Step Snowmelt

Roof Deicing Systems

Often an afterthought until there is a major issue, protect your property from costly damage and risk of grave injury created by the buildup of snow and ice damming on roof and gutters.

STEP Roof Deicing low voltage powered radiant heat systems are designed to ensure your roof remains structurally sound and protected while doing so efficiently, safely and hassle free for the life or your roof. Gutter systems are also available to ensure melted snow from the roof is properly drained to the ground.

What is STEP HEAT?

STEP HEAT’s core heating technology advantage is centered around its innovative and award-winning carbon polymer heating elements. Unlike any other, STEP HEAT heating elements are thin (3/64” thick) and flexible, yet rugged and durable to allow for easy installation. This unique and patented material performs like its own temperature sensor to continually adjust its heat output to changing conditions at all points across the heated area.

The result is substantial consumption savings, no wasteful overheating, and elimination of potential roof damage due to thermal cycle shock. STEP Roof Deicing heating elements are covered by a 10-year outdoor use limited warranty and powered using safe, low voltage current (24-50 volts AC or DC) that requires no third wire grounding, or ground fault devices.
