloride works swiftly to melt deck ice, while the inhibitor, derived from agricultural sources, adds a unique layer of protection that is safe for your decks, concrete, pavers, plants, grass, and safer for pets over traditional ice-melt products. As a liquid ice-melt solution, we believe pet safety is invaluable when compared to typical granular ice-melt crystals that can burn and irritate our furry loved one’s paws!

The application process involves using our hand-held sprayer that can deliver a 1/4” stream or mist, ensuring uniform coverage. This application versatility makes Deck Ice-Melt effective whether applied preventatively or during a storm, significantly reducing snow and ice accumulation. Strategic planning during application adds another layer of efficiency. Starting from the farthest point minimizes backtracking through the solution, ensuring a seamless and effective application process.

Results may vary depending on the water content in the snow, but Deck Ice-Melt consistently proves its effectiveness in diverse conditions. The unique formulation creates a non-stick surface, preventing the formation of icy layers and making it easier to shovel or sweep away any accumulated snow.

Our Deck Ice-Melt product is biodegradable and water-soluble, ensuring that it leaves no harmful residue on your deck including the surrounding areas. It is safe for all outdoor wood or composite deck surfaces and concrete/paver surfaces, so you can enjoy winter without worrying about damage to your outdoor spaces.

Pet Care Importance

While magnesium chloride is typically a safer ice-melt ingredient, it may also cause stomach upset to pets. Some pet paws may be sensitive to the product. It is best to be careful with your pets around.

Extended Protection and Reactivation Effect

One of the standout features of DeckWise® Deck Ice-Melt is its reactivation effect, providing protection for up to 14 days. This means that a single application can keep your decks and concrete pathways safe for an extended period, reducing the need for frequent reapplications. This is especially valuable in regions with persistent winter weather.
