ProRep's 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 comes into contact with, while the air temperature remains much lower. Reptiles absorb this in a manner very similar to basking in a natural environment.
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. Supplementary heating may be required for species that require a more intense heat or localised basking spots to raise their body temperature sufficiently.
This High Temperature version is designed to be fixed your vivarium's wall or ceiling through the use of the special adhesive which is applied to the heat mat.
These heat mats produce a higher temperature than standard heat mat models. ProRep recommend that care must be taken to comply with the safety and installation instructions, they must not be covered and the use of a thermostat is essential.
