Reptile Systems Heating Strip 20W 60cmx15cm are made of a polymer foil which is then silk printed with an exclusive electrically conductive ink, this gives our heat mats their ultra flat profile. The features are the same as the mat with the distribution of the heating compound allowing for a gradual decrease of temperature towards the heating strips edge reducing the risk of glass cracking from thermal shock. High thermal response coupled with uniformity of heat over the rest of the surface is guaranteed. Thermistor properties are also built into each mat as an additional safety feature.
The strips are Ideal for heating reptiles, amphibians, insects, birds, and small animals in the same way as the mats but for those that do not require such a wide heating source. They have the same adhesive backing making installation on the side or back of a glass vivarium trouble free. They can also be used for under tank heating provided the substate is not too deep, use the feet provided to ensure good airflow.
Normally used for heating smaller multiple enclosures such as hatchling racks and racking systems. They offer the same type of application as heat cables but without the bulk because of their slim profile, making use and enclosure construction much easier.
Always use with a suitable thermostat such as the Reptile Systems on/off thermostat.
