Schools: Automate Snow Monitoring on Your Roofs With Tensio

Request your personalized Tensio demo to find out how the intelligent system lets you know exactly if, when and where on the roofs of your school buildings it's really necessary to plan snow removal.

When Should Snow Be Cleared From the Roofs of Your School


When Tensio alerts you. It's that simple.

Stop relying on subjective visual interpretations made by individuals, and make informed decisions with customized data based on the actual capacity of each roof zone of your school, cross-referenced with the weather forecast for the next 7 days.

Standardize your processes and equip your teams with Tensio

  • 24/7 monitoring of snow loads according to the actual capacity of each of your buildings and the weather forecast for the coming days.
  • Standardized assessment of snow removal needs for your entire buildings stock.
  • Avoid the risk of service breakdowns or, worse still, collapses.

Face the labor shortage with resilience

  • Transfer of knowledge made easy in the event of staff turnover.
  • Staff shortages: optimal, uniform snow monitoring across all your buildings, even when understaffed.
  • Occupational health and safety: your staff will no longer have to climb onto the roof to monitor snow or perform weighing operations, reducing the risk of falls and injuries.

Focus On Value-Added Tasks While Tensio Monitors Your Roof, 24/7


We calculate your building's load capacity

A structural engineer will determine the capacity limits for each location on your roof, taking into account a number of factors (year of construction, additions over time, snow accumulation history, roof geometry and height, etc.).


Our sensors measure steel stretch in real time

Smart sensors are installed in critical locations, right in the steel structure of your building's ceiling, and measure, in real time, the snow load supported by your roof.


Data is cross-referenced with weather forecasts

The data is then cross-referenced with the weather forecast for the next 7 days (precipitation, temperature and wind). So, if a storm forecast in 4 days' time is likely to cause a location to exceed its limit, Tensio alerts you in advance.
