Reliable, Proven, Tough

Most roofs can only withstand 20 lbs per ft / 27 kg per m of snow before collapse becomes a concern. Self-regulating roof de-icing systems are one solution to maintain a continuous path for melting water to drain safely.

nVent RAYCHEM self-regulating roof heating cables can be installed for a variety of climates and are designed to handle severe weather, such as high wind speeds, low temperatures and heavy snow loads. These systems are also compatible with roof types, including:

  • Shingle
  • Rubber
  • Tar
  • Bitument
  • Wood
  • Metal 
  • Plastic

Even in complex or unique roofing design, nVent RAYCHEM cut-to-measure cables have a solution to melt the ice.
