Arcadia T5 Reflector Lamp
Arcadia T5 Reflector:
Double your output with a fluorescent Arcadia T5 Reflector! These are great *super polished* mirror-metal reflectors that go on your existing fluorescent light fixture. Arcadia T5 Reflector just clips behind the bulb to add a lot of *punch* to lights with poorly built-in reflectors. Arcadia T5 Reflector is easy to use and a great, low-cost upgrade to get your money's worth in UV and Light that is normally being wasted by poor fixture design. When an Arcadia T5 Reflector is ignited, light is given off evenly in every direction, much of which is directed upwards into the lid of the enclosure. If an Arcadia T5 Reflector is mounted behind the tube, this stray light is not wasted but redirected back to where Arcadia T5 Reflector is required – the enclosure, so that the efficiency of the tube is maximized.
The Arcadia T5 Reflector can be angled to direct the light into the vivarium or terrarium.
Arcadia T5 Reflector Made from a sturdy aluminum design
Available in all lengths from 8W to the 58W
Optimized reflector models for T8 (1”) and T5 (5/8”) lamps
The Benefits of using Arcadia T5 Reflector lamps are cylindrical in design, this means that light is produced all around the tube and down the length of the lamp. By using the correct Arcadia T5 Reflector, you effectively capture all of the light that is produced from the top and the sides of the lamp. This Arcadia T5 Reflector could be as much as two-thirds of its total output. This light will otherwise be effectively wasted to reflection around the enclosure; and not readily available to the animal. By using an Arcadia T5 Reflector you are able to focus the total light output, including the UV component, and generating a much more effective basking zone. The use of the right Arcadia T5 Reflector with the right lamp can actually triple the amount of UV available to the animal. One high output Arcadia T5 Reflector lamp will do the job of four separate Arcadia T8 Reflectors on its own. Reflectors certainly play their part in helping to achieve this huge improvement inefficiency. A D3 or 6% high output Arcadia T5 Reflector lamp with a reflector will provide a massive 150+mws at 38cm (15in), compared with around 45mws from the T8 equivalent! Arcadia Lamp Reflector
