The damage of the heating cable insulation due to the steel reinforcement led to a short circuit and complete interruption of the cable.
We’ve prepared a new chapter "The most common causes of failures" for you, where we will gradually add illustrative examples of the mistakes, that can occur during the installation of our products. You can find the chapter in the Support section.
The cut in the heating cable was repaired with a breakable terminal block and insulated with black electrical insulating PVC tape. As the several layers of adhesive tape show, the person in question certainly didn´t want to underestimate the repair….
The unprofessionally performed repair of heating cables results, unnecessarily, in significantly higher damage.
This is one case when an investor asked for our opinion before the floor was covered. The heating cables are insufficiently attached, the clips are too far apart, and the cable is “floating” on the floor. If the screed had been poured, the cables may have come into contact with one another or even crossed, which would have led to the overheating and interruption of the cable. In the right half of the photo, there are loose cables in the immediate vicinity of the floor probe gooseneck, which would have...
The most common mistakes when laying heating cables and mats
Protection of vineyards from spring frost.
FENIX presents another of its non-traditional applications of heating systems, this time from the wine industry.
Virtually the whole connector has been pulled into the perimeter wall, where there is no reliable heat dissipation. The second mistake is the bending of the heating cable immediately after the connector – heating and the different expansion of materials in the bend create cyclic mechanical stress on the joint, which can lead to its interruption
A very common mistake is the damaging or incorrectly placement of heating cable connectors.
Soil heating in greenhouses or heating of livestock buildings - electric heating cables Ecofloor and radiant heating panels Ecosun have proved their worth in agriculture as well.
Soil heating in greenhouses or heating of livestock buildings - Ecofloor electric heating cables and Ecosun radiant heating panels, which we have been producing and selling worldwide for 30 years already, have also proved their worth here. They help streamline plant production, protect crops from harsh weather and provide thermal comfort for both the animals themselves and the operators of the breeding facilities.
Outdoor Applications 2020
Ahead of upcoming heating season, we bring you a clear summary of all possible outdoor and non-traditional applications of FENIX heating systems in one place.
ECOFILM heating foils for underfloor heating
As in other areas of human activity, ever changing trends marking the popularity of various systems can be observed in heating of buildings. New knowledge and technologies may thus bring systems that were considered obsolete until recently to the forefront yet again.
How to prevent the flow of cold air from windows
In cooperation with CTU UCEEB, we carried out tests investigating the influence of windowsill surface temperatures on limiting the flow of cold air in the direction from a window towards the floor.
Selected Fenix products were tested by the Electrotechnical Testing Institute in Prague-Trója. The aim was to measure the electromagnetic fields of the products according to the valid technical standards. The results show that all of the measured values are well below acceptable limits.
