The IceBlaster by Edge Melt System Channel Melt Panel (SP-CM) is specifically designed to prevent ice dams that occur at dormers and other areas where meltwater draining onto a roof surface can refreeze and create leak issues. These include upper valleys, gutters, or downspouts that drain onto a roof surface requiring flow to a lower drainage point.
Installation is simple. Base panel mounts over existing roofing material with supplied counter channel panel cleat. Install base extrusion. Route two runs of commercial grade self-regulating heat cable. The prefinished aluminum cover panel is riveted to base panel for maximum heat transfer. Route any heat cable in gutter and downspout(s).
