ProRep Cloth Element Heat Mat ProRep Cloth Element Heat Mat – Designed for use with reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Produce ultra long wavelength infrared heat, absorbed by the animal and cage furnishings in much the same way as the sun warms basking animals or also the ground in the wild. This action also allows the animals to warm themselves without necessarily raising the air temperature in the vivarium or tank. Heat mat size and installation method will depend very much on the requirements of the species and also 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 also raise their body temperature sufficiently. You must take care to comply with the safety and installation instructions and the use of a thermostat is essential. Available in two different heating element materials – cloth and printed film – and also in a range of sizes to suit most heating requirements. Also manufactured in the UK to the highest safety standards.
