Systems of snow melting of a roof. Installation of snow melting systems.

With the "unexpected" arrival of a snowy winter for residents of every big city and cottage community, the main problem is cleaning the roof of buildings from huge deposits of accumulated snow. The huge weight of the accumulated snow can cause significant damage to the roof, damaging not only the roof covering, but also the roof structure itself. Restoration of damaged roof requires significant capital investment. In order to avoid unnecessary costs, experts advise to equip the roof with a reliable system of snow melting.

Universal system of snow melting of the roof.

The snow melting system of the roof allows you to effectively clean the roof of any shape from the accumulated snow with a minimum amount of energy. Essential and very effective assistance in the difficult work of clearing the roof of snow can provide snowmelt systems for roofing based on Electric Heat Cable. There are no restrictions on the installation of snow melting systems.

The modern snow melting system for the roof is based on the use of modern automation and electric heating cables. The snow melting system is strictly structured and debugged, it does not require constant monitoring by the person. Electric heating cables do not consume electricity all day along, this process is regulated by rain and temperature sensors. Connected sensors activate the roof heating system only if necessary, saving your energy costs.

Specificity of the system, helping to get rid of snow on the roof.

The cable, which is part of the snow melting system, is mounted along the edge of the roof slope. Rolling snow to the edge falls on the heating cable and flows down. Melt water, obtained from snow, is removed from the roof surface through a system of drains.

Two different types of cables are often used in systems that provide electrical heating of the roof: resistive and self-regulating. Each of the types of cables has its positive characteristics, which ensure the reliability and optimal performance of the whole system. That's why these types of cables deserve special attention.

Resistive cable

Such a cable used in snow melting systems will attract many buyers with its low cost, simplicity in installation and subsequent operation. The constant power, distributed over the entire length of the cable, makes it convenient to use it on fairly large areas of simple roofs.

The use of two-core resistive Defrost Snow Heating Cables for installation in snow melting systems is the optimal solution as compared to single-core cables. The cable is additionally shielded with aluminum and has an insulation made of polyethylene. Also there is a coupling and a special ten-meter wire, designed to connect the cable to the power source. We can offer you several modifications having different power and length. Resistive cable is rated for 220-240 volts.

Self-regulating cable

Despite the higher cost, this cable is characterized by a higher degree of practicality. It is ideally suited for installation in certain sections of roofs, on which it is necessary to regulate the change in the heat release of the cable. The design features of a self-regulating cable allow you to significantly save energy consumed during operation. His work is directly related to the temperature of the surrounding air and the presence of snow on the roof.

This type of cable reacts to the temperature of the environment and the amount of precipitation. And the lower the temperature outside the window, the stronger the cable is heated. The use of a self-regulating electrical heating cable is based on the ability of some materials to change their electrical resistance, depending on the temperature conditions.

This type of cable used in snow melting systems is characterized by increased reliability and economy. Its main advantages include:

· The ability to automatically maintain the constant temperature of the heated surface,

· Energy efficiency less power consumption in places where it is not required),

· Excellent thermal protection, which guarantees high performance,

· Practicality (the possibility of obtaining a heating section of exactly the right length).
