Compare Summit’s PRO ice melt system to Company “A”


At a distance, all roof ice melt systems may look alike.
Just how does PRO ice melt system compare?

  • More energy efficient: PRO ice melt system uses 33% LESS energy than Company A.
  • PRO circuits extend 50% FURTHER, so fewer home run circuits.
  • Less heat is lost downward to roof deck: PRO ice melt system has 72% LESS roof contact.
  • Thin extrusion subject to warping: PRO ice melt system is twice as strong.
  • Higher percentage of heat to ice and snow: PRO ice melt system has 45% MORE top surface area.
  • More heat to ice and snow: PRO ice melt system has 86% more convective surface area along the top edge of the panel

Why is Summit better?
Because WE follow
the FOUR SIMPLE RULES:

    1. Minimize heat lost downward to the roof deck due to surface contact.
    2. Maximize heat transfer from the heater cables to the top melting surface.
    3. Maximize heat transfer from the heater cables to the drip edge.
    4. Eliminate air gaps in the heat transfer path. Air is an insulator and the enemy of efficient heat transfer.
