Ice and Snow Protection Cable
This heating cable is designed especially for outdoor ice and snow melting systems. Designed to withstand the harsh conditions, outdoor heating cables must deal on building sites when being covered with tarmac, mastic asphalt, concrete, or sand and block paving.
It is designed with an extra 3rd layer of sacrificial 1.2mm PVC insulation on both the heating cable and the cold-lead cable to protect it against mechanical damage. This cable forms the base of nearly all the systems HDS sell and install.
The extra 1.2mm sacrificial outer insulation also means it can be directly covered with hot tarmac and mastic asphalt, saving time and costs, compared to a conventional heating cable installation.
The 55W/m HDS cable offers great value for money when compared to conventional in-screed / ramp heating cables and trace heating cables running at 20W/m or 30W/m, and the installation time is also greatly reduced. In some cases, it takes less than half the standard installation time.
The HDS cables can be supplied with 10m, 15m, 20m or 25m cold-leads, making the need for extending cold-leads and unsightly cabinets with cable joints unnecessary in most cases.
Heated Driveway Systems Ltd always recommend our cable systems be controlled by one of OJ ice and snow melting controls, with temperature and 2 moisture sensors to ensure the system runs efficiently and automatically.
Cables made by HDS in the UK are supplied with a 10 Year warranty.
