Ice Protection and Ice Jacking
Pilemate prevents "ice jacking."
Pilemate protrudes below the water level and acts like a chimney allowing the warmer water to surface from below. Ice forms around the unit to protect the piling. Pilemate also creates a break between the pile and the surrounding ice, so the pile remains unaffected by tidal changes, eliminating the need for expensive bubblers and ice melters.
