The formation of ice and snowfall, especially on parabolic antennas, is a major cause in loss of signal transmittal and reception during winter months or for dishes at high altitude locations.
Founded in 1997 and with over 21 years in the industry, Surface Heating Systems, Ltd have successfully developed a range of heating systems compatible with most major manufacturers antennas to prevent the build-up of snow & ice, keeping the antennas operational in the severest of weather conditions and thus preventing interference and costly down time.
Specially shaped soft backed aluminum heating panels are applied direct to the convex side of the antenna and controlled via an ice/snow sensing control unit. Alu-foil systems installed have ranged from diameters of 0.5m up to (at present) 18m with power loadings to suit.

- ASC Signal/CPI
- Channel master
