There available through Hog Slat. Google it and there website will tell you the closest dealer to you. They ship anywhere. Also might try the company that makes them, Kane. They might have dealers other than hog slat. Seems like Ive seen them at farm supply stores, but Im not real sure. I think (there I go thinkin again ) there made in Sioux City IA, agian just remembering off the top of my head and not certain.
There orange, about 2ft x 4feet, but the ones I have came from.....well lets just say there used ...there cut in half and about 1foot by 3 or 4ft. The heating element is enclosed in orange plastic......hence the color..orange . There is a cord at one end, and they run on regular 110.
Hog Slat went to a different type about the time I stopped dealing with them. Those are white, about the same size as my half ones and heavy as heck. Have a 2in thick concrete filler. They stay warmer and use less electric though. They probably have the old orange type as well.
I could get a picture of one, but it would involve removing it and taking a pic with the web cam. Not real sure where the digital camera is..........................probably ought to find that little dealy...
Anyway, if you cant find a pic anywhere else I would be glad to do it.
Side note, though these things aren't going to start a fire like say a heat lamp, they dont heat things up as well either. There designed to heat to about 20degrees warmer than the air around them. If you stick them outside and its 10 degrees....well you get the idea. They do make a rheostat that makes them heat to what ever temp you want though. Mat plugs into that, that plugs into outlet. Gets kind of expensive though.
That is unless you get the stuff.............used ....like I did.
