Roof frost protection system
The ice and snow melting system for roofs and roof gutters can be applied for virtually any type of roof constructions to prevent meltwater accumulation in roof gutters and to reduce damage to constructions like frozen facades and roofs.
The ice and snow melting system should be installed along the roof edge or where there is a risk of ice and snow formation. Damage prevention in roof gutters and downpipes is achieved by efficient and free meltwater draining, which typically proves satisfactory operation of the system.
Electronic thermostats ensure that optimal results are achieved with the least possible energy consumption. These results are ensured by highly precise readings of weather sensors and thermostats providing automatic on/off heating control at the right time.
The typical applications are roof constructions, roof gutters, downpipes, flat roofs and valley gutters.
The roof frost protection systems consist of electric heating cables, electronic thermostats, and installation accessories.
The digital thermostats with sensors ensure that optimal results are achieved with the least amount of energy possible.
Recommendations for the Roof frost protection system
Main purpose of the the Roof frost protection system is to melt and remove snow and ice from ground surfaces:
• Hotels & Commercial buildings
• One family house
• Airports and heliports
The Roof frost protection system is designed to provide safety for people, vehicles, and buildings safety through safe walking and driving during winter and safety in terms of less damage to buildings.
