The fixture is an important aspect of the lighting and heating system, ensuring the safety and proper function of the applied light or heat source. All fixtures comply with both European and North American safety regulations and have been subject to testing by independent laboratories.
Broad Spectrum light, closely simulates natural sunlight Coated with rare earth neodymium Ideal for tree-dwelling (arboreal) species Provides comforting warmth for basking Enhances natural colors or reptiles and amphibians Promotes normal digestion
Halogen bulbs are actually an advanced variation of incandescent bulb technology. One of the major factors that shorten an incandescent bulb's lifespan is the evaporation of the tungsten within the bulb. By adding a trace amount of a halogen gas (methyl bromide) inside the bulb, a chemical reaction removes the tungsten from the wall of the glass and deposits it back onto the filament, extending the life of the bulb. The higher temperatures of halogen lighting contribute to a whiter light, a higher light output and a greater efficiency.
The linear bulbs have a higher output and divide the energy more efficiently over wider terrariums. The longer sizes can even be placed on multiple terrariums.
A broad-spectrum daylight spot lamp with a Neodymium sleeve. The spectrum is ideal for plant's photosynthesis and the UVA (ultraviolet A) light contributes to reptiles' physiological well-being. The spot allows one to direct the heat and light in a certain direction to create basking sites in the terrarium.
The bulb emits infrared heat waves and is a typical heating lamp. The spot lamp has a special build-in reflector to direct the heat in any direction required. The red glass transmits Infrared waves produced by the special filament of the bulb. The reddish light will not disrupt normal activity during night or day, which makes it an excellent 24 hours heat source.
