Radiant Roof and Gutter Heating

Radiant heated roof and gutter heating systems can dramatically enhance the life span of your roof and protect it from damage caused by heavy snow and ice accumulation. 

Older buildings are a visible testament to the damaging effects of roof ice and snow that can destroy fronts, roofs, drainpipes, and gutters. Roofs that have substandard support structures, and such shortcomings can enable water to enter the building. As technology improves insulation value, there is less heat gain from inside of the building, causing an increased hazard of ice damage and damming on the roof. Once winter frost sets in, damage is often inevitable. Flat roofs on industrial buildings often give in to excessive weight loads generated by accumulations of ice and snow. This can be prevented by installing a quality heated roof and gutter deicing system, eliminating potential damage from snow and ice buildup.

Technitrace Roof Heating and Deicing Cable

Most snow and ice melt applications are best served by using the Technitrace self-regulating heating element, Warmzone's most recommended roof heating solution. Durable Technitrace heat cables can be installed in roof gutters and drainpipes to keep your home safe from dangerous ice damage and frost erosion. (Determining the ideal heat cable, thermostat and sensor depends in part on the size, type and construction of the roof, and also on the overall requirements of the particular installation.)

The Technitrace roof and gutter heating cable features advanced technology that results in effective, energy efficient operation. The irradiated conductive core increases its heat output as the temperature falls, and decreases its output when the temperature rises. The heating element also features a rugged, durable construction, capable of withstanding harsh winter environments.

Technitrace comes with a 100 percent tinned copper braid, fluoropolymer outer jacket and a continuous metal ground band. The cable is UL recognized under the Appliance Wire Classification (file E 76498) and meets the requirements of Section 426 of the National Electric Code (NEC). This ensures durability, reliability and extremely effective performance.

Automated Roof Heating

Automated roof heating systems feature a main controller (a snow/ice sensor), that activates the snowmelt system only when moisture is detected and the temperature is below 39° F. This provides an extremely cost-effective solution for large areas of roof snow and ice melting. The DMC-100 master control unit is the premier snowmelt control unit in the industry, and the only UL listed control unit of its kind, making it ideal for residential and commercial applications.

Outdoor temperature sensors are intended for use on roofs and in roof gutters, while moisture sensors and wire sensors are normally fitted inside gutters where the melted runoff collects. The actual number and placement depends on the size and nature of the particular roof heating installation.

Warmzone's electric weatherproof thermostat provides temperature control for small and large areas.
