I've also looked around for this stuff in the UK but no-one seems to do it.
Heat cable - no problem, but tape - all US suppliers.

Could we use US heat tape on UK mains?
(That may be an incredibly stupid question by the way - I'm not that electrically minded :? )

you will need to use a voltage converter most likely. In the u.s they run at 115v but the u.k (andi think the rest of europe) runs at 240v. Its not a big deal these days tho as they come the same size as any other adaptor.
my dad wont let me use heat tape as "its bloody dangerous"
shame,wi was going to make a cheap rack out of storage drawers, not im gonna have to build one out of wood and put a groove in it for the heat cable. effort.
