We have based the UVI measurements on independent measurements of our UVB fluorescent lamps using a SolarMeter 6.5. This handheld meter measures the wavelength of light that are used by animals for vitamin D3 production.
Arcadia reptile are world leaders in Reptile lighting science. We are dedicated to ever improving levels of animal welfare through the provision of accurate, proven, high quality lighting systems and natural nutrition.
Our long developed range of High Output T5 ‘full-spectrum+UVB’ lamps really are the jewel in our crown. Used by the worlds finest zoos and professional keepers to ensure wild-like levels of vitamin D3 production, Arcadia Reptile really is the brand to trust.
Made in Germany to the very highest standards and using cutting edge lighting science our lamps produce and project the very finest quality of energy rich light. Our dedication to welfare and quality brings peace of mind, not only are our lamps powerful and accurate but they also last far longer than many other brands. Our HO-T5 lamps will remain UV-B potent for 12 whole months of use, when used with the correct controller and for a 10-12 hour day. Arcadia Reptile HO-T5 UV-B lamps contain the perfect ratio between UV-B and vital UV-A at 30%. UV-A is essential for the regulation of vitamin D3 production and within activated colour vision.
Arcadia Reptile HO-T5 UV-B lamps produce around twice the volume of light per watt used than ‘standard output’ T8 lamps. This increase in light, which includes UV will allow you to provide a ‘Wild-like’ quantity or ‘index’ of UV energy deeper and more effectively into the enclosure.
We produce a full range of these powerful, long life, flicker free lamps which in turn allows you as a keeper to choose the correct lamp for your species and in any size enclosure.
Arcadia Reptile HO-T5 UV-B lamps produce a high quality of full-spectrum light within the colours attributed to natural sunlight and with a high CRI 90-96. Our attention to detail and emerging science will allow you to view your animals in the most natural way.
