The Arcadia Reptile ‘Ceramic Heat Lamp’ produces and projects high quality deep ‘Infra-Red’ heat far into an enclosure; when used correctly, these will provide you with many years of targeted heat. Being a natural source of heat, Infra-Red is readily used and can help to further stimulate natural biological function.
These lamps emit no visible light and as such are the perfect choice for many systems where heat is required throughout the day and night without disturbing essential circadian rhythms with unwanted light. They have been produced to the highest of standards and finished in an attractive and unobtrusive black.
These lamps can become very hot, as such it is essential for the safety of your pets and your own alike that these lamps are only used with the correct wattage E27 Ceramic lamp holder, are not placed directly against flammable material or other electrical items and that they are suitably caged at all times.
To ensure accurate heat transfer there should also be a thick natural slate or rock placed underneath the heat lamp at a suitable distance for your own species.
To further protect your animals and to extend the life of the lamp these lamps should be used with a suitable ‘Pulse Proportionate’ Thermostat and checked regularly with a separate thermometer.
Note: To get the most life out of your bulb please be sure to shut off power to the fixture BEFORE removing or installing a bulb.
