Keeping the Giant Tortoise Warm at Melbourne Zoo

While HEATSTRIP® outdoor heaters are great for your alfresco area, there are so many other uses, including unusual applications like keeping the tortoises warm at the Melbourne Zoo.

Melbourne Zoo wanted an efficient, durable, and IP rated heating solution that would keep the Aldabra Giant Tortoises warm when feeding and resting. Many traditional heaters on the market aren’t suitable for this sector due to making the enclosures too stuffy by constantly pumping out hot air into the environment.

HEATSTRIP® Classic 3200A electric radiant outdoor heaters met the criteria and had proved to be a fantastic choice for this type of environment. The two THH3200A where suspended from the ceiling using chains to keep them warm all year-round, providing adequate heat coverage and yet remain energy efficient.

These large animals are one of the highlights of a visit to Melbourne Zoo and a great opportunity to learn more about the plight of Aldabra Giant Tortoises in the wild and be inspired to take action to contribute to the protection and preservation of this species.

Outdoor Oasis: Enjoying the outdoor lifestyle in a small space

A recent design by Steve Taylor of COS Design, shows how best to utilise a small space, in an inner city courtyard in South Melbourne.

Steve explains that “the owners asked us to turn a cold, never used courtyard into an inviting, liveable and functional space with a plunge pool for the summer months, flexible shade and an alfresco kitchen”.  The outdoor retreat Steve designed is contemporary, yet also warm and welcoming with the liberal use of timber decking and panelling to add privacy.

The “big ticket” items were a retractable shade system equipped with Heatstrip® Classic heaters; a plunge pool and full equipped outdoor kitchen – everything you need for outdoor entertaining.

Steve Taylor is an award winning landscape designer and C.O.S Design is one of Australia’s most highly regarded companies. Recently, Steve has also been hosting “Best Gardens Australia” on the 7 network, which showcases Australia’s best garden designers and their work.
