How to Prevent Roof Collapse This Winter


Roof Collapse

The last thing you want to happen to your business building is a roof collapse. This endangers people and threatens property and equipment. But with the heavy snowfall as winter advances, this may be a possibility, especially for older buildings. To prevent this, install a snow weight alarm.

The alarm detects increasing pressure from the accumulation of rooftop snow and informs you through email. This alarm is a system consisting of sensors that activate in response to that pressure and calculates the load based on your building’s structure.

An Alarm System That Prevents Problems

This snow weight alarm is accurate because it deals with more than just the average weight of snow. It also pinpoints high-pressure areas that threaten the building’s structural integrity. This is significant because the snow load is not distributed evenly but is heavier in areas where there is snow with higher moisture content and ice buildup.

With roof monitoring technology, you know what the snow load is every day. And you can plan when to remove that snow before it gets too heavy. This technology helps you make good decisions that protect your business from one of the hazards of winter weather — roof collapse.
