Low-Voltage Roof Deicing Systems

Low-voltage roof heating system installed in valley and along roof edge of commercial structure ProLine Radiant offers one of the most advanced and efficient roof deicing systems available. The low-voltage roof deicing system features flexible polymer heating elements that can be installed discreetly under roof shingles and are polypropylene fused during fabrication for protection from alkaline and salt damage. The thin polymer heating element can be nailed and stapled through and cut on site to facilitate quick, easy installation. (However, do not nail through the bus braids at the sides of the heating element.)

The roof heating elements are also self-regulating, meaning that when the ambient temperature rises, the electrical resistance increases and the consumption of electricity decreases. This prevents the element from overheating and ensures energy-efficient operation.

Overview

The automated system features an activation device/snow sensor that detects weather conditions to automatically trigger the control unit when conditions warrant. The sensor most commonly used for ProLine Radiant roof heating systems is the durable aerial-mount snow switch. Low-voltage roof heating system installed being installed along the roof edge of a commercial structure When the temperature is below a set point (usually 39°F) and precipitation is present, the snow sensor signals the controller which then sends power to the heating element, activating the radiant snowmelt system to heat the roof.

The low-voltage system also utilizes transformers that “step down” high voltage to low voltage (60 V or less) while controlling a specific section of the roof heating system. A favorite feature of the transformers is that they operate quietly - unlike other types of low-voltage roof deicing systems. A controller monitors the power and output to the heating element to ensure safe, accurate, and efficient performance.

Versatile, Efficient and Reliable

The low-voltage roof deicing system is ideal for a variety of roof heating heating solutions. The systems can be easily installed to heat entire roofs, roof valleys and roof edges to eliminate ice dams from forming.

Low-voltage roof heating element ProLine roof heating systems have proven to be reliable, easy to install and energy efficient. The thin, flexible heating element is polypropylene fused during fabrication to ensure that the panel is protected against UV rays and other potential physical damages. This ensures effective, reliable roof heating to help protect your roof from the costly effects of heavy snow and ice damage.
