HotEdge LLC is the first and only company to complete the rigorous process necessary to test and certify an entire roof edge ice melt system and earn the right to be UL Listed as evidenced by a UL Certificate of Compliance.
All other roof edge ice melt systems only use UL Listed ice melt cable and accessories. The distinction is an important one since without it, potential homeowners and businesses have little assurance that all of the components will function together in a safe and effective manner. The ‘UL in a circle’ logo gives installers, Architects, homeowners and building owners peace of mind. They know that the components have been tested as an entire system. Inspectors see the UL Listed labeling, and they know they can rely on UL’s intensive testing regimen to confirm the roof edge ice melt system’s safe operation.

PLEASE KNOW, a roof edge ice melt system is not UL Listed if it only lists heat cable and accessories! It must list the product that houses a UL Listed heat cable, i.e. HotEdge Rail! HotEdge Rail is a roof edge ice melt system that prevents ice dams and icicles from forming on all roof edge structure, new or existing.
