Membrane (EPDM) Invisible Roof Deicing

Radiant Roof Deicing for Membrane Roofs

Heatizon’s ZMesh roof ice melt system is a very durable, 9″ wide bronze screen heating element. For membrane roof deicing applications, ZMesh is designed to be installed under membranes for deicing around drains and drain paths, along service walkways and around equipment. Large areas can be covered with Heatizon products to solve problems with heavy snow loads, ice accumulation, and provide leak prevention. 9″ wide ZMesh is easily installed UNDER the roofing material and can be placed between gypsum board layers or plywood, while having the outstanding ablility to be nailed and stapled through.

ZMesh has been a popular solution for membrane roof deicing, preventing heavy snow loads, minimizing ice on the roof and around drains. Heatizon roof products are an effective solution without the appearance of uninviting, visible wires on the roof that may compromise the aesthetics of an expensive building, a walking hazard, and require routine replacement every other year becuase they are exposed to the elements. ZMesh has been proven time and time again to be the best roof ice and snow melting product with our industry leading 25 year warranty. The longevity of this product speaks for itself.

Heatizon recommends installing/extending a membrane roof deicing system to the gutter/downspouts in conjunction with our roof heating systems to ensure maximum water flow. Your Heatizon distributor can provide more information about extending your system to include gutters and downspouts.

Heatizon ZMesh and Tuff Cable are the ONLY products listed to melt snow and ice for installations under roofing materials (UL 1588). These systems are the only system listed on the market that follow Article 426 of the NEC for under roof or enclosed panel applications.
