The unique distribution of the heating ink on the surface of the Heat Mat allows for a gradual decrease of temperature towards the edge. This greatly reduces the risk of glass bottomed vivariums cracking. The uniformity of temperature is guaranteed because of the wide heating bands.
These heat mats have an additional safety feature in the form of a resistor that restricts the flow of electricity the hotter the mat gets ensuring in the event of a thermostat failure that the heat mat will not get more than 20⁰c above the ambient room temperature. The Reptile Systems Heat Mats are supplied with rubberised spacers, it is important to remember when installing any heat mat they should be placed on the outside of the enclosure and allow adequate ventilation to allow excess heat to escape.
