WEST WARWICK, R.I., Nov. 14, 2017 /Weed Wire/ — Cannabis and agriculture innovator VividGro®, a division of distinguished LED company Lighting Science®, announced today their latest breakthrough: A four-foot, 19 ounces, white light LED grow lamp called the GroBarTM. One 4 foot GroBar linear luminaire can replace two HO 54 W T5 bulbs, providing a better spectrum for your plants while using less materials than competing products. The GroBar is a true breakthrough for all home growers and horticulturists, especially those who experience high energy costs as their operations expand in the booming cannabis industry.
“This is the type of LED solution that cannabis growers have been waiting for. The GroBar is a no-brainer for anyone looking to switch from traditional fluorescents or 60 pound grow lamp troffers,” said David Friedman, President of VividGro. “The GroBar costs 50% less per input watt than other LED grow linears while providing 4500 lumens of visible light per 30 W GroBar as well as generating 2.1 μmol/J for maximizing the growth and strength of plants. That’s pretty incredible performance for a lamp weighing in at a mere 19 ounces.” A three-light kit has higher photosynthetically active radiation (“PAR”) levels and uses 60% less power usage than T5 fixtures that use six 54 W HO bulbs.
In fact, thanks to innovative engineering, the GroBar is also a model of sustainable lighting design. The innovative luminaire uses about 95% less material than a standard 2×4 troffer, which can weigh anywhere from 25 to 60 pounds. In addition, the GroBar’s trim profile requires 80% less packaging, significantly decreasing associated product waste.
Ease of Installation, Wet Rating Makes the GroBar a Mount-Anywhere Problem-Solver
Thanks to robust polymer construction, the GroBar is a snap to install and so lightweight that it can be suspended or mounted directly to the ceiling, making it the perfect solution for difficult-to-light spaces. Unlike traditional LED and legacy fluorescents, the problem-solving GroBar is also splash-rated, so horticulturalists installing the lights in damp environments can rest assured they will not experience outages or disruptions throughout the grow cycle.
The GroBar is currently available for large scale installations to commercial growers, distributors and wholesalers. For small commercial growers and retail/home grow applications, the GroBar is available for pre-order and expected to be in stock early 2018. The revolutionary GroBar will ship with flush mount hardware clips that allow for fast and clean direct mounting. Additional brackets to create a three-light fixture are optional.
