The AvianSun™ has been completely redesigned. Now with a NEW adjustable gooseneck, the AvianSun™ Deluxe Floor Lamp from Zoo Med allows bird keepers to provide their birds with true full spectrum light, including UVB and UVA, just like they get in their natural environment! This floor lamp is designed for use with Zoo Med's AvianSun™ 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamp (Item # AS-C5). This unique lighting arrangement will provide 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!
Zoo Med Avian Sun Deluxe Floor Lamp has a weighted base for stability and is fully adjustable! The Zoo Med Floor Lamp does not come with a bulb. Bulb is sold separately!
- Six points of adjustment allow for use in almost any position!
- Built in reflector increases light and UV output!
- Great way to provide UVA and UVB for Chameleons and birds.
- For use with Zoo Med's Compact Fluorescent bulbs (sold seperately)

Note on Lamp Burn-In: Compact fluorescent lamps have a "burn-in" period when the light and UVB output is at its greatest. For your AvianSun 5.0 Compact Fluorescent Lamp, this period lasts about two weeks when the lamp is used to provide a normal photo period or day/night cycle at 10 to 12 hours per day (150 hours of use). Refer to the following chart for recommended distances during and after the burn period. Zoo Med's AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp is fully adjustable enabling you to easily adjust the distance of the lamp to your bird's cage.
DURING/AFTER BURN-IN RECOMMENDED OPERATING DISTANCE*
During burn-in 18-20" (46-51 cm)
After burn-in 12-14" (30-36 cm)
*Notes on Operating Range:
*The Recommended Distance refers to the distance from the lamp to your bird's perch. The lamp should be placed directly overhead of your bird. DO NOT place the lamp on the side of the cage causing your bird to stare into the lamp. WARNING: DO NOT place the lamp closer to your bird than the recommended distances listed above as eye damage may occur.
When to Replace Your Lamp:
Your lamp will provide beneficial UVA and UVB for a period of 12 months. After 12 months, the lamp should be replaced with a new AvianSun 5.0 Compact Fluorescent Lamp. Before you turn on your lamp for the first time, date the base of the lamp to remind yourself when to replace it
