The uniquely designed bolt through cage lamp holder ensures safety and stability through an anti-tamper two-part wire clamp. The lamp holder itself is fitted with a switch for ease of use but you can also use good quality timers to set a photoperiod. The clip-on safety grill has been designed to allow as much light through into the cage whilst also protecting the lamp.
PureSun-Compact Kit can be used over most small to medium sized wire cages and for smaller species of bird. These include Budgerigars and other small parakeets, smaller Parrots such as Senegal’s and Meyers, Canaries, finches, small doves and more.
Compact lamps of the correct design can produce a large amount of essential light, they are easy to use and flicker free, needing no external ballast nor control. However, they have always had large limitations in pet care, the greatest being a lack of suitable reflectors. The lack of an effective reflector has made compact lighting for birds and other animals almost unusable and in some cases, quite dangerous as it equated to large scale incorrect use in aviculture and herpetoculture, using bare lamps protruding into the living space and a reduction in downward flow of energy.
The amount of light emitted from a lamp decreases with the age of the lamp, particularly in lamps which emit ultraviolet radiation, so it is important to remember to change your lamps at the end of their recommended service life, normally at 1 year.
Minimum distance from lamp to bird is 150mm/6”.
