If you need to heat a large, flat area or plane, a finned or strip heater could be your solution. Strip heaters are welded from a single piece of stainless steel, while finned strip heaters have heat-dissipating fins mounted to the outer sheath. Both types of strip heaters are excellent choices for surface contact heating—especially when you need even heating over a broad surface. Confirm the voltage output you’d prefer, as well as the length of the heater, before you shop. Additional heating equipment such as propane, baseboard, salamander and water heaters is also available.
