ProRep Heat Mats with Cloth Element.

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.

Size Options:

6 x 11 inches – 6W

11 x 11 inches – 12W

17 x 11 inches – 20W

23 x 11 inches – 28W

The 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!
