RGS for Roof and Gutter Snow and Ice Melting

Application: Snow and Ice Melting
RGS self-regulating heating cables are part of the Thermon SnoTraceā„¢ family of snow and ice melting systems. Designed and approved specifically for roof and gutter applications, RGS withstands direct exposure to harsh environmental conditions.

Due to its self-regulating feature, RGS cable will increase power when exposed to ice and snow. When the cable has cleared the area, the power output will decrease to reduce energy consumption.

Easy to Design and Install . . .
Layout of RGS cable for a roof and gutter snow and ice melting system is easy. The step-by-step design guide leads the reader through determining the heating requirements, selecting the cable spacing and establishing the number of heating circuits and accessories required to complete the SnoTrace RGS system. (For more information, refer to the SnoTrace RGS Design Guide, Form CPD1037.)

With cut-to-length parallel circuitry, RGS cables do not require field dimensions of the areas requiring protection.

The cable may be simply pulled from the supply reel, cut to length and terminated in the field with ordinary hand tools. Easy-to-use roof and gutter accessory materials, plus Thermon circuit fabrication kits, complete an installation.

Rugged and Reliable . . .
RGS self-regulating cables are protected by a tinned copper braid for grounding plus a heavy polyolefin outer jacket containing a UV inhibitor. These components maximize protection during cable installation and enable years of exposure to the elements.

RGS self-regulating cable is inspected along its entire length to verify performance. Backed by the first North American heat tracing manufacturer with ISO 9001 registration, RGS cables are designed and manufactured to meet the needs of the commercial construction industry.

Supply voltage 110-120 or 208-277 VAC
