1. Overview & History of Deicing Systems
Edge Melt Systems’ products have been engineered to achieve the highest performance level. This is proven by how effective the system is at preventing ice dams and contending with snow storms. Our decades of
experience fosters our
technology. Our production process measures fabrication tolerances to four thousandths of an inch. Our heat cables have a tolerance of .010” and are backed with an industry leading ten-year limited warranty. These tolerances are vitally
important to the performance of our systems.

Zig Zag Heat Cables: Limited heat output, Outdated layout concept, Short lifespan with inferior performance, Prone to damage
Old ideas relied on heating cables laying on the roof in a zig zag fashion. Most of the heat produced was quickly lost to the atmosphere. The resulting system was often ineffective, easily overwhelmed, and
In the early 1990’s, systems were developed that coupled the heat cables with thermally conductive materials. While these systems weren’t manufactured to our exacting standards, they were still a big leap forward in ice dam prevention. In
the 2000’s, some attempts were made to improve this idea. These systems still fell short of effective heat transfer to the cover panel and were overly expensive.
Improving on the original concept and avoiding the problems of earlier attempts by others, Edge Melt Systems’ products have advanced the technology, perfecting the balance between heat transfer (function) and aesthetic
beauty (form). Our
roof ice prevention systems have been successfully installed throughout the country from the state of Washington to Maine. Edge Melt Systems’ products are ideal for the Midwest, New England, the Great Lakes Snow Belt, and the Mountain
