The sun provides our world and it inhabitants with heat through the terrestrial wavelengths of light termed as ‘Infra-Red-A’ and ‘Infra-Red-B’ but not directly with Infra-Red-C which is filtered out by the atmosphere. The terrestrial wavelengths of light are full of energy as the photons of light travel down into our world. They are then available directly into an animal’s dermis where they will deliver energy naturally, we term this as being ‘bio-available’. Full-spectrum terrestrial daylight interacts with everything that it encounters and in ectothermic species such as reptiles it is within these wavelengths that they obtain the energy that they need to ‘function’. Terrestrial wavelengths of IR are also reflected and stored within everything that they encounter. This energy can then be reflected directly or radiated back away into the ecosystem as Infra-Red-C, as heated air. As such everything that energy rich full-spectrum light touches should be thought of as a ‘black body’.

Infrared-A and Infrared-B provide heat deep within the muscle tissues, warming the animal throughout just as it would in the wild. You can feel this as the warm ‘tingly’ feeling that you experience when you walk out into natural sunlight if you put your hand safely in front of the lamp.

The Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector®’ or ‘DHP’ 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 projected heat is then available to the animal just as it would be in the wild, via direct exposure to the skin and via radiated heat as the stones and decoration used under the basking zone radiate the heat back upwards, providing wild-like belly and flank warmth and increasing the ambient temperature.

The ‘Deep Heat Projector®’ actually uses far less power than many standard heating systems. In-Fact a 50w ‘Deep Heat projector’ can outperform a 100w CHE or tungsten heating lamp in heat generation and projection.

This revolutionary lamp has a very thick internal reflector, this means far less of the heat produced is wasted. The Arcadia Reptile Deep Heat Projector® also heats up very quickly, reaching and maintaining the target temperature well.

As with all lamps, the ‘DHP’ should be used with a suitable thermostat which will provide you with accurate control of your thermogradient and checked with a suitable quality non-contact laser thermometer. If used correctly this high quality, handmade heating lamp should provide you with a long period of stable heat provision.
The DHP produces virtually no visible light and should be used throughout the day and night. Therefore, it will not upset the important day/night cycles (circadian rhythms).

My lizard loves this
Thank you for carrying this product! They're hard to find! I bought one of these a year ago and it still is working great. I use it with the Exo Terra Night/Day thermostat. This heater and a bioactive setup from the Biodude completely turned around my six year old gecko's health problems including horrible sheds that would stick to his fingers and even his eyes, poor Lucy! It cured cured my gecko's anorexia. He's always hungry now, even if I just fed him three massive superworms.
My gecko, Luciano, actually basks under this heater after eating. Sometimes he just chills there until he sees me and starts begging for food. He has this Mayan pyramid that looks like Chichen Itza. The DHP has a deep enough projection to penetrate under the pyramid during the day, keeping it in the mid-upper 80s F inside. I drop it 10 degrees at night, which gives a perfect 96 degree hotspot that Lucy practically melts into. I try not to anthropomorphize my pets but it really seems like he's happy chilling under there before he goes exploring at night. He changed so much. He's alert and active now. He moves around every night, which he never did before unless he absolutely had to.
I definitely recommend this for any leopard gecko. It might take a couple days to get the temp correct because the placement of the projector dramatically changes where the heat goes. Too high and your hotspot won't even touch the lizard but too low and the heat will completely pass through the other side. Eventually you (and your pet) will figure out the shape of the heat wave. It's really cool.
