Default What size RUB for Ball Pythons

I have been considering getting a 80L RUB for an Adult Ball Python but I was wondering if these were big enough.I also heard that heat mats will burn the plastic so what should I use to heat it

We have our adult male in a 70L RUB.
We also have two adult females in 33's and 50's, but they will potentially be moved up to something bigger soon.
Proper RUBS, have a temperature range of -15c to +80c so a heat mat/cable should pose no problems to the plastic. (Really Useful Products Ltd - Box Details)

Mats are fine with rubs, make sure you use a thermostat.
