Arcadia T8 Reflector Lamp
Arcadia T8 Reflector
Double your output with a fluorescent Arcadia T8 Reflector! These are great *super polished* mirror-metal reflectors that go on your existing fluorescent light fixture. Arcadia T8 Reflector just clips behind the bulb to add a lot of *punch* to lights with poor built-in reflectors. Arcadia T8 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 T8 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 T8 Reflectoris mounted behind the tube, this stray light is not wasted but redirected back to where it is required – the enclosure, so that the efficiency of the tube is maximized.
The Arcadia T8 Reflector can be angled to direct the light into the vivarium or terrarium.
Made from a sturdy aluminum design
Arcadia T8 Reflector 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 T8 Reflector Fluorescent 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 T8 Reflector, you effectively capture all of the light that is produced from the top and the sides of the lamp. This could be as much as two-thirds of its total output. This Arcadia T8 Reflector will otherwise be effectively wasted to reflection around the enclosure; and not readily available to the animal. By using an Arcadia T8 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 T8 Reflector with the right lamp can actually triple the amount of UV available to the animal. One high output Arcadia T5 Reflector will do the job of four separate Arcadia T8 lamps on its own. Reflectors certainly play their part in helping to achieve this huge improvement inefficiency. A D3 or 6% high output T5 lamp with a reflector will provide a massive 150+mws at 38cm (15in), compared with around 45mws from the T8 equivalent! Arcadia Lamp Reflector
