Self-regulating heating cables of the FST range are used to protect against freezing or to maintain moderate temperatures. Cables of type FST/T, FST/I, FST/TP, and FST/TF comply with the technical evaluation document issued by the CSTB. Cable FST/TP/30 is recommended for protection against freezing in gutters. Cables of type FST/TP and FST/TF can, with the appropriate accessories, be used in an explosive atmosphere. To ensure that these heating elements enjoy a long service life, we recommend using a control device.
