Roof deicing and heat tracing

Ice Dam and Icicles Prevention


STEP Roof Deicing™ is designed to solve problems with snow buildup and ice damming on roofs, valleys, eaves and gutters for commercial and residential buildings.


Ice dams are formed due to the interaction between the amount of heat loss from a house, snow cover, outside temperatures and the effects of solar energy. The water that accumulates behind an ice dam can cause moisture to seep through the roof, resulting in damaged ceilings, walls and floors and eventually mold growth. Ice dams and their accompanying  icicles are also heavy objects that can cause severe damage or even death when they slide or fall off a roof.

Heating element Technology

Nail through elementsOur Patented low voltage heating element STEP Roof Deicing™ is a durable, yet thin (3/64”) element. This 3", 9", 12” wide element is made of a homogeneous, semi-conductive polymer, which by nature is self-regulating. This self-regulating technology (PTC nano-technology) allows the elements to heat with maximum power in cold environments and use less electricity as they warm up. This minimizes power consumption and reduces your deicing cost by 30 to 60% compared to conventional roof deicing cable systems.

The elements can be bent around corners and cut diagonally to fit the roof construction. The element can be stapled or nailed through without damaging the them (except the bus braids on each side).
