Horticultural Lighting

Tue, 07/20/2021 - 15:00 -- Scott

Carclo boasts an extensive variety of optics to compliment the swiftly expanding number of horticultural LEDs offered by leading manufacturers such as Osram, Cree & Luxeon. 

Horticultural lighting can be subdivided into the following 3 sectors:

Greenhouse Lighting

Providing optimal growing conditions on an industrial scale is best achieved using a combination of elements. It is widely accepted that the most important of these is lighting. In partnership with the correct nutrition and adequate ventilation, the yield is maximised along with ROI. Initial outlay is quickly returned and the use of LEDs with our secondary optics ensures both minimal light spillage and adherence to environmental guidelines.

Vertical Farming

The term ‘vertical farming’ refers to the practice of growing crops in vertically stacked layers. It often incorporates controlled environment agriculture, which aims to optimize plant growth, and soilless farming techniques such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics. Our optics focus the light resulting in minimal spillage and ensure optimal yield. 

Intra Canopy

This involves suspending or mounting light sources amidst the vegetation and can promote growth, yielding fantastic results - especially when selecting LEDs that cater for specific light frequencies.

Due to the variance in density and growing arrangements, it is best to consult directly with our team to discuss tailoring the best solutions for your individual projects.
