Product Features 

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide is an industrial/commercial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipework and vessels in the construction and refrigeration industries.  It can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. It's power output self-regulates in response to the pipe temperature.  It's self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide is available with a corrosion resistant thermoplastic outer jacket (FLVw-CT) and, when greater corrosion resistance is required, with a fluoropolymer outer jacket (FLVw-CF).

The installation of Freezstop Low Voltage Wide 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.
