HEATIZON SYSTEMS – Salt Lake City, Utah USA
August 23, 2007 – Heatizon Systems products take top honors in the Snow & Ice Melting Division at the Radiant Panel Association System Showcase.
Murray, Utah – Heatizon Systems products have once again been recognized by the radiant industry at this year’s System Show Case Awards at the Radiant Panel Association and Radiant Expo convention, which was held in Hartford, Connecticut. Judges awarded Heatizon Systems products First Place in the Snow & Ice Melting Division for a roof deicing project which was installed in an LDS Church in Park City, Utah by WarmQuest, a Heatizon Systems Distributor.
Aesthetics, longevity and performance were the primary objectives when selecting the appropriate way to melt the snow and ice off of the roof of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Stake Center located in Park City, Utah. Heatizon Systems Tuff Cable in a Heatsink Kit and Heatizon Systems ZMesh Roof Snow Melt and Deicing products were selected for the project because they were able to satisfy all three objectives. When the project was completed, approximately 3300 square feet of the roof of the large church located in snowy Park City, Utah was protected from ice dams, and icicles.
The architects desired to utilize metal in the valleys of the roof so Heatizon Systems Tuff Cable in a Heatsink Kit was selected for these areas. The Heatsink Kit was installed directly on top of ice and water shield. Then the Tuff Cable was installed into the Heatsink Kit. Once the Tuff Cable had been installed the Heatsink Kit was covered with ice and water shield, which was then covered with valley metal.
As for the eaves, ZMesh was selected and installed under the composite shingles approximately 8 feet up the roof. ZMesh was installed directly on top of ice and water shield (it could have been installed directly on top of the sub-roof but the ice and water shield was already in place). Once the ZMesh was stapled in place ice and water shield was installed directly on top of it. Composite shingles were then installed on top of the ice and water shield.
The roof snow melt and deicing systems are activated by an aerial mounted temperature/moisture sensor and an independent manual override for each of the 10 zones. The aerial mounted temperature/moisture sensor is wired to Heatizon Systems M329 Selector which turns each zone on in sequential order so the primary power source is not over loaded. The Selector also provides manual override to turn one or more of the zones on.
Heatizon Systems products have won numerous awards over the years, including 3rd place in the 1 to 5 Radiant Zones Category in 2006 for a space heating project, 1st Place in the Electrical Radiant Division in 2005 for a roof deicing project at the Park City Community Church, as well as 1st Place in the Electrical Commercial Division for a 77 zone snow melting project under granite pavers at the LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
