Roof & Gutter De-Icing

Safe roofs & protected gutters

Melting and refreezing of snow and ice on roofs and in gutters can cause structural damage and injuries. nVent RAYCHEM self-regulating de-icing systems avoid this. They provide a continuous path for melting water to drain safely along gutters and down drain pipes off the roof. Suitable for all types of buildings.

Any roof, anytime

No two roof and gutter de-icing systems requirements are the same. Our solutions are suitable for a variety of roof and gutter materials (shake, shingle, rubber, tar, wood, metal and plastic), and our easy installation techniques cover any size and shape.

nVent RAYCHEM Roof Ice Melt (RIM) systems are designed to be worked into the roof or gutter, making the heating cable invisible. They are the most aesthetically pleasing solution. The RIM system mechanically protects the self-regulating cable, provides high power output along the entire roof edge, and is ideal for new construction or renovation of buildings for all snow load areas. 

Safe and practical

Our self-regulating cables are designed with an innovative outer jacket that ensures a long life - even when exposed to all weather conditions. Easy-to-install roof heat tape is also available for deicing roofs. Cable and tape can be cut-to-length and closely spaced in gutters without risk of overheating or burn-outs. The fast connection systems cut installation time by 80%.

Reliable and durable

nVent's RAYCHEM Roof and Gutter De-Icing systems can be installed in a variety of climates and can handle severe wind speed, elevation, low temperatures and heavy snow load.
 

Benefits

Safe and simple to install

nVent RAYCHEM self-regulating roof deicing cable has a UV-resistant, modified polyolefin outer jacket that ensures a long life - even when exposed to all weather conditions.  Easy-to-install roof heat tape is also available for deicing roofs.  Cable and tapes can be cut-to-length and closely spaced in gutters without risk of overheating or burn-outs.

Economical to operate with advanced controls

nVent RAYCHEM systems only switch on when the sensors of the control unit detect both low temperature and moisture, reducing energy usage and costs. When there is no moisture, there is no snow, increasing energy-efficiency.

Maintenance-free, environmentally clean

our systems utilize electric heat trace cables avoiding environmental and safety hazards.  Hydronic systems rely on circulating warm fluids, such as a glycol-water mix, which increases the risk of hazardous leakage and maintenance
