Roof and Gutter De-Icing

Drexan Energy Systems offers a line of UV-stabilized cables and connection components to eliminate ice build-up in gutters, drains and on roofs.

Backed by the industry’s best warranty!


Ice build-up on roofs and in drains can result in hazards for personnel and equipment. Processes that generate heat during winter conditions can often result in significant ice build-up over doorways and on rooflines that can cause structural damage.

Drexan HeatTracer MultiTrace products are ideal for maintaining gutters, downspouts and roofs free of snow and ice buildup on buildings and other structures. MultiTrace is designed to self-regulate its heat output by tailoring its current flow to ambient conditions in the most extreme climatic temperatures. This cable can be cut to length in the field allowing for quick and easy installation.

Drexan HeatTracer products 

  • Serve the most demanding environments including hazardous and non-hazardous areas, as well as areas where corrosive exposure may be of concern.
  • Are certified to; CSA (CUS), UL standards for use throughout North America, ATEX for Europe, and are suitable for both metal and non-metal pipes, tanks and vessels.

The integrity of a trace heating system depends upon on how accurately the cable is selected and how well it is installed. An improperly designed and installed trace heating system could result in cable failure and possible physical injury.
