Help with heat tape

I have this rack I purchased and need suggestions of heating for BPs, I have 10qty 12 pieces of heat tape that I had applied to the back but there was a lot of heat loss with the 1/2 gap on the back, I have a 6 piece of tape also thats 5 long but it still leaves me with the gap on the back of the rack. Can I put the 12 pieces flat on the bottom of each rack to heat tubs individually? And yes I do have a thermostat.

Re: Help with heat tape

So the heat tape is on the back of the rack, 1/2" from the tubs? If so, that's not going to work.
I affix the heat tape to the shelves, directly under the tubs.
12" sounds a bit large. What is your tub size? I usually use heat tape that creates a hot spot in 20-30% of the tub, so that they have a cool side, too.
