What distance should be between the mounting tapes with fixed cables?
The minimal distance between the cables should be 5 cm. When installing the CTAV-10 heating cable, usually the distance is 8-10 cm, and for the CTAV-18 heating cable installation, the distance is 12-15 cm. The distance between heating cable depends on the power per square meter installed.
The distance between the heating cables depends on the length of the heating cable installed, and the heated area, which should be calculated as follows:
C-C = Heated area (m²)/ Cable length (m) = 10 m² / 69m = 0.145 m.
The mounting tape has hooks with a distance of 2.5cm, so after calculating the distance between the cables, you can calculate to which hook the heating cable should be attached.
