Moisture proof terrarium heat mat with PVC coating. This heating mat can be used in terrariums, mini greenhouses, seeding trays and other applications where gentle heating to moderate temperature is needed. The mat can be positioned under a terrarium or placed on a terrarium wall.
PVC coated heat mats are splash water and humidity proof. They can be used in humid conditions and inside terrariums, assuming that they will not be exposed to any physical damage. This heat mat type is originally designed for heating seeding trays in high humidity greenhouse cultivation, but it is also very suitable for terrarium use.
This heat mat has a moisture proof PVC coating, but it must not be used in wet conditions or submerged in water. The surface of the heat mat is not scratch or puncture proof.
Heat mat surface should not be broken. This heat mat should not be folded or bent sharply, cut or punctured. Unprotected heat mat should not be used in situations where it might be exposed to sharp animal teeth or claws or other damage.
Heat mat should never be placed under weight. If heat mat is squeezed under a heavy object, the structure of the mat will be damaged or broken. Therefore, a heat mat must not the placed under terrarium bottom if the terrarium is not standing on small legs which will protect the heat mat from being squeezed by the terrarium weight. There must always be enough airflow around the mat in order to avoid overheating. Two heat mats should not overlap.
Heat mats can be used in terrariums, mini greenhouses, seeding trays and other applications where gentle heating to moderate temperature is needed. Heating mat can be used to heat a specific target, for example a seeding pot soil or a slate a reptile is lying on, or it can maintain suitable air temperature inside a closed space.
Heating mat can be positioned under a terrarium or placed on a terrarium wall. Heating efficiency is better if the mat is placed inside the terrarium, if it is applicable in the situation.
