UVB & Lighting questions

Hi all, I have a KSB and will be getting an Angolan python soon. Getting custom PVC cages made. For KSB, will be 12" high (his current cage is 12" with fluorescent light). 28" wide and 20" deep. For the Angolan, cage will be 24" high, 28" wide, and 36" deep. Will be using RHP for both and they will be mounted off to one side.

In looking at the Ferguson zones, seems like KSB would be 1, and at that height, the only UVB light that looks possible is the Arcadia Reptile shade dweller:
However, that light is only 12" long. My questions are (1) does my conclusion on the light sound right, (2) do I need additional lighting? and (3) should I run the UVB length-wise near the RHP to more accurately create the effect of sunlight (realize KSB's burrow most of the time, and my guy mostly does, but he likes to come out a bit each day)?

For the Angolan, seems like the Arcadia UVB 6% is the appropriate bulb. And same questions as above. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
