It is not an easy task to measure the real load of snow, since different consistencies like wet- and powder snow or even ice are varying considerably in regard to their weight. For a long time snow masses had to be cut out laboriously employing snow measuring tubes and calculating the load manually. A considerably more convenient way to do this is using an envitron snow scale, capturing and monitoring the snow load in kg/m² for 24/7 via our data portal. In case of an emergency, a snow alarm is triggered. This early warning system helps to detect potential hazard situations in due time in order to initiate a roof snow removal if necessary.
