Roof and Gutter De-Icing

Roofs and gutters can be severely damaged by ice buildup. Ice dams and icicles form when the accumulated snow on a roof melts, and refreezes at the eaves and valleys during the evening. As the cycle continues and the ice dam continues to grow it prevents the melted water from properly draining off of the roof. Eventually, icicles begin to form, potentially creating both structural damage and safety issues. By melting falling snow and keeping gutters clear, these systems will help to preserve the integrity of the roof while eliminating the potential danger associated with falling icicles.

Roof Problem

The Problem
Ice dams can form dangerous icicles and cause water ingress into buildings. The ice dams form because melting snow and ice on a roof freeze when they reach the cold roof edge. The ice forms a barrier and melted water accumulates behind this ice dam. Pooled water behind the dam may leak into the building, causing water damage, or climb over the ice-filled gutter, forming icicles.

 

Roof Deicing2The Solution
Raychem roof and gutter de-icing systems offer a better way to help prevent the formation of ice dams and icicle on facilities such as office buildings, warehouses, storage facilities and production buildings. With its self-regulating heating cable, Raychem systems provide a continuous drain path for melted ice and snow from the roof through the gutter and downspout. Versatile, reliable, energy-saving, and cost-effective, these systems are the effective answer for roof and gutter de-icing applications.


IceStop System

This system provides a continuous path for roof snow melt to drain from the roof through the gutter and downspout. This heat trace cable system is ideal for installation on:

Cable Raysol

            • Roofs made from standard roofing materials including shake, shingle, rubber, tar, wood, metal and plastic
            • Gutters made from standard materials including metal and plastic
            • Downspouts made from standard materials including metal and plastic

 

The IceStop System prevents the following:
   • Interior Structural Damage - Ice dams on roof edges lead to water ingress.
   • Exterior Damage to Gutters - Frozen gutters are heavy, leading to distortion or breakage.
   • Falling Icicles - Icicles pose a threat and a liability to people and property.
   • Slippery Walkways - Overfilled gutters allow water to fall on the ground and refreeze.
