Trace heating cables provide focused and controllable heat to prevent pipes and gutters from freezing, or to maintain process temperatures. The major benefits of trace heating are that the specialist cables ‘self regulate’ their temperature so they cannot overheat, and they can also be cut to length during installation to ensure the perfect fit, every time.
Heat Mat supply a wide variety of high quality European and US manufactured trace heating cables suitable for the vast majority of applications. These heating cables are backed up by a comprehensive range of trace heating, ice and snow melting thermostats and wiring accessories.

Trace Heating cables are significantly more intelligent than ‘standard’ heating cables. They are created by placing a self-regulating heating element between two bus wires, one live and one neutral. When power is connected to these bus wires the heating element receives 230V, causing it to heat up. Each element contains specialist compounds that change resistance depending on their temperature, leading to the power output of the heating element falling as the cable gets warmer.
