New arcadia prot5ho 6% height to basking branch

Hi yall I just got a arcadia prot5ho 6% for my veiled and was wondering what the proper distance is to his basking branch with the light shining through the screen top? The box says 15 inches for a uvi of 3.4 . I don't yet have a solar meters I have no way of accurately checking it at this time.

This simple answer to your question... A single bulb t5HO fixture and a 6% bulb laying directly on top of the cage with aluminum window screen as the top of the cage needs a measured basking distance of 9 inches down from the screen for the basking branch for an approximate 3 UVI level. The box is not accounting for the screen reducing 40% of the output of the fixture.
