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.
GC-E gel filled end seal will be required to seal the end of the cable.
We suggest that a suitable gel-filled connector is used to connect heating cable to power lead
(typically 2.5mm² twin and earth)
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.
