It is the only heat tape available with a flame retardant coating, which can be identified by its yellow backing. With 30 years of experience and a complete 5-year warranty, Flexwatt offers state of the art technology with every pet warming system. Made in the USA.
11" is 20-watts per foot. 120 Volt.
This product is designed to be operated at a "herp-related" temperature and is an excellent heating material for herpetoculturists. Flexwatt has been around as long as we have been in business (over 30 years), and longer. It is manufactured for lots of different uses in lots of different widths and wattages. It is great to use on reptile rack systems, incubators, as stand alone heat pads, etc.
Flexwatt is ultra-thin, at .012 inches thick, and is sealed in durable, flexible polyurethane. You manufacture this product yourself and will need a wire and plug. The strips of heat tape are connected with two clips and two clip covers which are wired to a standard electrical wire. The clip sets and cord sets are sold separately. You can also solder if you are comfortable with this.
It is recommended that a rheostat, dimmer (use a dimmer intended for incandescent lights) or a proportional thermostat be used with this product. This will help your heat tape last longer and is safer for your animals. NOTE: Maximum recommended length of 11" heat tape is 24-feet per thermostat. Do not overlap heat tape. Easy to trim.
WARNING: Because this is a product that you manufacture yourself, there is no implied warranty and you incur all liability for it. Keep tape under 95 degrees! Use common sense when using this or any other electrical heat element. This product is intended for indoor use.
