Raychem Frostguard System

FrostGuard Ready to Install Frost Protection Kits

Our range of FrostGuard products are designed for domestic water pipes and are ideal for boiler condensate pipes. Simple to install - just plug in and go!

Pre-terminated, self regulating, 10W/m frost protection cable for pipes. The product includes a 2.5m electrical cable and UK mains plug for quick and easy connection to the power supply and instructions.

Unlike constant wattage cables this self regulating cable will not overheat and does not require a thermostat to regulate the temperature. The cable adjusts its power output dependent upon ambient temperature, therefore more heat is generated automatically when needed and less heat in warmer ambient conditions, saving energy.

Frostguard-ECO (R-FG-CONT-ECO-UK)

Raychem part number: 1244-011308

The Raychem FrostGuard ECO pipe frost protection control device gives an 80% energy saving delivering heat only when it is needed.

The new control device is an accurate, electronic device with an external sensor. It can be placed on the pipe for line sensing control or in the ambient for pipe frost protection of heated systems. FrostGuard-ECO is "plug and play" with no electrical wiring involved, simply plug the heating cable into the controller and the controller into the electrical socket for instant frost protection.

Unlike many domestic pipe freeze protection control products, FrostGuard-ECO uses electronic switching control rather than the older bi-metal switching technology which is far less accurate. This means that FrostGuard-ECO delivers heat only when needed, saving energy over the more basic solutions and can be retro-installed onto an existing FrostGuard heating kit installation.
