Cosy Tortoises Heat and Light Packages


Electrical Installation Package

Includes two sockets, 2-way digital programmer, weatherproof box fitted and is tested by an electrician.

Digital Controller will enable you to switch on and off your light and heat by a programmer everyday. The electrics will be installed into the All-Season Houses and to save you the hassle of drilling holes and installing extra parts and fittings. The electrical installation and UV unit will be tested by a qualified electrician. Note that you will still need an electrician to provide a power supply to the Tortoise House. The plug supplied will be a normal house plug (different from photo above). The plug fitted is not suitable for outdoors use. The plug and outdoor cable will need to be protected from the weather etc. A circuit breaker should be used to protect whichever electric supply the Tortoise house is connected to (standard for all outdoor electrics). You must seek advice from a qualified electrician to safely connect an electric supply to your new Tortoise House. The heat and light package is not included in the price of electrical installation.

Outdoor Run Add-Ons to the All-Season Houses

Small Tortoise Run1.5 m1.0 m0.5 m£319.99
Medium Tortoise Run2.0 m1.0 m0.5 m£419.99
Large Tortoise Run3.0 m1.0 m0.5 m£549.99
Extra Large Tortoise Run3.0 m2.0 m0.5 m£719.99

The Outdoor Runs can be fitted to the All-Season Houses. The side sections at one end are fitted onto the house and the nearest top section is made about 5cm shorter so that it fits in front of the house. To access the tortoise house simply remove the nearest top section of the run.

The Small Add-on Outdoor Run shown in the pictures above are shown beside the Small All-Season House it was ordered with.  They had Wood Sage Paint Upgrade as described in the section on this page below.

The Outdoor Runs are secure and accessible with premium wood frame meshed side and removable meshed tops. They are constructed with solid tongue and groove wood cladding around the base to reduce your tortoise's natural instinct to try to escape. Rabbit Runs are not suitable because if your tortoise can see through mesh it will try to get through it and may hurt themselves or get stressed as a consequence. They are heavier in weight than rabbit runs and consequently are more difficult to burrow under or be lifted by your tortoise. The planed smooth wood used and plastic coated mesh is of high quality. The quality of the materials increases the security of the enclosure. The tops of the enclosures are removable and can be secured with hasp and staples. Hasp and Staples and Padlocks are also available on this page. Stain colour may vary compared to the colour shown in the photos. Different Colour Upgrade options are available towards the bottom of this page and incur additional cost. Free delivery for the Add-on Tortoise Run when ordered with an All-Season House.

Hasp and Staples

Free postage with this item when buying an All-Season House.

Cosy Tortoises cannot guarantee that the paint colour chosen will look the same as displayed on the website, due to variation in product colour by the manufacturer and natural variations of the wood. Cosy Tortoises applies at least one coat of preservative wood paint and recommends further coats are applied after delivery according to the paint manufacturer's instructions. At least one further coat of paint is recommended so that any movement of external surfaces in transit are sealed thoroughly to ensure the house is weatherproof.
