Rail heating for Automatic gates

In winter, ice may form on the rail, and interfere with sliding gates.


The hollow shape of the rail allows a heating cable to be inserted nearest the surface to be heated, without any complex fixings. Heat transfer through most metals is good and allows a reduction in electrical consumption.

If the rail used is not hollow, then the only way is to heat it is from underneath (in concrete, under stones…). For each problem, Flexelec can provide its solution.

The heating cable FLEXTRACE  FTSH/TF/20 solves icing issues and increased the temperature of the rail by approximately 15°C.

FTSH parallel zones cables are particularly suitable for maintaining temperatures of up to + 150°C.
Their great flexibility down to – 70°C means that this version is ideal for heat tracing in industrial refrigeration or in countries with very harsh climates.
To ensure that these heating elements enjoy a long service life, we recommend using a control device.
