Product Features

Aluminium FailSafe is a unique patented industrial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used on high temperature applications where the cable needs to withstand temperatures up to 300°C(572°F).  It can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations. 

Aluminium FailSafe does not require any temperature control to protect the cable as with other high temperature heating cables.

Aluminium FailSafe is approved for use in non-hazardous, and hazardous areas to world wide standards. It's self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.

Aluminium FailSafe will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. It's power output self-regulates in response to the pipe temperature.

The installation of Aluminium FailSafe is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits. See Product, Application and Documentation Links below.
