Zoo Med AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp Information




If you live in a part of the country where you do not get much sunlight or the sun's rays are not as intense as in Southern parts of the country, you have been probably tempted to use regular fluorescent lights for your bird's lighting. This might be a bad idea because normal indoor lighting does not have the full spectrum of light rays needed for optimal bird health.

Birds require two types of light, ultraviolet A rays and ultraviolet B rays. UVA rays are needed by your pets to see where they are, where their food is and to generally illuminate their location. If you are in a part of U.S. where it gets dark quickly, your birds would appreciate this type of light. However, they also require ultraviolet B lights because they stimulate vitamin D3 production. Vitamin D3 is needed for bone formation and general bone health. Taken together, birds require specially-designed lamps to meet their health needs.

Thankfully Zoo Med Aviansun Deluxe Floor Lamp from Pet Store is a full-spectrum lamp that takes care of your bird's lighting needs. This floor lamp is specifically built to be used with small fluorescent lamps that range up to 26 watts. Make sure to get the correct lamp for this floor lamp. With the Zoo Med Aviansun Deluxe Floor Lamp, you would be sure that your birds will get the proper illumination regardless what season it is and where you are in the country.

Product Highlight(s):
  • Bring the Sun indoors!
  • Weighted base for stability
  • Six points of adjustment
  • Built-in reflector
Zoo Med AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp The AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp from Zoo Med allows you to provide your birds with true full spectrum light, including UVB and UVA, just like they get in nature! Horizontal lamp arrangement increases light output compared to standard dome fixtures when using compact fluorescent lamps. This floor lamp is designed for use with compact fluorescent lamps up to 26 Watts, such as Zoo Med’s AvianSun 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamp. This unique lighting arrangement provides birds with safe levels of beneficial UVB and UVA for physical and psychological health. UVB enables birds to synthesize Vitamin D3 for proper calcium metabolism, which is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. UVA is visible to birds, enabling them to recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are essentially colorblind! The floor lamp is fully adjustable and includes weighted base for stability, on/off switch for greater convenience, and a built-in reflector for maximum light and UV output. Bulb not included.

Comments: I have a 6 month old parrot-let and I found out that he needs sunlight to have healthy bones, feathers etc.... So I did some searching and found this lamp and I love it! This was very easy to put together, is very good quality! I am so happy I don't have to worry about my bird not getting enough nutrients from the sun now. (And no I can't put him in a sunny room because we have tree's everywhere.) I do wish they would put the bulb for this on the same page so you know they have it here because it is sooo much cheaper than any other petstore-online or in person!

Comments: After waiting 7 days for this lamp I finally got it, assembled it and it did not work. Thinking maybe I had a bad bulb, I installed a different bulb, still no light. Just on the off chance I had two bad bulbs, I inserted the Avian Sun 5.0 UVB bulb in a different lamp and it works fine. I checked for voltage at the socket and voltage was present. Bottom line,,,I can't recommend something that did not work out of the box.

Comments: The lamp feels a little light and cheesy. But it's easy to build and you see the results almost imediately in the birds behavior ! They love it ! It warms them and makes them cheerful and more active while giving them what they would get outside in nature to keep them healthy. Something that many captive birds are deprived of due to the lack of knowledge on not only the owners part the the pet stores.
