The BaskZone® 1.5kW shortwave infrared heat emitter is ideal for use in animal and reptile enclosures. Research shows that the wavelengths of infrared produced by BaskZone® heaters are very similar to those of the sun. These wavelengths are readily absorbed into the animal’s body, warming skin and muscle tissue, and encouraging natural basking behaviour.
A single BaskZone® heater mounted at 1.5m will create a superb, effective basking zone warm enough even for tropical species:
Larger basking zones can be created with multiple BaskZone® heaters. Output from BaskZone® heaters can also be overlapped to create very high temperature basking zones.
To regulate heat output for a complete and versatile basking zone solution use BaskZone® heaters in conjunction with our simple to use range of controls.
Supplied in black with a tilt & swivel mounting bracket, front safety grille and 5m cable. Linking plates are included to join BaskZone® heaters together to make large arrays.
