Agritape Precise Heat Mats are season extenders designed for the small commercial grower and the home gardener. The heater consists of the Agritape heating element (11 inches wide by either 4 or 8 feet long) and a built-in adjustable dial thermostat. A GFCI (ground fault sensing) plug shuts off the heater if there is any current leakage. A grounded screen is not necessary. The efficient design of this heater provides a professional quality adjustable heat source at a reasonable price. The Precise Heat Mat is self-contained and can easily be rolled up for storage.
The Precise Heat Mat provides 20 watts per foot in an extremely uniform precise temperature over the entire surface. The control unit has a 3-foot capillary tube with a temperature sensor bulb to insert into the soil. The dial can be set to any desired soil temperature. The GFCI plugs into a standard wall outlet. Seed trays can be placed directly on the tape
