STEP® Roof Deicing 9″

STEP® Roof Deicing – 9″ (23cm) for Metal and Shingle Roofs

STEP® Roof Deicing 9″ (22.9cm) wide radiant heating element is designed to solve problems with snow buildup and ice damming on roofs, valleys and eaves. Make sure to provide proper drainage for the melted ice and snow.

STEP® Roof Deicing is protected by a 2-mil chemically, inherently inert and dielectric insulation so that the heating element can be installed under all types of roofing materials, including metal roofs.

This heating element is designed for areas that require more narrow elements, 9” instead of 12” (30 cm) due to available width.

✔ Strong, thin and flexible lightweight element with an impermeable membrane that protects against physical damages and aggressive materials
✔ The elements are designed and typically installed underneath the roof shingles and can be stapled or nailed through without damaging them
✔ Operates on 24 volts (AC/DC); Connect to a power supply, solar or wind power
✔ Self-regulating; As the material gets warmer, less electricity passes through the plastic – therefore it is extremely energy-efficient
✔ Easy to install; roll out the elements and cut to size on the job site, connect wires to power supply and elements
✔ Maintenance-free when installed
✔ Tip for ultimate energy savings; install Heat Retention mat between heating elements and the metal roof
