Formator: HeatVision® as snow-melting system for overhead glazing

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
