Our blog on Roof and Gutter Heating Cable
This pre-assembled cable has been designed
for the sole purpose of preventing the formation of ice dams on pitched roofs
with non-combustible tab shingles and in metal or plastic gutters and
downspouts. (Not for use on metal roofs because of the
risk of overheating, use self-regulating cable instead such as EasyHeat PSR, or the Danfoss RX). It provides drainage channels so that as natural thawing occurs,
water has a path to flow off the roof and through the gutters and downspouts.
This cable is not for use on a flat roof nor is it intended to clear the roof of
snow and ice. The installation of this product is simple and it can be used with
either metal or plastic gutters. Read and follow all instructions and pay
particular attention to the following points: Install the cable when the outside
temperature is above 50˚F because at lower temperatures shingle material may be
brittle; Clear all leaves, pine needles and debris from the roof, gutters and
downspouts before operating the cable. Do not plug the cable in unless it has
been completely uncoiled or it will be damaged.
Each package contains one ready-to-install cable, shingle clips, cable spacers and complete installation instructions. You will also need a tape measure, marker, gloves, ladder and a weatherproof GFCI outlet with control switch.
Two-year limited warranty.
Roof & Gutter Cables prevent water damage caused by
snow and ice buildup. Once again, working in conjunction with Underwriters
Laboratories (UL), Wrap-On was granted the industry's first listing for the newly
created category, "Roof and Gutter De-icing Cable for Metal or Plastic/Vinyl
Gutters and Downspouts."
The Roof and Gutter cables work in conjunction with natural sunlight and a building's own heat dissipation. When natural thawing occurs, the cables create a channel that allows water to flow off the roof and through gutters and downspouts. Easy to operate, they simply plug in for years of trouble-free operation.
The Wrap-OnŽ Company has been manufacturing electric pipe heating cables, roof & gutter cables and a variety of other winterization products for more than fifty seven years. Wrap-On introduced the first pipe heating cable to the market in the early 1940's. Other products such as roof & gutter cables and pipe insulation soon followed. In the years since, we have continually improved and updated our products to meet the changing needs of our customers.
Wrap-On Roof and Gutter Cables are the ideal preventative maintenance for snow and ice buildup. They create channels on the roof, in the gutter and in the downspout that allow melting ice and snow to flow freely, eliminating ice dams and reducing icicle formation. They can be used safely on all metal, plastic and vinyl gutters and downspouts and are UL listed and CSA certified. Packaging includes detailed instructions and all necessary hardware.
Even in below freezing weather, snow on the roof will often thaw because of heat from the sun and heat loss from the house through the roof. As this melted snow reaches the roof overhang it refreezes.
Here there is no heat loss so the roof surface is much colder. As this melted snow refreezes again and again on the roof overhang, an ice dam is formed. Soon water backs up under
shingles, and leaks into the house. It's not those big icicles that do the real damage, it's
the ice you don't see that backs up in gutters and under shingles. When the
ice melts it can really do a number on repair costs. Roof
de-icing cable prevents this water and ice damage by providing a clear path
for melting water to flow off the roof. It keeps roof edges, gutters and downspouts ice-free.
Versatile design adapts to most roof and gutter configurations.
This product is intended for the sole use of
preventing ice dams from forming on inclined roofs with tab shingles, in
gutters and downspouts. This roof de-icing cable is not intended for use
as a snow melting system to clear roof of ice and snow.
includes the Electric Roof De-icing Cable (Residential Grade, 120 Volt, 5 Watts/foot)
and 6 foot power cord with plug and enough roof clips
and downspout clip cable spacers to complete the installation.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Cable Installation Patterns (One cable may cover both roof and gutter areas, or separate cables can be used.)
Selecting and installing the right cable is simple, just follow these five easy steps:
1. Measure roof overhang and select corresponding factor:
2. Measure length of roof to be protected and
multiply by factor to obtain length of cable required for the roof.
3. Measure length of gutter (if any).
4. Measure length of cable to go around dormers (if any).
5. Measure length of downspouts. Multiply by 2 if double cable is used in downspout.
Total length of cable required is sum of 2, 3, 4 and 5. Select from the standard lengths to meet your needs. Available lengths are shown on the top of this box.
Examples: Order cable length as follows: 3.3 times the roof length for 12" overhang; 4.2 times roof length for 24" overhang; 5.2 times roof length for 36" overhang.

|Wrap-OnŽ Roof and Gutter Cable Clips #14500. 15 extra roof clips and 8 extra cable spacers (enough are already included with each kit to complete the installation, but extra can be ordered)|
Current Sensing Device:
|Wrap-On Current Sensing Device - #18900. Detect if your roof and gutter cable is operating. Plug the cable you want to monitor into it and observe the indicator light. 10-foot cord, sensor with light on cord, 1500 watt/12 amps at 120 VAC capacity and a receptacle with a piggyback plug design.|
Optional RS-2 Roof Cable Deicing Control:
Control expense and energy use in electric roof cable protection automatically with Roof Sentry (RS-2). The RS-2 requires two conditions to be present before it energizes roof deicing cable: cold temperatures (ON, 38°F; OFF, 48°F) and the presence of runoff water from the roof in contact with its sensor wire. If only one of the conditions exists, the control will not energize the cable.
