RAYCHEM FrostGuard energy-efficient preassembled heating cable offers an easy-to-use solution to prevent frozen pipes and avoid the significant expense of repair associated with frozen or burst pipes.

240 V FrostGuard hardwire version, featuring a 6-ft power cord for terminating in a junction box, are available in 6, 12 18 and 24ft lengths.

Key benefits

• Easy to design and install; simply fix to the pipe, cover in pipe insulation, and plug into the GFI-protected electrical supply.

• Safe: no overheating possible: even when overlapped or closely spaced

• Energy-efficiency through self-regulating technology

• Ideal for metal and plastic pipes up to 2-1/2 inches in diameter

• Maintenance-free: no moving parts

Note: 30-mA equipment or 5-mA personnel ground-fault protection must be used on each FrostGuard heating cable branch circuit.
