Roof Deicing, Ice Dam Prevention and Heat Tracing Systems

Tuff Cable Installed Under Metal ShinglesHeatizon roof deicing systems, ice dam prevention products, and heat tracing cables using Tuff Cable, ZMesh, and GutterMelt help prevent snow and ice problems on roofs and ease the potential liabilities caused by snow and ice around eaves, drains, valleys, entire roof systems and any pathways where water or fluids have the potential to freeze.

Heatizon high performance low voltage systems are installed under the roof for longevity and reliability while our line voltage heat tracing cables are installed on top of roofs, in gutters and downspouts, and along pipes to preventive dams and snow buildup.

We recommend the heat you need:
Our products are customized to provide the right amount of heat for different applications and to melt snow and prevent ice dams effectively and efficiently. Our products have been vigorously tested by ETL for snow melting and roof deicing on roofs and we carry separate listings for our heated driveway/exterior surface snow melting systems and heated floor systems.

ZMesh and Tuff Cable are the only products authorized (UL 1588) to melt snow and ice installed under roofing materials, including metal roofing.

Worry Free Reliability

The entire line of Heatizon roof deicing and ice dam prevention products are solid state, have no moving parts to wear out, and have nothing that requires routine maintenance. In addition, our quality roof heating elements are the longest lasting available and backed by our industry leading warranties. An automated on/off activation device makes the safety of and operation of our heated roof systems a “no brainer.”

Cost Effective to Save Energy

Our roof deicing and ice dam prevention systems are designed to operate only when necessary and can be programmed to turn on automatically only when needed. These activators use advanced temperature and moisture sensing technology making them efficient and effective while minimizing operating costs. Our Design Engineers will be able to estimate hourly rates for each system based on our years of operating data and current electrical rates.
