Reflectors focus light onto the lumens of plants, offering them the exact amount of light they need during different cycles (from germination to flowering), as well as limiting the loss of unused light rays.
Optimise your grow room capabilities' by choosing from Hytec's extensive range of reflectors, from the best brands on the market, purposefully adapted to the cycles of growth and blooming.
Depending on your needs, there are several types of reflectors: open, closed, cooling tubes and those for CFLs (energy saving bulbs) HPS or MH bulbs. The shape of the reflector determines the distribution of the light as well as the heat released.
The distance between lamps and plants is significant and should not be rough estimate because every centimetre counts. Several factors are involved in the evaluation of this range: surface and shape of the reflector, size of the culture chamber, aeration, intensity of the bulb.
Closed reflectors concentrate the luminous flux better. The materials used are glossy or hammered aluminium. Hammered aluminium reflectors disperse the light flux in dozens of directions, avoiding heating points.
The shape of the reflector and its coating determine the distribution of light, as well as the presence of unwanted hot spots. Glazed reflectors, Light rails and Spreaders serve to avoid these harmful heating points for the leaves.
Neon's and T5s are already equipped with internal reflectors. As for LEDs, there is no need for reflectors; however, you can intensify the light with Mylar coating. All reflectors are equipped with E40 sockets, for all MH, HPS, hybrid and CFL lamps from 125 to 300W.
Light is essential to the success of your hydroponics. To enhance the intensity of horticultural light, utilising reflectors, such as the maxibright horizon, is a perfect solution. Some bulbs, including HPS and MH bulbs, will need a digital or magnetic ballast - check out the maxibright daylight. Perhaps you prefer to go to the basics, in this case, Hytec Hydroponics offers pre-designed lighting kits for all surfaces.
