Pentair has launched a contractor-grade preassembled heating cable from Raychem. FrostGuard is a system which protects roofs and gutters against ice dams and icicle build up and reduces the risks of freezing and bursting within pipes.

Ideal for small roofs, porches and overhangs as well as metal and plastic pipes, FrostGuard brings several advancements. The cables can be overlapped without causing hotspots or burnouts, offering performance and is available in eight pre-terminated lengths that may plug in to a 120V outlet, allowing installations to be tailored to meet specific requirements. Available as a plug-n-play system, FrostGuard works to prevent structural damage and an unsafe environment that can occur as a result of snow accumulation. In addition, FrostGuard can be hardwired (240V) and includes self-regulating technology to ensure heat is only emitted when and where needed, reducing energy consumption and costs.
