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 6% Forest bulb. T5 tubes are the update from the older T8 fluorescent strip lights, using less energy than older models but giving you're a brighter more intense UV light for your reptile to benefit from. These 6% UV lights simulate the ultraviolet light from the sun, filtered by the rainforest canopy, giving your reptile a dose more accurately resembling what they would receive in the wild.

These Arcadia D3 Reptile lamps help your reptile generate vitamin D3 when they bask under it, allowing them to absorb the calcium in their diet and use it to build strong skeletons. This is an extremely important part of reptile keeping, and without D3 UV and calcium, your reptile can develop problems like Metabolic Bone Disease.

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

    A great bit of kit, the whole unit is basically plug and play, the pink tongue skinks are a lot more active and the vivarium is lovely and night, I was lucky enough that arcadia recommended which unit to purchase, I will be getting more
