Radiant Heat Panels from Sweeter Heater (SH)
These Radiant Heat Panels run at about the same temps as Vivarium Electronics (VE) RHPs. VE surface temp runs temp runs 170 to 180F. Warm to the touch, but still not likely to start a fire if in contact with cage furniture or bedding and okay to place your hand on. Compare the ceramic heat emitters (CHE) with a surface temp above 300F.
Sweeter Heaters do not require a thermostat, but I am of the opinion all sources of heat should be regulated with one.
My price point is less than the manufacturer’s and Amazon. So, buy from me. I keep my inventory current on this kind of item, so if you can buy it it’s in stock. Otherwise the purchase system will tell you ‘out of stock’.

As with any electric heating device, special precautions must be taken:
1. Insure that the heat surface is open to air and that the heat is allowed to escape & circulate.
2. Allow a minimum of 6 inches of air space between the ground surface, bedding, straw hay or any combustible materials.
3. Take special precautions to insure that the unit cannot be allowed to fall with its heating surface enclosed. Severe overheating may occur which could result in combustion.
HEATER INFORMATION AND START UP
All of the materials we use in the Sweeter Heater are completely safe. The lens material is common fiberglass fire rated sheeting used in homes and the food industry. The shell is ABS styrene material (think refrigerator linings, toys, and other molded products). The insulation is a noncombustible EcoTouch Insulation utility blanket. The ODOR that is noted on a new heater is from the escalated final drying of the lens material (fiberglass and adhesives) as the heat is applied. The odor is normal and will go away in a day or so as the new materials dry out. Very close examination of the lens sometimes reveals small hairline cracks that are created as the lens dries. This is also normal.
