How Pet-Mat™ Pet Heating Pads Work
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads are designed using the latest in advanced Positive Temperature Coefficient and carbon technology. The power required to create heat through carbon fibre technology is very minor and Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads can be powered using a 12 volt DC adaptor. Put simply, the Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads require very little power to provide your pet with heating at economical rates. This further reduces our carbon footprint, making this device an eco-friendly pet heating option. Simply turn on Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads, place them on top of your pet’s bed (never underneath pet beds), or by themselves in a draft-free corner, and your pets simply take to them!
The Pet-Mat™ also does not emit any EMF, self- regulates and is waterproof, which ensures it is one of the safest and easiest heating devices available.
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads have been designed to operate at no more than 40°C (104°F) above the ambient temperature with a theoretical condition of absolutely no heat loss. In real-life, and by the very nature of the design of the Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads, this is simply not achievable – but a more practical heat rise of 20°C (68°F) is usually maintained above ambient conditions.
There is also no need to have a thermostat for Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads as it is simply impossible for Pet-Mat™ to overheat with the new PTC technology. Simply switch on Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads, and leave them on. Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads will maintain a temperature slightly warm-to-the-touch, until contact is made by your pet. After contact is made, the area covered will warm up comfortably due to heat dynamics. Absolutely no fuss or care is needed.
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads can, under normal conditions, be used in general weather conditions of 20°C (68°F) or less. This in turn will provide good warmth of up to a maximum of 40°C (104°F) — an ideal temperature for most pets without running the risk of skin burn, or risk of fires.
Moreover, being powered by a 12 volt DC adaptor means that there is absolutely no danger of electrocution to your beloved pets.
Care of Pet-Mat™ Pet Heating Pads
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads have removable covers to aid in cleaning when soiled or dirty. If the covers of your Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads get dirty, they can be removed and cleaned. Alternatively, you may simply purchase a pack of new covers. New designs will be released in the future.
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads can be cleaned by washing with soapy water, but remember to first unplug pet heating pads from their low voltage transformer. Once cleaned, make sure that your pet heating pads are dry before plugging them back into their transformer.
NOTE: DO NOT IMMERSE OR EXPOSE THE TRANSFORMER TO MOISTURE OR WATER. The transformer supplied with the Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads are meant to operate indoors only, plugged into household mains power. Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads can however be used in a car to provide heat when transporting your pet in a vehicle, using a 12v car adaptor (purchased separately).
Pet-Mat™ Pet Heating Pads for International Markets
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads are available for all international markets via the Pet-Mat™ Shop or by contacting us directly. Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads are supplied with a low voltage internationally certified (CE) transformer that will operate between 100–240 volts.
Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads will be supplied with the correct plug to be used if ordered from the EU. A screw-lock plug (to prevent accidental detachment) is provided to connect the DC/ transformer and ensure power to the pet heating pads. A total of 2.3m of lead from the household main allows for easy positioning and powering of the Pet-Mat™ pet heating pads.
