PR Cloth Element Heat Mat (47×11″) 59W

Heat Mats are an easy way to provide effective heating requirements within your vivarium. Cloth heat mats produce ultra long wavelength infra red heat. This wavelength is invisible to the human eye and tends to heat furnishings in the cage rather than the air. This action of heating is very similar to the sun and it has the ability to heat anything that it strikes but with the air temperature remaining much lower. Reptiles absorb this in a manner very similar to basking in a natural environment. Heat mats do get warm but provide a very gentle warmth which the animal can sit under or on top of.

The ProRep Cloth Element Heat Mat should cover 1/3 – 1/2 of the floor space within the vivarium. Remember, never install heating and then leave it unattended. Establish that the installation is correct and that the vivarium is being maintained at the desired temperature. Never expose animals to any risk of over heating. Once installed, heating should be tested for a minimum of 48 hours prior to the introduction of livestock. Do not risk the animal?s safety!

All heat mats must be used with a thermostat.

ProRep Heat Mats and Heat Strips are designed for use with reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. They work by producing ultra long wavelength infra red heat that is absorbed by the animal and cage furnishings in much the same way as the sun warms basking animals or the ground in the wild. This action allows the animals to warm themselves without necessarily raising the air temperature in the vivarium or tank.

The choice of heat mat size and installation method will depend very much on the requirements of the species and the design and size of the set up and supplementary heating may be required for species that require a more intense heat or localised basking spots to raise their body temperature sufficiently.

Care must be taken to comply with the safety and installation instructions and the use of a thermostat is essential. ProRep Heat Mats and Strips are available in two different heating element materials – cloth and printed film – and in a range of sizes to suit most heating requirements and are manufactured in the UK to the highest safety standards.
