The Arcadia Bird ProT5 Bird lighting kit uses our ‘worlds first’ HO-T5 Bird lamp in 54 Watts.
Birds use UV-A to ‘activate’ colour vision and UV-B to create essential vitamin D3 within their own body’s in the most natural and safest way. Vitamin D3 is essential to life but it also allows the correct assimilation, storage and use of the earths minerals. Being able to store and use Calcium ensures strong bones, good feather health, improves vital organ function, improves captive breeding and reduces the chance of feather plucking.
The Arcadia Bird ‘ProT5’ lighting kit for birds uses the very latest in German lamp technology to create a wide beam of UV rich illumination with the highest CRI to date. ProT5 is Flicker Free and versatile. ProT5 for birds can also be linked with the cable included in the box, making searching for power sources a thing of the past.
The lamps are 46”/1150mm long and are perfect for mounting over large parrot cages such as those used for large Macaws, large conures and Cockatoos. This easy to use and energy efficient kit will allow you to provide the correct level of UV whilst still providing easy to access shade.
ProT5 for birds can also be fitted into or over larger indoor flight cages such as those used by Budgerigar breeders, tropical bird keepers and those keeping mixed flights of finches.

Using the very latest tech to ensure birds live long healthy lives
Birds are more than able to self-regulate their own exposure to energy rich illumination, they have developed to do so in the wild over an expanse of time.
As keepers, we want our birds to live a long and productive life, bird lighting which includes UV-B can help to ensure this.
UV rays do not travel very far from source. As light (energy) travels is spreads out to cover a wider area. As such, the total power is shared over this area and the available quantity of measurable energy decreases.
Most species of pet bird will need to be sitting on the basking perch at a distance of 8-12”/20-30cm between the lamp and their heads. If they are further than this distance, then the quantity of energy within UV available to them will have decreased. If they are closer than this, then they are closer to source and the energy is higher.View our Bird Care...
