In the winter of 2019, Quebec experienced a large number of building roof collapses related to the accumulation of snow and ice.

It is in this context that Tensio was founded in order to offer a solution that directly addresses the issues related to snow laden roofs.

Today, Tensio is the only system on the market that allows for the constant monitoring of the behavior of the structure of a buildingin real time, and according to the actual capacity that each area of a roof is capable of supporting. Tensio has also diversified its portfolio by adding smart sensors that make it possible to know if a roof drain needs to be cleared.

"At Can-Explore, many of our customers asked us whether they should clear snow from the roofs of their buildings, based solely on their own impressions.

They didn't want to clear the snow excessively and unnecessarily, because clearing snow from a building roof represents thousands of dollars each time, not to mention all the complexity involved!

On the other hand, overloading the roof entails high safety risks for the users
