Power Plant Supply Company offers Heatizon products to help avoid the buildup of snow and ice on eavestroughs, gutters, and roofs. We can use low-voltage Zmesh or Tuff Cable for maximum longevity or line-voltage GutterMelt for classic, affordable roof de-icing and protection.

Heatizon products are ETL listed and have been rigorously tested to UL 1588 and CSA standards in USA and Canada. These are the ONLY system listed on the market that follow Article 426 of the NEC for under roof and enclosed panel applications. See a project we did for the prestigious Mont Tremblant Ski Resort!

Heatizon’s Zmesh roof ice melt system is an extremely durable, 9″ bronze screen heating element. Installed under shingles, along eaves and up valleys, they can prevent ice dams, heavy snow loads, and icicle formation on roofs. They have the special ability to be nailed and stapled through for any non-conductive (non-metal) shingle.

This is a popular solution when the appearance of visible heat trace wire might compromise the aesthetics of an expensive building.
