Roof and Gutter Deicing

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.

Roof Deicing Systems

STEP® Roof Deicing

Low voltage flat 12″ or 9″ wide heating mat designed to be installed underneath the roof shingles. The heating elements are protected by a chemically inherently inert and dielectric insulation so the heating element can be installed under all types of roofing material, including metal roofs.

The lightweight heating elements are delivered in a roll and can be cut to size and field wired on the job site for easy installation.

  • Strong thin and flexible lightweight element
  • Compatible with shingle and metal roofs
  • Elements can be stapled/nailed through and cut diagonally
  • Low Voltage heater available for 120v, 208 or 240v systems
  • 10 years warranty

STEP® Gutter Deicing

Low voltage 3″ wide gutter heater designed to solve problems with snow buildup, ice damming and the creation of icicles. Strong, thin and flexible lightweight element with an impermeable membrane that protects against physical damages and aggressive materials.

The lightweight heating elements are delivered in a roll and can be cut to size and field wired on the job site for easy installation.

  • Strong thin and flexible lightweight element
  • Used in downspouts to drain water that would otherwise freeze in gutters
  • Elements can be stapled through
  • Low Voltage heater available for 120v, 208 or 240v systems
  • 10 years warranty

Our 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).
