April 20, 2017 02:52 PM Eastern Daylight Time LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NABShow 2017 – Walton Enterprises, Inc. (“Walton De-Ice”),, today announced that one of the world’s most successful pay TV service has updated its satellite earth station with the latest Walton Hot-Air Plenum De-Ice systems. The Walton De-Ice systems have been installed on two 11-meter satellite uplink antennas at the network’s main U.S. broadcast facility outside of New York.

“Our legacy of providing Earth Station Antenna de-icing and weather protection systems for this premiere cable TV brand, dates back twenty-five years,” said Bill Walton, President of Walton Enterprises Inc. “We designed the latest systems to provide customers with the most efficient energy consumption options for their business. We are delighted that this top brand cable programmer with services in over 150 countries has decided to continue to rely on Walton De-Ice products in order to protect its satellite transmissions.”

Walton’s Hot Air De-Ice systems, including the company’s unique Hot-Air Plenum enclosure installed on the rear of an antenna, provide the most reliable and economic antenna de-icing solutions on the market, offering maximum flexibility with electric, natural gas, and liquid propane gas heater options. Unlike other types of heaters such as electric pad systems that can cause reflector distortion, Walton Hot Air De-Ice systems heat the entire antenna reflector uniformly, which minimizes reflector distortion that can cause signal problems, especially at higher Ku- and Ka-Band frequencies.

During the NABShow April 24-27, 2017 in Las Vegas, Walton De-Ice will showcase its latest gas and electric heated Hot-air Plenum and energy-saving Ice Quake and Snow Shield solutions at exhibit OE-907.
