Effective Ice Dam Prevention For Asphalt Shingle Roofs
HotShingle LOK is a one-piece roof edge ice melt system engineered to lock onto existing asphalt composite shingle without penetrating the roof deck. A specially designed three-sided angulated raceway securely holds a secure a single commercial grade self-regulating heat trace cable in place for a direct heat transfer. The benefit of a direct heat transfer is less heat trace cable is needed to prevent ice dam and icicle formations on all roof edges. Less heat trace cable means lower energy costs. Easily installs around gutters and downspouts. And since no modifications are required to the existing roof structure, overall project costs remain a fraction of all other market alternatives.
HotShingle LOK2X is a simple one-piece roof edge ice melt system engineered to lock onto existing shingle roof edge without penetrating the roof deck. Specially designed three-sided angulated raceways securely hold commercial grade self-regulating heat trace cables in place for a direct heat transfer for maximum performance and achieve a minimum 20-inch melt back. The benefit of a direct heat transfer is less heat trace cable is needed to prevent ice dam and icicle formations on roof edges. Less heat trace cable means lower energy costs. In addition, comparative thermal analysis completed by an independent third-party helped to determine the optimal distance between heat cables to achieve maximum melting capacity. Easily installs around gutters and downspouts. And since no modifications are required to the existing roof structure, overall project costs remain a fraction of all other market alternatives.
HotFlashing panels create an ice-free zone where walls meet roof structures. Taking advantage of direct heat transfer, HotFlashing creates a wide melt path that prevents snowmelt water from re-freezing on the roof structure. This strategic design can also be utilized to create wide melt paths for snow meltwater in commercial gutters, parameters of dormers, around chimneys and prevent refreezing (icicles) on extended fascia regions.
HotValley creates a wide melt path for snow meltwater to prevent ice dam formations. It is recommended that HotValley be used in combination with any HotEdge roof edge ice melt system since it is always critical that snow meltwater created by HotValley is not able to re-freeze on the roof edges where icicles and ice dams could form. HotValley is composed of a three-sided metal track designed to encapsulate one or two runs of commercial-grade self-regulating UL-approved deicing heat cable. It is designed for fast, simple installation in all roof valleys. The HotValley is attached to the valley with high-quality commercial-grade polyurethane adhesive, avoiding penetrations to the roof deck. Thermal energy is conducted directly from the heating cable to the HotValley track, and radiates outward from the track, resulting in a wide melt path sufficient to prevent pooling and allow snowmelt to reach the heated roof eave.
