High quality, affordable UV lighting.

  • Lamp unit, reflector and bulb in one bundle
  • Flicker free bulb in Ferguson Zone 2
  • Provides UVA and UVB lighting

Reptile Systems lamps have been designed to replicate the profile of sunlight as closely as possible, to produce a full spectrum lamp with balanced amounts of UVA and UVB, whilst producing excellent natural colours. We recognised the need for good quality UV lighting, for reptiles to convert this to D3, through a series of chemical events. This process is self-regulating and is essential for reptiles to absorb calcium from their diet, eliminating the risk of metabolic bone disease.
