Custom-designed roof de-icing system for Lead roof
We were commissioned to provide a roof-top deicing system for a prestigious building in Oxford as a result of a roof refurbishment. We coordinated with the main contractor and architect and specified the nVent Raychem self-monitoring IceStop system.
This self-regulating product automatically heats the roof when required to prevent any potentially damaging build up of snow or ice. This means that no matter the weather, the roof will drain effectively and downpipes will continue to function.
For this brief, a key requirement was to make it as aesthetically pleasing and to keep in with the historical nature of the building. Our solution was to source bespoke lead tags to secure all cabling and hardware for a discreet installation.
Consistent performance was ensured by using our specialist design software which helps us to calculate the exact lengths and positioning of heat trace cabling required. After installation, full testing and commissioning were completed so it’s ready to be called into action when the temperature reaches lower levels.
