  • Always use with an accurate digital thermometer
  • Suitable for all reptiles



The sun provides our world and its inhabitants with heat through the terrestrial wavelengths of light termed as ‘Infra-Red-A’ and ‘Infra-Red-B’ but not directly with Infra-Red-C which is filtered out by the atmosphere. The terrestrial wavelengths of light are full of energy as the photons of light travel down into our world.

They are then available directly into an animal’s dermis where they will deliver energy naturally, we term this as being ‘bio-available’. Full-spectrum terrestrial daylight interacts with everything that it encounters and in ectothermic species such as reptiles it is within these wavelengths that they obtain the energy that they need to ‘function’.

Terrestrial wavelengths of IR are also reflected and stored within everything that they encounter. This energy can then be reflected directly or radiated back away into the ecosystem as Infra-Red-C, as heated air. As such everything that energy rich full-spectrum light touches should be thought of as a ‘black body’.

Provides essential heat deep into the body in a safe and natural way as a usable ‘flood’. This allows captive animals to use heat just as they would in the wild, without the risk of overheating associated with tight-beam heat lamps.

The projected heat is available to the animal just as it would be in the wild, firstly by direct exposure to the skin.

Secondly, heat is re-radiated as the stones and decoration used under the basking zone release the heat back upwards, providing belly heat and increasing the ambient temperature.

Infrared-A and Infrared-B provide heat deep within the muscle tissues, warming the animal throughout just as it would in the wild. You can feel this as the warm ‘tingly’ feeling that you experience when you walk out into natural sunlight if you put your hand safely in front of the lamp.


Uses far less power than many standard heating systems. The 50W Deep Heat Projector can outperform a 100W Ceramic Heat Lamp or Tungsten Heating Lamp in heat generation and projection.


This revolutionary lamp has a thick internal reflector, meaning far less of the heat is wasted. Heating up quickly, reaching and maintaining the target temperature.


As with all lamps, should be used with a thermostat. A dimming thermostat will provide accurate control of your thermogradient. You should check the temperature with a suitable quality non-contact laser thermometer. If used correctly this high quality, handmade heating lamp should provide you with years of stable heat provision.


Produces virtually no visible light and should be used throughout the day and night. Therefore, it will not upset the important day/night cycles (circadian rhythms).

  1. Nicole – Evolution Reptiles

    I work in Evolution reptiles and have personally used the Arcadia deep heat projectors for around 4 years and I honestly can’t fault it. They are long lasting and gives my leopard gecko a more penetrative wave length of heat that she actively basks under.
