Raychem Wintergard System
The Wintergard system, comprising of FS-A-2X, FS-B-2X & FS-C-2X is a legacy system which has been superseded by the XL-Trace system.
The FS-C10-2X cable is still available to protect hot water systems.
We do have limited stocks available to extend existing installs, or for small new installs, however for new larger installs it is suggested to use the newer XL-Trace system.
The products below are shown for historical / legacy reasons but limited stock of some are still available.
The Raychem Wintergard products shown are suitable for any pipe material (copper, threaded pipes, stainless steel pipes, plastic pipes and composite metal pipes) without restriction by using the appropriate fixing tape to attach the cable to the pipework.
Connection of the cable is using the Raychem Rayclic system.
