Heating Cables are ideal for growers using media beds filled with sand or fine gravel for seedling propagation.
The Heating Cable comes with a water resistant thermostat and the cable is then submersed into the bed of fine gravel or coarse river sand.
The grower plants their cuttings directly into this media or they place trays of seedlings on top of the media bed.
The cable heats up to the required temperature and this heat is radiated into the surrounding media and anything that may be growing in the media or on top of it.
The cables are manufactured to very high standards and have a layer of aluminium armour under the PVC insulation which protects the cable and allows for easier installation.
The cable is laid out in a wave formation along the width of the table with a 50 – 70mm gap between each wavelength (to protect the cable from damage).
One 230 Volt thermostat can control more than 1 cable at one time.
The cables are unable to be trimmed shorter if there is a surplus length.
A Residual Current Device should be installed on the mains power supply for the safest operation of the cables.
