Stadium Lugano, Switzerland

Ice & snow melting

DEVI was chosen for the snow melting system on the roof of a stand in the stadium of Lugano. The existing roof was not good enough to withstand the weight of snow in case of heavy snow fall. The solution was to fix a heating cable system on the roof. The roof was covered by a special plastic layer, so it was not possible to fix the cables directly. Therefore, we fixed a metal grid on the concrete segments and the cable on the grid.

Project Overview:

The roof was split into 11 segments with 14.2 m 4.05 m, in total 632 m2.

DEVI installed 6,000 m heating cable with a total power output of 150 kW.

Thermostats
Backend.Models.ProductViewModel.Title
The DEVIreg™ 850 is an advanced thermostat with LED display used for outdoor ground or roof applications. The sensors provide information about both moisture level and temperature, resulting in an optimal control of the heating system. The system can be set up in three ways; as a single system for roof or ground (1 to 4 sensors), as a dual system for roof or ground (2 - 4 sensors) or as a combination system for roof and ground (2 - 4 sensors). In the dual / combination systems it is possible to prioritize between the zones, e.g. if only a limited power output is available.
