A simple, safe and effective solution to heating melamine wooden vivarium's. Especially suited to snakes and terrestrial geckos.
For a long time, it has been difficult to use heat mats within vivarium's safely. The largest problem being, substrates naturally create thermal blocking by not allowing air to flow freely around the heat mat itself. Vivexotic have created a new and innovative product, utilising a raised glass plate that heat mats can be stuck to the inside of. This leaves air to circulate underneath and thus removes any risk of overheating.
We'd recommend using this product with one of the adhesive backed heat mats (for ease of mounting) connected to a thermostat. This combination offers excellent opportunity for heating the vivarium, especially for snakes and terrestrial geckos that are mostly active at night.
