The low-profile HotSeam roof ice prevention system is designed to prevent the formation of dangerous ice dams that can form on standing seam metal roofs. It attaches to existing standing seam metal roofs to create an effective melt path for snow. The new patent-pending system employs UL-Listed self-regulating commercial grade heat tape contained beneath a specially-designed metal raceway, firmly pressing the heat tape against the existing metal roof panel along each standing seam. By conducting thermal energy directly to the exposed roof panel, the new product actually makes the metal roof a part of the ice prevention system. Snowmelt drains efficiently from the roof structure, avoiding the formation of ice dams and preventing water from pooling and backing up into the building, where it has the potential to cause extensive property damage, such as mildew, mold (sometimes toxic mold) and structural rot.
