Thermon RGS

Roof & Gutter Heating

Thermon RGS is a heat tracing cable which is especially designed for snow and ice melting on roofs and gutters.

Thermon RGS Heat Tracing Cable

RGS heat tracing cable is able to withstand years of exposure to harsh climates due to its heavy-duty polyolefin outer jacket. For extra protection and asphalt roofs, a fluoropolymer outer jacket option can be supplied.

The heat tracing cable has self-regulating properties which automatically adjusts to changes in the ambient conditions. This prevents snow and ice build-up to roofs, gutters and downpipes which can be the cause of burst pipes, cracked and deformed gutters and water ingress.

It can be also be used as a safety precaution in harsh climates where dangerous levels of snow or ice can form and become a hazard if the additional weight threatens the integrity of the building construction. There have been many examples where the additional weight of snow has caused a buildings roof to collapse. 

Snow and ice sensors can be used to switch the trace heating system on and off automatically.
