Our ice melt system directs heat transfer through self-regulated cables ensures that the panel receives even heat throughout the structure, preventing ice dams and icicles from forming anywhere on the edge.

With the way that our Ice Melt System is designed, you don’t have to make adjustments to your wood shingle roof at all. Available in various sizes, our Ice Melt System ensures to fit right against your existing wood shingles, providing you with a timely and budget-friendly solution to a very pressing problem.

How to Permanently Remove Ice Dams on Wood Shingles

Ice dams and icicles are perhaps the most significant issues that your home can face during winter. You don’t always have the time to remove these uninvited additions manually. But if you don’t force yourself to do so, you expose your family, guests, and your home to a host of problems.

Ice dams block the flow of melted ice water by the edge. Instead of letting water drip down your gutter and downspout, ice dams cause it to sit still until it damages your wood shingles. When left for even a short time, it can eventually seep under your wood shingles to cause leakage issues. Conversely, icicles dangle by the edge and can hurt anyone who passes under them. Needless to say, it’s the worst kind of surprise anyone can get during winter.

To resolve this issue, you can turn to our Ice Melt System for effective ice dam prevention for wood shingle roofs. Through its modern structure that uses sturdy materials and self-regulating heat trace cables, our system ensures that ice dams and icicles never get a chance to form!

HotShakeLOK®

HotShakeLOK is a one-piece roof edge ice melt system engineered to lock onto existing wood shake roof edge without penetrating 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.

HotShakeLOK2X

HotShakeLOK2X is a simple one-piece roof edge ice melt system engineered to lock onto existing wood shake roof edge without penetrating 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 icicles 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 existing roof structure, overall project costs remain a fraction of all other market alternatives.

HotValley

HotValley creates 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 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 12W 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 heat 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.

HotFlashing

HotFlashing is a special engineered design used to prevent ice dam formations where roof walls meet roof slopes utilizing a commercial-grade 12W self-regulating UL-approved roof and gutter deicing heat cable. Since roof to wall or wall to roof can be problematic areas on many roof structures in medium and high snow load regions. 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 to prevent ice build-up along wall/roof areas on all roof structures.
