Arcadia Reptile placed seven years of research into new heating system

The new Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector’ uses cutting edge technology to produce the natural and effective wavelengths of Infra-Red; ‘Infra-Red-A’ and ‘Infra-Red-B’. These vital wavelengths have been almost impossible to replicate within a lamp up until now.

“I have been working for well over seven years trying to fix the issues with the ‘Heat Projector’ concept,” said John Courteney-Smith, Arcadia Reptile’s head of science and innovation. “I am delighted to say that we have done it!”

Deep Heat Projector

The sun provides us with heat through Infra-Red-A and Infra-Red-B but not Infra-Red-C which is filtered out by the atmosphere.

Infra-red-A and infra-red-B provides heat deep within the muscle tissues, warming the animal throughout just as it would in the wild. 

The Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector’ provides essential heat deep into the body in a safe and natural way as a usable ‘flood’. This will allow captive animals to use heat just as they would in the wild, without the risk of overheating associated with tight beam heat lamps.

The Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector’ uses far less power. In fact, a 50w ‘Deep Heat projector’ can outperform a 100w CHE or tungsten heating lamp.

The ‘Deep Heat Projector’ has an internal reflector, this means far less of the heat is wasted. It also heats up very quickly, reaching target basking temperature in a fraction of the usual time.

The Deep Heat Projector should be used with a dimming thermostat which will provide accurate control of the thermogradient.  

The Deep Heat Projector produces virtually no visible light and can be used throughout the day and night. It will not upset the important day/night cycles (circadian rhythms)

Reptiles associate heat with high levels of light in the day. As such The Arcadia Reptile Deep Heat Projector is ideal for use alongside Arcadia Reptile UVB systems and Arcadia Jungle Dawn LED plant growth systems.

The product will be available from 15th September. For more information go to
