The FTC is a constant power cable designed to protect drainpipes and gutters against freezing. It also guards against the consequences of two phenomena that occur in winter:

  • Gutters obstructed by snowfalls: when snow on the roof melts, water cannot drain away properly and may infiltrate the facades of the building.
  • Icicles hanging from gutters can be dangerous when they fall off. Placed in the bottom of gutters and in drainpipes, the cable maintains a drainage channel for the water and prevents ice from forming.

To ensure that these heating elements enjoy a long service life, we recommend using a control device.

Installation

There are two ways of fitting the cable in the gutter or drainpipe:

  • Thoroughly degrease and dry the support and lay the cable, covering it completely with FTAL aluminium adhesive tape.
  • Glue the cable into the bottom of the gutter every meter or so using SILT 100 silicon adhesive. In drainpipes, hold the cable in place with an FX/CRT hook.
  • Controlling the installation with an FX/CDM2 or FX/CDM3 hygrothermostat will lead to significant energy savings.
