Hot Edge, Inc.An innovative startup company has designed an efficient solution to commercial and residential roof edge ice problems with a system that equals the performance of the most effective systems on the market, and costs less to purchase, install and operate. Initial installations in the Aspen area and other high snow load regions have proven successful at reducing safety hazards and property risks associated with overhanging icicles and ice dams. Introduced this year at the International Builders Show, the new, patent-pending HotEdge Roof Ice Melt System takes a new approach by incorporating standard UL-approved 12W self-regulating ice melt cable with a specially-engineered, low-profile metal raceway. Designed to firmly press the cable against the existing roof edge, the system creates a warm surface to prevent snowmelt from refreezing before it drains to ground level. Because HotEdge requires just a fraction of the electrical cable used in competing systems, homeowners and businesses benefit from premium performance in a less expensive option that conserves energy, year after year.
