Heating is a good solution for many types of cold weather problems. For example, snow in gutters and downpipes. Snow turns into ice and causes frost erosion in buildings. Or forms icicles than can detach and lead to significantly worse damage. With a heating solution in gutters and downpipes, snow melts away before it can cause problems.
A snow melting installation has heating cables, smart control and accessories to prevent the build up of ice and melt snow. The purpose is to keep open a water drain-off channel, to prevent the water freezing before reaching a frost-free zone. Snow melting installations are needed on most roofs.
All roofs are different, so we adapt the system for each installation. The control is also adapted to the needs of each system. We have smart systems that take into account both temperature and moisture. The heat is only brought in when there is a risk of ice forming. This makes the snow melting system both energy-efficient and economical.
When we developed Smarta Tak we took into account the needs of those who install our roof heating solutions. It should be quick, easy and safe to install Smarta Tak.
As a property owner or housing cooperative, it is your responsibility to prevent snow from sliding off your roof. This entails both monitoring the risk and taking away the ice and snow that could be a danger. Any property owner that fails to do this could be subject to criminal charges or a case for damages.
