The HotValley™ roof ice melting system creates melt pathways to prevent snowmelt from refreezing in roof valleys and to reduce snow loads when necessary. HotValley should be used in combination with the HotEdge rail on the roof edge to ensure snowmelt drains down the valley and does not refreeze to form icicles or ice dams on the roof eaves. HotValley is composed of a metal track that serves as a containment system for one or two runs of 12-watt commercial-grade self-regulating heat cable.
The HotValley track is designed for fast and easy installation in the valleys of either existing or new roofs. HotValley attaches to roof valleys with high-quality polyurethane adhesive, avoiding penetration of 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 melt path suffi cient to allow snowmelt to reach the heated roof eave before refreezing and forming ice dams. Watch our roof ice melting systems video to learn more about how HotEdge can help you.
- ENERGY EFFICIENT
Transfers heat directly from heat cable to the HotValley track which can be installed in the trough of most roof valleys.
Ensures snowmelt does not refreeze and form ice dams in roof valleys.
- SIMPLE INSTALLATION
Commercial adhesive secures HotValley to roof valleys to protect and firmly hold heat cable in place.
- NO ROOF PENETRATION
Utilizes a non-penetrating clamp to maintain the integrity of the roof deck structure.
- NO MODIFICATIONS
Designed to easily install on all asphalt and metal roof valleys.
- MULTIPLE COLOR SELECTION
Aesthetically blends in with the roof architecture.
- EASY MAINTENANCE
Heat cables are easily accessible for inspection and replacement at the end of their service life.
Heat cable is protected from UV light and sliding or shifting snow/ice to ensure longevity. Industry-leading 10-year limited warranty covers heat cable failures and manufacturing defects.
