|Danfoss RX Roof and Gutter|
DANFOSS RX ice and snow melting systems keep roofs, drainpipes and gutters safe throughout winter…
Large icicles, frost erosions, heavy loads of snow...
Older buildings are a visible testament to the damaging effects of ice and snow which can destroy fronts, roofs, drainpipes, and gutters. Old roofs are often poorly insulated or have substandard support structures, and such shortcomings can enable water to enter the building. Once winter frost sets in, damage is often inevitable. Industrial buildings with flat roofs, on the other hand, often give in to excessive weight loads generated by accumulations of water, ice, or snow.
|This system should be installed by a qualified contractor or handy homeowners. In some cases, the need to install splice kits, end seals and power connection kits may be necessary. Or, any business in your local area that is familiar with heat cable installation can install these systems. Please refer to the installation guide for detailed information on how to install your Danfoss RX System. Feel free to contact us with questions regarding installation or help planning your project.|

|A DANFOSS GX ice and snow melting system for roofs consists of a heating cable, an electronic thermostat and installation accessories. DANFOSS RX ice and snow melting system for roofs can be installed in virtually any type of roof construction for private, business and institutional projects. The wide range of DANFOSS RX products provide the possibility to apply the system on metal, bitumen, graveled or tile roofs. Depending on the problem, the DANFOSS RX system can be applied on the roof edge, drain pipes, roof gutters and valleys.|
|DANFOSS RX is an investment in safety and peace of mind, putting to rest concerns about unexpected property damage and about driver and pedestrian safety. In addition, the system is a financially sound investment as roofs, drainpipes, and gutters are notoriously expensive to replace or repair. Given that the cost of our ice and snow melting system is comparable to the expense of replacing and repairing what was damaged by the weather in just one winter season, one can easily see that a fast pay-back on investment in a DANFOSS RX system is guaranteed.|
|The choice of cable, thermostat and sensor depends in part on the size, type and construction of the roof, and also on the overall requirements of the particular installation. Most applications are best served by using our flex DTIP-8/10 cable.
Our two main thermostats are the Danfoss GX 316 and the Danfoss GXstat 850. The GX 316 works well with smaller roof and gutter systems, and it is optimally coupled with an outdoor sensor. Larger roof and gutter systems typically require the use of our GXstat 850, which combines a moisture and a temperature sensor in one apparatus.
Outdoor temperature sensors are intended for use on roofs and in gutters, while moisture sensors and wire sensors are normally fitted inside gutters – where melted runoff collects. Their actual number and placement will depend on the size and nature of the particular installation.
