Netherlands: Florein Gerbera's opts for custom-made grow lights

Gerbera grower Reinier Zuidgeest of Florein Gerbera's has recently installed custom-made grow lights for its gerberas. A new reflector, designed specially for him, yields maximum efficiency for the grow lights, limiting the costs per ┬Ámol to a minimum.

Even during the installation the new fixtures catch the eye: "They look robust." The fixtures are manufactured from high-quality materials: ceramic fittings, electrical components from Philips, reflector material from Germany, and the fixtures themselves have been made from strong cast aluminium. Now that the new grow lights are working, Reinier Zuidgeest is very enthusiastic: "You can see on the wall screen that distribution is optimum."

Florein Gebera's opted for these new fixtures because the reflector has been customised entirely for its glasshouse and crop. When designing it, Lionz Light took into account the lighting requirements for gerberas and the customer's wishes, as well as the glasshouse's dimensions and layout. The reflector also yields the highest possible efficiency, which according to independent measurements is the highest light yield in the market. Maximum output and optimum distribution mean that these fixtures give a big saving in costs in ┬Ámol/m2.

Lionz Light brings light! It is the crop and the glasshouse's structure rather than the fixture that determine how the space is lit. Lionz Light helps the customer decide how the grow light can be used to provide light to the plant as efficiently as possible. Top lighting via a traditional, high-quality fixture with a custom-made reflector is an example of this. In consultation with the customer, however, Lionz Light can also approach projects in a totally different way, whereby the required light and cost saving rather than the fixture provide the starting point.

Horticultural businesses that would like to think more about grow light innovation in the sector find in Lionz Light a good discussion partner for comparing ideas about non-conventional solutions, especially as it is not the fixture but the light that provides the starting point.
