Although LEDs typically last around 50,000 hours, cheaply manufactured grow lights can have poor cooling or over-powered LEDs, so that the light intensity drops significantly with normal use in just a few months. This can have serious ramifications, not just for OPEX costs but also for crop yields.
As indoor farming requires significant investment, it is wise to choose LED grow lights that are high quality, cost-effective and energy-efficient for your business. LED grow lights also need changing every five years, not every five minutes, which is why their tried and tested approach in real environments is proven to last.
For these reasons, Light Science Technologies have launched nurturGROW, their new product range which is high performing and cost-effective. They have put together 5 reasons, as specialists in UK manufacturing, why growers should invest in high-quality products:
1.Proud to be a UK manufacturing specialist
High-quality UK products start with a high-quality UK manufacturing process you can trust, backed by expertise, rigorous testing and access to the most cutting-edge technology. This gives us the agility, flexibility, and scale to build cost-effective solutions for your indoor environment.
"Through quality-driven UK manufacturing, we have created unrivalled scale and customization to offer 1000s of light recipes and variable lengths of LED grow lights of up to 2.78 metres, the longest luminaire on the market, available as part of our nurturGROW range," they say.
2. Sustainable grow LED lighting design
"One of our market differentials is that our lighting product is 90% recyclable or reusable, featuring just four core components which can be recycled. This equates to a future cost saving of 30%," they say.
This ethos also extends to our work with others who are equally dedicated to giving back to the planet. As a proud reforestation partner with One Tree Planted, they plant a tree for every product we sell to support projects that help sustainable agriculture. This forms part of a joint commitment to champion global reforestation efforts and raise awareness of the importance of ecosystem restoration.
Land is becoming scarce and the earth’s resources are running low, as the global population is set to reach 9.7 billion in 2050. Vertical farming and other methods of indoor farming such as polytunnels and greenhouses are proving to be a viable, sustainable solution to the growing global food crisis.
