Somewhere on here is what Bob did with his double cages tube wise and we fitted a mesh surround to ensure that cables and bulb were bird safe will try and find it and post you the link as well as one of our members who did a rather brilliant way of protecting the cables using a metal shower hose fitment!
We have plenty of lights, lamps etc, what I am aiming at is a main room light to be a UV/daylight florescent general lighting. I have found the Avian bulbs, 4', but no holders. One would have thought if they make the bulbs they would have holders?
You need a T8 fluorescent strip light @Kendra not a standard fitment. T8 are anti-flicker you can buy them at most DIy stores or you can use one of the fish T8 tube light controller which will give you the ability to plug them in where you want them instead of hard wiring them in. This one of the ones I mean https://www.swelluk.com/arcadia-ultraseal-light-controllers/ obviously don't use the light for fish purchase a strip light for birds
@DizzyBlue Something has just clicked in my brain, so thank you first for switching it on. Since we moved we have had reduced UV lighting for the birdies, waiting patiently for out new room. A couple of the birds have been chomping away at there calcium blocks which I have never seen before, I bet that is why.
Husband fitted them yesterday, A pair but it was all they appeared to have, they are brilliant. No flickering to start, really bright so thank you @DizzyBlue, excellent for the room, hopefully birds in soon..
