Roof & Gutter Heat Trace Cables

Commercial Grade & Self-Regulating

Engineered Roof Deicing’ Heat Trace Cable is perfect for use with heating your roof and/or gutter, with our deicing technology, or with your other outdoor heating needs. The heat cable is designed to serve the most demanding environments including hazardous and non-hazardous areas, as well as areas where corrosives may be of concern.

Heat Trace Cable is designed to maintain temperatures up to 150°F (65°C) and can withstand temperatures up to 185°F (85°C). The heat cable is certified to all applicable CSA (CUS) standards for use throughout North America. It is suitable for metallic and non-metallic roofs, pipes, gutters, tanks and vessels.

National Electrical Codes both require ground-fault protection of equipment. Ground-fault protection of components and each heating cable branch circuit reduces the danger of fire caused by continuous electrical arcing resulting from improper installation or damage to the heating cable. Following are some of the ground-fault breakers that satisfy this equipment protection requirement: Square D Type QOB-EPD or QO-EPD and Cutler Hammer (Westinghouse) Type QBGFEP.


Does your home get snowfall in excess of 6 in. per storm?
