Adloheat home  
  Give your plants the best start possible! Gives excellent germination and a high striking rate for cuttings and seeds.

Correct soil temperature stimulates plant growth, thus maximising yield and quality. Bottom heat cables and foils provide the commercial or home hobbyist with the means to efficiently control root temperature in young plants whilst maintaining a microclimate up to 45cm above the bed. The watt density is designed so that even on very cold nights, the bottom heat will keep the plants at the desired temperature.

Bottom heat units are supplied ready-to-install, complete with a factory fitted 'ADLOHEAT' weather resistant thermostat controller (capillary thermostat pictured below). All of our heating products are manufactured by us in our factory premises using all Australian materials.

The system is simple to install and requires no specialist knowledge, just an electrical outlet.

You choose the size and we will custom make to any size. Feel free to contact us for assistance with your requirements.


Electric Foil Panel


The facts:

  • Specifically designed laminated heating element between heavy aluminium foil and poly backing
  • Specifications: approx 150 watts per square metre (custom made to any output required) 240 Volt
  • Thermostat controller is factory fitted (Digital thermostat available as option)
  • For energy efficiency place insulation foam underneath foil (prices below)
  • Place solashield film over the top and sides of foil like a tablecloth as protection against water ingress to the foil (see prices below)
  • Provides evenly distributed bottom heat as heat spreads easily along foil.
  • We custom make your foil to suit your size and heat requirements.
  • To ensure its longevity, do not allow water to penetrate the foil.


  • Safe to use
  • High speed germination
  • Low operating cost
  • Vigorous root development for cuttings and potted plants
  • Easy to keep clean and germ free
  • Lightweight
  • To use simply roll out, plug in and propagate.
Electric Foil Panel

Recommended Foil Panel set up (see above photos):

  1. Flat bench: Set up your bench (out of the weather, in a draught free, well lit position)
  2. Insulation: Place insulation on top of your bench
  3. Foil Panel: Roll out foil panel onto insulation
  4. Solashield protective covering: Cover foil panel with plastic film to cover all top and all sides
  5. Thermostat controller: Turn the unit into power supply and place probe sensor into the soil mix in a pot or attach it to the foil itself. The probe must be in contact with the foil or soil mix at all times.
Heating Cable Heat Cable

The facts:

  • A propagating cable consists of a thermostatically controlled heating element which is placed in a pre prepared growing box and buried in a layer of moist propagating sand (for best results do not use perlite in the propagating sand due to its insulative properties)
  • Heat then permeates through the sand providing a warm growing environment and microclimate.
  • Ensure sand is always kept damp for maximum even heat distribution.
  • Specifications: approx 150 watts per square metre (custom made to any output required) 240 Volt
  • Thermostat controller is factory fitted to accurately control temperature.
  • We custom make to suit your size and heat requirements.

The Benefits

  • Extremely safe to use
  • High seed germination
  • Low operating cost
  • Vigorous root development for cuttings and potted plants
  • Ability to plant directly into sand mix if required
  • Durable, very long lasting.

  Flexible Heat Pads

Redzone flexible heat pads are manufactured in Australia by Adloheat. The pads are made from polyurethane to give water resistant properties combined with durability and flexibility. Designed for the horticultural, brew, hydroponic and pet industry.

  • 240 Volt - just plugs into your power outlet.
  • Low wattage
  • Superior durability
  • Washable
  • 1 year guarantee
  • Flexible
  • Quality Product
  • Economical
  • Thermostat control available
  • Double insulated
  • UV resistant

Our pads are made in various wattages to suit the purpose to which they are to be used.
Our 10 and 20 watt pads will give a temperature rise of approximately 12°C above the air temperature, for example if the ambient temperature is 10°C the pad surface temperature will rise to 22°C. Our 30 watt and 60 watt pads (brew industry) will give approximately 26°C rise above ambient.

If exact or high temperatures are required, the use of a thermostat controller is essential. Cost for thermostat controller is $144 (THLPWS) or $187 (THDW) in a weather resistant enclosure. Thermostat in a non weather resistant enclosure is $102 (THI)

FOR PLANT USE: Soil temperature is crucial to an optimum growing environment, whether you are germinating lettuce seeds or propagating orchids. These fully portable pads produce spectacular results in higher seed/cutting germination and vigorous root development on cuttings and plants. The pad is of the highest quality and is economical to run.

OTHER PURPOSES: Flexible heat pads are also used for animal care & breeding, beer and wine brewing, pet care, foot warmer, food fermentation and many other applications which require low, continuous heat. As we manufacture our heat pads, we have the ability to custom make a heat pad to suit your needs.
