The 18” Eave Panel System will utilize three feet of cable per foot. Products are designed for 11mm or 14 mm commercial grade heat cables, mineral insulated (MI) cable or 3/8” Radiant PEX tubing *Recommended Commercial GradeSelf Regulating Heat Cable (GM-X2 12 Watt per foot in 100-130 VAC or 208-277 VAC). • Optional Items Ambient and/or Moisture Sensor Controllers, Self regulating heat trace for gutters and downspouts • Electrical Requirements N.E.C. 426-28 requires 30 mA Ground Fault circuit protection for snow and ice melting applications Specifications Thermal Technologies T-Panel’s simple integrated drip edge and color matched cover is designed to eliminate icicles, ice dams, and snow at the roof’s edge. Thermal Technologies innovative roof snow and ice elimination systems are attractive and cost effective. They ensure that the building’s owner will not have the frustration, property damage, and costs associated with water damage, caused by the inability of the buildings’ roof to properly drain water during winter months. Thermal Technologies revolutionary roof de-icing systems will extend your roof life and reduce the destructive situations that snow and ice can inflict on any roof. Mounting Eave panels are installed with sealant & roofing screws. Screws and sealant may be replaced by 3M VHB Adhesive Tape, TAMPRO Flashing Cement or Rainbuster 14000 Silicone. The lip of the eave panel fits below the shingles, cedar shake, corrugated metal roof panels, or slate roof panels, facilitation proper moisture drainage off the roof structure. T-Panel eave panels fit below shingles, provide a drip edge into the gutter, and eliminate ice & snow in the roof’s freeze zone.

The T-Panel System
How to select the correct heat channel All of our products can incorporate different types of heat sources, such as, 14 mm self regulating heat cable, Mineral Insulated Cable and Hydronic / Radiant Tubing. Thermal Technologies’ technically advanced aluminum alloy extrusions are manufactured with specific sized channels for specific sized heat cables. Note: All products manufactured by Thermal Technologies incorporate the same or similar superior internal configuration as the systems shown here. The same installation parameters with regards to channels vs. heat source apply to all of the other panel system products manufactured and sold by Thermal Technologies. This picture shows the correct cable in the correct channel. The separation between the snap-loc top and base unit are designed and manufactured within tight tolerances. This separation eliminates the characteristics of a cover panel supported by the base panel, yet enables direct heat transfer or direct thermal conductivity to occur between the heat source and the base and top units. No other product designed, manufactured or sold compares to the exceptional quality and outstanding performance of the products offered by Thermal Technologies. If multiple sized channels are available, only fill one size on each side of the panel with the correct cable or tubing.

3/8” pex Tubing

14mm cable

Ice Stop cables are designed to be installed within the larger of the two channels. This channel is sized for approximately 14mm heat cable. 3/8 in. PEX tubing or similar sized radiant tubings are designed to be installed within the round channel. This channel is sized for approximately 3/8 inch radiant PEX tubing.
