Deep Heat Projector

Provides essential Infra-Red A and B

Category: Heating

The Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector’ uses cutting edge technology to produce the most natural and effective wavelengths of Infra-Red being ‘Infra-Red-A’ and ‘Infra-Red-B’. These wavelengths have been almost impossible to replicate in-balance within a small lamp up until now.

The sun provides our world and its inhabitants with heat through the terrestrial wavelengths of light termed as ‘Infra-Red-A’ and ‘Infra-Red-B’ but not directly with Infra-Red-C which is filtered out by the atmosphere. The terrestrial wavelengths of light are full of energy as the photons of light travel down into our world. They are then available directly into an animal’s dermis where they will deliver energy naturally, we term this as being ‘bio-available’.

Full-spectrum terrestrial daylight interacts with everything that it encounters and in ectothermic species such as reptiles it is within these wavelengths that they obtain the energy that they need to ‘function’.

Terrestrial wavelengths of IR are also reflected and stored within everything that they encounter. This energy can then be reflected directly or radiated back away into the ecosystem as Infra-Red-C, as heated air. As such everything that energy rich full-spectrum light touches should be thought of as a ‘black body’.

The introduction of the ultra powerful 80W lamp offers even more temperature


RARHP50Z / RARHP80Z versions available in 110V


Uses far less power than many standard heating systems. The 50W Deep Heat Projector can outperform a 100W Ceramic Heat Lamp or Tungsten Heating Lamp in heat generation and projection.


This revolutionary lamp has a thick internal reflector, meaning far less of the heat is wasted. Heating up quickly, reaching and maintaining the target temperature.


As with all lamps, should be used with a thermostat. A dimming thermostat will provide accurate control of your thermogradient. You should check the temperature with a suitable quality non-contact laser thermometer. If used correctly this high quality, handmade heating lamp should provide you with years of stable heat provision.

No visible light

Produces virtually no visible light and should be used throughout the day and night. Therefore, it will not upset the important day/night cycles (circadian rhythms).

Reptiles associate heat with high levels of visible light in the day, so The Arcadia Reptile DHP is ideal for use as part of an ‘array’.

The lamp has a standard E27 fitting so works with our LampHolder Pro or Ceramic Clamp Lamp, also use with the Heat Lamp Cage to protect your reptile from burns.
