Cable Selection

Pipes up to 50mm diameter can be protected by a PW cable installed in a straight line.  When the cable is slightly longer than the pipe, it can be wound in a gentle, evenly spaced helix.  The entire installation (pipe, cable and thermostat) must be covered with insulation (maximum thickness 20mm).

PF-T Tape

Fixing Tape

PF-T fixing tape is supplied in 33m rolls and is ideal for fixing heating cable to the pipe.  We recommend securing the cable at 200mm intervals.

AL-50 Tape

Aluminium Tape

When heating a plastic pipe, the pipe should be wrapped in aluminium tape before the heating cable is installed.  AL-50 is supplied in 45m x 50mm rolls.

Where PW cables are used with plastic pipe that may be empty, the pipe should be wrapped in a double layer of aluminium tape.  One before the cable is installed and after the cable is installed.  The second layer will cover both pipe and cable.

PF-L Warning Labels

Warning Labels

PF-L warning labels are supplied as a pack of 10 and should be fixed to the outside of the insulation at regular intervals.
