Tuff Cable Roof Deicing, Floor Heating and Snow Melting Systems
Tuff Cable is a durable, 10 gauge coated copper cable that is chemical and gasoline resistant. This heating element is designed to be installed in concrete, asphalt, a mortar bed, under pavers or thin set. Applications for Tuff Cable include total space heating, radiant floor heating, snow melting and roof deicing under metal roofs..
Tuff Cable is perfect for snow and ice melting on ramps, stairs, walkways and driveways. Tuff Cable is set 2" below the surface. The heating element is attached to remesh (welded wire fabric) which acts as an anchor for the Tuff Cable and provides additional structural integrity to concrete slabs.
Tuff Cable can be retrofit into existing concrete or asphalt. Grooves are saw cut into the pavement 1/4" wide and 1" deep. Tuff Cable is installed in the grooves and filled with Backer Rod then sealed with a polyurethane sealant for concrete or a silicone based sealant for asphalt..
The Tuff Cable heating system provides innovative methods for radiant heating. Utilizing state of the art components and low-voltage electricity, our systems are virtually maintenance free, and are safe and efficient in operation. Tuff Cable has a 25 year warranty and is engineered to provide simple and problem-free solutions. Our low-voltage products have been in use since 1978.
Tuff Cable can also be used for Roof Deicing under metal roofing materials using our patented Heatizon Heatsink Kit or Invizimelt Panel. This method of roof deicing provides longevity, safety and a permanent solution to ice dam, snow load, and icicle problems.
