- Freeze Protection/ Pipe trace cables
During winter, problems with frost in fresh water pipes, waste water pipes, cooling water pipes, supply water pipes and sprinkler systems can be avoided by heating the pipes internally or externally. Freeze Protection Cables are the robust and tough cables designed for “on pipe” as well as “in pipe” applications in domestic and commercial requirement to protect water from freezing. They are adaptable to all areas where natural frost protection cannot be achieved.
