  • Produces ultra long wavelength infrared heat which is ideal for cold-blooded animals

  • Options include an adaptor for use with European plug sockets
  • An optional plug-in thermostat (for UK 13 Amp sockets only) is available for constant monitoring of temperatures

We have specialist expertise in providing heating solutions for many animal related applications having worked with the London Zoological Society of a number of occasions providing designs and equipment for species as diverse as gorillas, sloths and Galapagos Giant Tortoises. We now offer a range of solutions for snake and reptile vivariums in the home and elsewhere. These can also be used to provide ultra long wavelength infra-red heat for palludariums (enclosed indoor tropical gardens).


These heaters meet all UK and EU safety directives. Customers choosing a heater for a reptile or snake should calculate to only heat half to two thirds of the surface area to allow cooler areas for the creature(s) to move to as required. With glass tanks, the heater is fitted below the tank and should have a minimum of 6mm of specialist insulation between the film and the mounting surface to ensure that the heat is directed into the container. This should be cut to the size of the whole base of the vivarium. We offer Vysa-Pron Insulation sheets 125cm x 80cm x 6mm under order code 2438 as the perfect solution to this need.



We also offer a simple electronic plug-in temperature controller for use with any of the above. By setting the temperature, the mat will be switched on whenever the temperature falls to this level.
