The significance of underfloor heating systems in such a learning environment is so important; this is why the UFH specialists Flexelec are considered a well-needed service. The use of self-regulating electric trace heating cables is necessary in maintaining warmth within the pipes of a building in cold weather and allowing the prevention of freezing in effect. Without this installed, the freezing of pipes has strong potential to cause water problems and possibly result in the pipes bursting. Such an occurrence would cause major disruption to a school or University, with classrooms out of use and closure of certain parts of the building, possibly even the entire building. The cables work so that the heat output is conditioned by the temperature, e.g. the temperature rises as the specially engineered resistive core is reduced, and vice versa.
Flexelec provide either stainless-steel or tinned-copper braid cables to ensure protection against mechanical shocks, prevent defrosting, and maintain temperature constant in pipelines and during chemical processes. In this current economic climate, it’s important that this type of product works well to ensure you won’t have to reinstall or renew it a year later; schools and Universities, in particular, need to save as money for learning resources. Significantly Flexelec’s electrical trace heating cables are made for the long term in terms of functionality, durability and reliability. Furthermore, Flexelec offers a wide range of cables which provide a selection of heat trace solutions and can be suited to every particular need, varying from refrigeration, heating elements or specialised cables required for gutters.
