After seeing allot of controversy over best safe heating for reptiles I thought maybe I could help by sharing my plans for a snake rack I am building in the next few weeks. My snakes are like family so I am custom tailoring this Rack System for my needs so we can still view them and give them room to move around. I will include a detailed list of materials after I finish this project. This rack is being built with the highest grade electrical products on the market and includes CFCI circuitry along with audible and visual alarms for any anomalies in temperature and wattage spikes. After seeing many articles about fire hazards and injuries to reptiles I am taking no chances! Here is the general design that may change due to variances in what works most effectively. I have many years experience with electrical systems and am building everything to current (2011) code for components used, However Some components used have not been tested for this particular application so I have to add this: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES OR DAMAGES IF YOU USE THESE PLANS. I hope this will help give everyone an idea of how you can take safety measures to protect your family,both human and reptile. Most of the products I am using are available from any electrical supply house or Web source but make sure they are all compatible voltage/wattage specifications.
