Product Information

These high output T5 complete kits are ideal for installing within a vivarium, but can also be installed outside over a mesh top enclosure. They come in a choice of three sizes, 24w, 39w and 54w, so you can find the correct size for your enclosure.

Theses units come complete and ready to install, though can be linked together, up to 10 units into one. They are the professional choice for essential UV-B, and come with the reflector and your chosen bulb. Just install, link if needed, and then turn them on.

The ProT5Kit is small but mighty. This is due to the type of reflector that is included. This easy to remove and clean reflector has 2 angles of reflection from the side of each curve. This means that ProT5 projects high levels of UV rich light directly beneath unit at around 12"/30cm to create a basking zone but then also provides a wide flood as light spreads out over distance. This will allow you to create a suitable UV-B provision for any species and over a suitably wide area. The units are flicker free, and have a removable reflector, and include the power cable, switch, fittings kit, link cable and bulb.

This comes with the Arcadia high-output T5 12% Desert bulb. The Arcadia D3+ Reptile Lamp has a higher UV light output that most reptile strip lights - a healthy 12% UV, better simulating the natural light your reptile would have received in desert conditions, where foliage and cloud cover are limited and your reptile would bask in the full heat and UV light of the sun.

This basking in UV means your reptile can synthesise vitamin D3 - an essential part of reptile keeping - allowing them to assimilate the dietary calcium in their food and turn it into strong and healthy bones, avoiding otherwise common deformities and MBD.

Please use the UV Index as a guide for the correct installation in your set up - removing the reflector will reduce the UVI level, and going through mesh will remove about 30-40%.

    Typical Arcadia build quality, very easy to install and a wide range of replacement tubes for the future.

    Took minutes to install in the vivarium and is incredibly bright with no hum or buzzing that occurs with some tubes

    Longer than expected but my fault for not measuring. Really easy to fit and seems to provide good light. Quality feels ok, the reflecting hood could be a bit stronger but not really an issue once it's fitted.
