Gutters & Downpipe Freeze Protection DIY Kits

Snow that has built up on a roof will start to melt as a result of either exposure to the sun, or from heat rising from the building below. As the melted snow runs from the roof into cold gutters and drainpipes, it can then re-freeze forming layers of ice which can continue to build up until the flow is blocked. This can result in damaged drains and gutters. Water can, in addition, get into the roof and building, leading to expensive structural damage such as broken roof tiles, damaged plaster, facades, etc.

Ezeheat has the solution in the form of  IcSR(e). The self-regulating characteristics of the heating cable mean that the cable can adjust its heat output in accordance with its temperature. It cannot overheat or burnout, even when overlapped. The Ezeheat Guttertrace system is easy to install. The cable is laid along the gutters and in drainpipes (as shown in the application guide) to keep water flowing freely. The Gutter Trace heating cable is suspended in the downpipe without the need for spacers.

IcSR(e) 80°C (176°F) (Power-on)

Continuous exposure up to:
IcSR(e) 100°C (212°F) (Power-off)
