Using attic systems from Froststop.ie we can prevent frozen or burst pipes in the home, during periods of cold Irish weather.

Most believe Insulation protects pipes from freezing but if freezing temperatures persist day & night like the last two arctic cold spells of 2010 frost will penetrate pipe insulation after approx 48 hours. Plumbers reported that 80% of burst pipe work in attics were insulated. Pumping cavities and adding more insulation to the attic puts pipe work at higher risk as attic temperatures will be colder due to less heat loss through the ceiling which needs to be done to reduce heating costs. Insulating under the felt & slate won’t guarantee pipe work from freezing but in the majority of homes will cost more than a Froststop system.

Attic heaters or Infra red bulbs are not guaranteed to prevent pipes freezing as most heat generated is lost through the felt & slate with only a localised area being heated. Running times are constant as ambient temperature is used to control these products so running cost is an issue. Another important factor to consider when choosing a product is Safety, is the product a fire hazard? Any product with a glow heating element or unsealed wiring can be a fire hazard due to dust or moisture in an attic.

Paths & Driveways

Slippery or dangerous paths and driveways can be made safe and usable, using our heated cable systems. Our systems are especially useful in domestic and publically accessible buildings. Examples would include sloped driveways outside of homes, which might otherwise require a vehicle to be towed out after heavy snowfall or icy conditions.

Access paths and steps to buildings such as homes, shops, hospitals and care homes can be made safer for all visitors. more

Agriculture & Gardening

Correct humidity and temperature are vital in relation to the health, comfort and productivity of pigs and cattle. Our heating systems help ensure these factors are properly taken care of.

Commercial gardeners and home gardeners can help ensure greater plant yields and healthier plants through the use of propagation systems.
