RGS for Roof and Gutter Snow and Ice Melting
Self-Regulating Heating Cable
Application: Snow and Ice Melting
RGS self-regulating heating cables are part of the
Thermon SnoTrace™ family of snow and ice melting
systems. Designed and approved specifically for roof
and gutter applications, RGS withstands direct exposure
to harsh environmental conditions.
Due to its self-regulating feature, RGS cable will
increase power when exposed to ice and snow. When
the cable has cleared the area, the power output will
decrease to reduce energy consumption.
Easy to Design and Install . . .
Layout of RGS cable for a roof and gutter snow and ice
melting system is easy. The step-by-step design guide
leads the reader through determining the heating
requirements, selecting the cable spacing and establishing
the number of heating circuits and accessories
required to complete the SnoTrace RGS system. (For
more information, refer to the SnoTrace RGS Design
Guide, Form CPD1037.)
With cut-to-length parallel circuitry, RGS cables do
not require field dimensions of the areas requiring
The cable may be simply pulled from the supply reel,
cut to length and terminated in the field with ordinary
hand tools. Easy-to-use roof and gutter accessory materials,
plus Thermon circuit fabrication kits, complete an
Rugged and Reliable . . .
RGS self-regulating cables are protected by a tinned
copper braid for grounding plus a heavy polyolefin
outer jacket containing a UV inhibitor. These components
maximize protection during cable installation and
enable years of exposure to the elements.
RGS self-regulating cable is inspected along its entire
length to verify performance. Backed by the first North
American heat tracing manufacturer with ISO 9001
registration, RGS cables are designed and manufactured
to meet the needs of the commercial construction
