Heat Mat gutter heating systems ensure that gutters and downpipes do not get blocked or damaged by ice or snow and allow melting snow on the roof to drain freely. This prevents dangerous icicles forming or snow build-up.

A specialist gutter heating thermostat is available to monitor air temperature and a moisture sensor can be fitted into gutters to reduce running costs. These devices will only activate the system when freezing temperatures and moisture are detected to reduce running costs by up to 80%.


  • Prevents gutters collapsing due to the weight of ice and snow.
  • Prevents water ingress.
  • Ensures walkways and roads beneath roofs do not suffer from falling icicles or snow.
  • Ideal for properties with varied rooflines or very tall buildings.

A wide variety of thermostats and control options available suited to each systems individual requirement including:

  • FRO-16A-GSTA 3.6kW gutter heating thermostat with air temperature sensor.
  • FRO-GUT-SENS a Gutter moisture detection sensor.
