Roof & Gutter
DEAN BENNETT SUPPLY
|WinterGard Wet heat tape is designed for use at 120V using 6
watts per foot in a length as long as 150' of heat tape for roof and
gutter deicing. The jacketing over the metal braid is to protect against
water damage, allowing you to install this in wet locations. Depending
on the temperature you must protect against, the following information
applies. WinterGard Wet is designed to keep ice and snow from building
up along the edge of your roof and in gutters and down spouts.

How to design your roof and gutter deicing
|Calculate the length of heat tape needed. Take
the number of feet of roof edge times the figure from the chart below. Add the
total length of the gutter and down spout. Add 1' for the power connector.
|Example: Overhang of
12", roof edge of 70' with 40' gutter and 15' of down spout. The
12" overhang calls for 2' of roof heating tape cable for every foot of roof
edge, so 70' x 2 = 140' plus 40' for the gutter length, equals 180' of roof
heating cable, plus 15' of down spout equals 195'. Since we are over the maximum
length allowed on one circuit, we must split this into 2 heating circuits.
Assuming your system will start protecting when the temperature drops below 40
degrees F, we can make one roof heat cable on a 20 amp breaker circuit, and the
second roof heat cable on a 15 amp breaker circuit. The roof edge calculated to
140' of roof heating cable plus 1' for the power connection, so we will make
this the 20 amp circuit which could have been a maximum of 150' in total cable
length. The second heating tape cable can be on a 15 amp circuit because it is
shorter than 125', since the gutter is 40', plus 15' of down spout, and 1' for
the power connector plus 3' for a tee splice for a down spout, or a total of 59'
of gutter and down spout heating tape cable.
The Maximum run at 40 degrees F start up temperature is 150' on a 20 amp circuit, and 125' on a 15 amp circuit.
WinterGard Wet Cable Length for Roof
|Roof Overhang||Tracing Width||Tracing Height||Feet of Heating Cable
per foot of roof edge
|12" Eave||2' between loops||18" up from edge||2' per foot of edge|
|24" Eave||2' between loops||30" up from edge||3' per foot of edge|
|36" Eave||2' between loops||42" up from edge||4' per foot of edge|
TO OUR STOCK
|WinterGard Wet 230V heating cable is a
professional-grade, 6 watt per foot, self-regulating electrical heat cable that
can be used to protect pipe from freezing, or can be used for roof deicing. The
heating cable has a construction of nickel-copper bus wires, a self-regulating
conductive core, an insulated jacket, a tinned copper braid and an outer jacket
of polyolefin. There are several advantages to the Wintergard wet
self-regulating heat tape. It can be overlapped, you can cut it to length
without burn out, it saves energy and it will not overheat roofing material or
gutters when used to deice your roof.
WinterGard Wet 230V can be used up to 350 feet to protect pipes for temperatures down to 0 degrees. You can also use it for gutters in lengths up to 250 feet.
