Cable selection for gutters
A single run of GP-18 self-regulating heating cable will protect gutters with widths up to 120mm. For wider gutters add an additional run for every 120mm increase in width. For example a 350mm wide gutter will require 3 runs of cable.
Cable selection for downpipes
For downpipes at the end of a gutter a single run of GP18 self-regulating cable will be required. The cable should extend approximately 500mm below ground level.
For downpipes which interrupt a gutter, a loop of cable should be installed with the end of the loop extending approximately 500mm below ground level.
THK termination kit should be used to prepare one end of the cable for electrical connection and to seal the far end
Electrical connections should be made in a THJ IP66 junction box
A GP-S spacer kit consists of five stainless steel spacers and 10 UV resistant cable ties. The spacers are used to protect the heating cable as it passes over a sharp edge and to maintain the correct spacing when multiple cable runs are installed in a gutter.
