Gutter heating

The formation of ice on buildings, roof gutters and roof surfaces during winter results in heat losses in buildings and leads to unfavourable solar radiation. The dew water resulting from this is unable to flow away and freezes. Our electrical roof gutter heating keeps areas at risk

The formation of ice on buildings, roof gutters and roof surfaces during winter results in heat losses in buildings and leads to unfavourable solar radiation. The dew water resulting from this is unable to flow away and freezes. Our electrical roof gutter heating keeps areas at risk reliably free of ice and snow, and therefore prevents the formation of icicles (risk to people and goods), the icing up and bursting of downpipes, also in ground areas, the flooding of buildings and damage to the external façade.

Our gutter heating systems are prefabricated with seamless sleeve transitions and chemically-resistant fluoropolymer-insulation sleeves and can be quickly fitted without extensive work. In the case of simple systems, the electrical connection is already equipped with a connector and is also suitable for installation by a layman.

Gutter heating systems are suitable for multiple applications with pitched roofs, half-pipe and box guttering. In the case of standard half-pipe roof gutters the energy consumption can be calculated at approx. 50 to 60 W/m. This also applies to downpipes, which must be heated up to the frost line (approx. 1 m into the soil).

 

Important: When generating requirement calculations or length calculations it is necessary to consider that it may be necessary to run the heating line multiple times.
