Heavy snow loads can cause glass and its related structures to collapse, if proper snow-removal techniques are not practiced.
Snow accumulates everywhere in winter, even on a glass canopy. Thanks to the HeatVision® electrically heated glass, clicking the “ON” button starts a heating system that melts the snow, making the glass canopy transparent again.
The system can be turned in auto-mode. The snow sensor detects snowflakes and automatically starts heating the glass canopy to 15°C. The canopy remains clean the whole time, as the heated glass turns snow into water.
Where you can use the snow-melting glass:
- Glass roofs
- Glass greenhouses and conservatories
- Glass floors and staircases
- Glass canopies
