Grow Lights Certified for Damp and Wet Greenhouse Environments
As indoor farming continues to gain positive attention from the world of agriculture, SpecGrade LED is more than excited to introduce our OpticPAR™ Grow Light Technology to the vertical farming and greenhouse industries. Our next generation LED grow lights feature unbeatable optics, the industry’s highest PPFD levels, and enhanced spectral accuracy for optimal crop yield. With indoor growing comes consideration of environmental factors such as humidity and dampness. Due to SpecGrade’s robust engineering, we are able to create the best LED grow lights for the horticulture industry with Ingress Protection certified for dampness, humidity, high heat, and energy consumption.
LED Grow Lights for Damp Environments
The use of water and liquid chemicals, including dirt and dust factors in the air, brings a challenge to the lifespan of an LED light fixture. It’s important to have a durable lighting fixture designed to stand up against humidity and the damp greenhouse environment in order to produce optimal yield. Because OpticPAR™ Technology offers a lower operating temperatures, indoor growing with our grow lights will not raise temperatures or stress the way other lighting fixtures are prone to do.
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating system scores the ability of electronic equipment to prevent the admission of solids and liquids into the electrical components, which would cause deterioration or malfunction. Products earn an IP code where each digit classifies the degree of protection, the first digit expresses the level of protection against solid objects and the second digit for the liquids. Due to SpecGrade’s robust engineering, our products have an IP rating of either IP42 or IP65 indicating the lighting fixtures are safe in wet conditions. vertical grow fixture holds an IP42 rating, suitable for indoor greenhouses where it is protected against condensation or drops of water. Both the CANNA™ and and LINEA™ grow lights have an IP65 rating, demonstrating that these fixtures can stand against condensation, falling drops, sprays, splashes, and even low pressure water jets.
With electrical connections and circuit boards safely sealed, the use of liquid and solident components like misting and watering systems used in indoor hydroponic greenhouses will not affect the lifespan or functionality of OpticPAR™ LED grow lights.
