Agritape Heat Mats
Agritape Heat Mats:
Reliable Heat for even germination!
- Provide supplemental bottom
heat for maximum germination.
- Raise soil temperature up to
20° F over ambient air
- Mats can be custom made up to
25' length depending on width.
- Available in widths of 11", 22" and 44".
Agritape Heat Mat Systems are easily installed and removed, so bench space can be used for multiple purposes. The Agritape heats up when it is electrified with standard house
current (110 volts AC) and generates heat (up to 95° F) that is extremely uniform across the entire surface of the tape. The tape is rated 20 watts per linear foot. Agritape Heat Mats distribute heat evenly over the entire mat surface, eliminating the cool spots typical of wire coil mats.
To install a system, roll out the heat mat and plug into the control unit. Cover the heater with the ground screen. Connect the ground wire from the control unit to the screen. Place seed tray or container on ground screen. Plug in the control unit, then place the bulb
thermostat in the soil of the seed tray or container. Set the dial on the thermostat to the
desired soil temperature. Insulation board may be installed under the heater to improve
thermal efficiency but is not necessary. Ambient temperature should be kept at 50° F or higher, as the Agritape will increase soil temperature by a maximum of 20° F.
