Optimal frost protection with trace heating

Frost damage is expensive and poses a risk to both business and safety. Our trace heating solutions make sure that your pipes (e.g. water lines or gutters) stay protected against frost damage.

Trace heating for protection against frost damage

How do frost protection heating cables work?

Trace heating for protecting against frost damage is made up of a heating conductor or self-regulating heating tape. Using an ambient thermostat (or similar device), these components can be triggered when ambient temperatures fall below 5°C. Alternatively, users can control frost protection heating using a thermostat combined with a pipe sensor. In both cases, once activated, the heating cable heats up and prevents the pipe from freezing. Self-regulating heat conductors also adjust the amount of heat given off based on the ambient conditions.

ZIEGLER ENGINEERING protects you from frost damage

ZIEGLER ENGINEERING is your full-service partner for all things frost protection trace heating. You can find high-quality frost protection heating cables for various performance and temperature requirements in the Faber B2B online shop. We are happy to arrange a consultation to discuss the right frost protection solution for you and offer extensive support for your frost protection project, from planning and implementation to maintenance and monitoring.

Frost protection for roofs, gutters and downpipes

Gutters are constantly exposed to the elements and need just as much protection against frost. A frost protection trace heating system does just that, keeping rainwater flowing with protection you can rely on. We also offer our customers a full-service package: from planning to commissioning and maintenance of your pipe trace heating.

Frost protection for pipes

Frost affects almost all liquid-carrying pipes and when it comes to water lines, this frost can lead to pipe damage or even burst pipes. Equipped with self-regulating heating tape, pipe trace heating eliminates the risk of frost damage.
