Emerson EasyHeat RG trace cable de-icing system

May 13, 2021 – Emerson’s EasyHeat RG trace cable de-icing system aims to help building owners dodge serious problems caused by ice accumulation on building roofs, and inside gutters and downspouts.

The system includes everything necessary for a “complete, cost-efficient and hassle-free installation”, says Emerson, including cut-to-length RG trace cables, delivering 12 W/ft output; EasyHeat controls to sense both moisture and temperature, optimizing power consumption; downspout hangers, power connection kits and end-seals for completing the system.

Being self-regulating, the trace cable automatically varies heat output according to surrounding temperatures. The cable’s outer jacket is both waterproof and UV-resistant, while a tinned copper braid installed over two protective inner jackets provide a continuous ground path. The system is suitable for use on asphalt or wood shingles, metal roofing, synthetic rubber, thermoplastic, modified bitumen, and more.
