Electric heat trace snow melt projects require significant expertise in designing the custom layout for each application to ensure effective surface heating while reducing energy usage. Our experience in projects both large and small will be put to use on all projects that we work on for our customers.
To ensure guest safety, we designed a full roof and gutter snow melt system to prevent snow from building up on flat roof surfaces near the main entrance of the casino. This system included a complex control design that used sensors in several different locations to guarantee that the system would always be on when needed.
Because of the unique architectural features of the cathedral and the heavy snow fall in Upstate NY, dangerous ice dams and icicles would form on the front of the building. Using a system that included both MI cable and self-regulating heat trace we were able to eliminate this hazard.
Because of the heavy snow fall in Rochester and the flat roof on the building, keeping the snow away from HVAC and other critical equipment was difficult. Our system now assures that the snow is melted and guided away from the equipment using self-regulating electric heating cable.
Because the downspouts on the roof were installed near the dock doors, ice backups were causing large icicles to fall and damage trucks. Installing an electric heat trace system in the gutter and a double run through the downspout eliminated this problem.
Steep roofs and glass lined vestibules are prime targets for ice dams as the internal temperature changes create melting and freezing conditions on the roof. Our self-regulating heating cable system assures that the cable is only on when needed and keeps the ice from forming.
