I don't think I'd staple FlexWatt. That's asking for a shock hazard.
I think if it's a temporary housing solution, I'd just use a human heating pad under one end.
:I'm building a 2'x2'x18" melamine cage to house a young burm until she's ready for something larger. I'm not decided on hinged or sliding glass doors yet, but my main problem is heating it.
:My ideas for heat are these:
:1) A strip of 11" flexwatt stapled along the bottom of the cage on one side.
:2) A strip of 11" flexwatt running along the back.
:The bottom of the cage will be 3/4" melamine, while the back will be 1/4" hardboard.
:Which idea do you think would work better?
:What are your preferences on types of doors? I'm debating between sliding glass, a framed door hinged, and the lexan hinged alone as a door.
