Arcadia Reflector 36″/ 54 W
When a fluorescent tube is ignited, light is given off evenly in every direction, much of which is directed upwards into the lid of the aquarium. If a reflector is mounted behind the tube, this stray light is not wasted, but redirected back to where it is required – the aquarium, so that the efficiency of the tube is maximised. •Reflector can be angled to direct the light into the aquarium or terrarium •Made from a sturdy aluminium design •Available in all lengths from 8W to the 58W •Optimised reflector models for T8 (1”) and T5 (5/8”) lamps ——————————————————————————– The Benefits of using reflectors Fluorescent lamps are cylindrical in design, this means that light is produced all around the tube and down the length of the lamp. By using the correct reflector, you effectively capture all of the light that is produced from the top and the sides of the lamp. This could be as much as two-thirds of its total output. This light will otherwise be effectively wasted to reflection around the aquarium. Suitable for use with 36″(900mm) / 54 Watt T8 bulbs.
