As magical as it looks, a thick layer of snow on a large, commercial roof can have heavy consequences. Heavy snowfall is currently a leading cause of roof sagging and damage in communities throughout the United States and Canada. Even well-engineered buildings can struggle under the weight of dense, wet snow, and many business owners don’t notice the danger signs until it’s too late.
This is where predictive monitoring is a “must-have" service for facility maintenance managers in northern climates. It is not convenient, safe, or affordable to have teams of workers entering your place of business or buildings unless absolutely needed. Roof deflection alarm systems from Safe Roof Systems provide safe roof monitoring, and in turn, allow facility managers to maintain optimum roof conditions while safely saving on shovel labor costs.
Predictive monitoring systems from SRS automatically alert facility managers when and where roof load mitigation is required. This technological strategy allows businesses to scale their responses and balance those needs with safe staffing levels. With a roof predictive monitoring program in place, businesses can scale their snow removal plans in real-time. That’s essential in northern climates where the level of danger to a property can change as quickly as the weather.
