Birds use the energy within the ultraviolet spectrum in amazing ways. The correct provision of UV-A allows for the activation of full-colour vision in birds. This means less stress, better feeding and easy, natural mate selection. Without access to UV-A birds simply cannot perceive the amazing array of natural colours that their development allows for. Being able to see in this incredible rainbow of colours helps birds find mates, essential for breeders of pet birds.
Birds also use UV-B to create within their bodies naturally essential vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is essential within the body but it is also the ‘catalyst’ to mineral assimilation, storage and use. Without enough D3 calcium simply passes through the body as unused. The good news is, that birds can easily manufacture and self-regulate D3 in their own bodies after correct exposure to UV-B, especially when the light is balanced within the whole terrestrial UV spectrum.
Arcadia Bird PureSun-Compact allows birds to see in colour, allows for the natural production of vitamin D3, increases feather condition, helps to reduce feather plucking and aids in mate selection and reproduction. PureSun-Compact will also allow you as the keeper to view your pet bird in the most natural light, usually seeing colours that are not visible under standard home lighting.
PureSun-Compact uses the very finest in German Phosphor technology to project a crisp, bright, high CRI light that is well balanced in UV. PureSun-Compact is totally flicker free, has UV-C protection and a host of internal electronic protections built in.
PureSun-Compact can be used for all species of small and medium sized bird kept out of direct unfiltered daylight in quality E27 reflected lamp holders.

Lamp Safety & Usage
Bird lamps remain UV-B potent (within 40% of total output) for one whole year of use. This is based on using the correct controller and a maximum 12 hour a day photo period. Health concerns should always be reported to a suitable vet who can access the bird properly. Do not allow birds long exposure to bird lamps at a distance closer than stipulated by the product. Humans should remain 12” or more away from the lamp. Lamps should be turned off before cage maintenance is carried out. Bird lamps should not be sprayed with water directly. To be sure of UV-B potency, replace bird lamps once yearly.
