IceBlaster Valley Panel for Metal W Valley (VP-MW)

The IceBlaster by Edge Melt Systems VP-MW is specifically designed to prevent ice dam and icicle build up in the valleys, along dormers, around chimneys and skylights, and any area where a defined melt path is needed.

The highly efficient system is comprised of an aluminum extrusion base panel which houses two runs of commercial grade self-regulating heat cable. 

Installation is simple. Base extrusion mounts over existing metal W valley flashing with a suitable adhesive.  Route two runs of commercial grade self-regulating heat cable. Prefinished aluminum cover panel clamps on base panel and can be riveted to base panel for maximum heat transfer. Route any heat cable in gutter and downspout(s).

The VP-MV can be combined with other EMS products for a comprehensive ice dam prevention system. Expert design layout and installation guidance are available.
