Easy to use full spectrum UV lighting kit for your smaller pet birds.
This PureSun Mini Lighting Kit, made by the experts at Arcadia, comes with everything you need to provide full spectrum UV light for your smaller pet birds.
It also allows your bird to make their own Vitamin D3. Having optimum levels of Vitamin D3 helps keep your bird in good health. It is essential for proper calcium metabolism, for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.
Your birds have specialised retinas that enable them to see colours in the UV spectrum, helping them to recognise mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour blind. Unlock their world and let your bird see it in full colour!
UVA is essential for the psychological health of your bird. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours. It also promotes singing in songbirds.
This high-quality flicker free lamp is guaranteed to be UV potent for 12 whole months, based on usage of up to 12 hours per day.
We recommend replacing the bulb after 12 months.
This kit comes with 8 watt linear Arcadia Bird lamp 2.4% UV-B, highly polished UK made acrylic bracket, cable clips to keep the cable away from the bird and fittings kit.
PureSun-Mini Bird Lighting Kits can even be linked up if you have more than one cage. Simply use the Mini Link Cable (optional product code 828161) to power one kit from another without having to find extra wall sockets.

UVB – Researchers have found that most birds benefit from UVB. Exposure to UVB allows birds to synthesis Vitamin D3 in the skin through a special process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.
UVA – “visible light”: Birds have specialised retinas that enable them to see UVA, helping them to recognise mates, locate food and identify different species. Using lighting that emits UVA can help curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours. Without UVA birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are essentially colour-blind. UVA is also necessary for the psychological health of your bird.
