New reflector directs light only where you need it:

P.L. Light designs smart reflector specially for outer walls and pathways

P.L. Light Systems is please to introduce a unique new reflector to their North American customers—offering true asymmetric distribution and dramatic reductions in wasted light.

With ever-increasing energy costs, improving operational efficiencies is a common priority for all types of growers. Many growers realize the importance of integrating regular reflector cleaning and re-lamping into their maintenance schedule to ensure the optimal efficiency of their lighting system. Despite these measures, however, a significant amount of light is still lost when it is projected onto the outer walls or pathways within the growing facility.

Typically, growers have either had to absorb the cost of the wasted light in these areas, or reduce the number of light fixtures in those zones to limit the amount of light wasted, but in so doing, sacrifice lighting quality and yield in those areas.

With the introduction of PL Light Systems’ new Asymmetric Reflector, however, growers no longer have to choose between efficiency and lighting quality. The Asymmetric Reflector directs light exactly where you need it— onto the surface of the plant canopy— rather than on the walls or the floor, where it is wasted.

Engineered for exceptional optical performance, the Asymmetric Reflector delivers a unique optical distribution—projecting the light in a single horizontal direction, with a precise cut-off below—making it the ideal choice for applications along the outer walls and pathways of the growing facility.

Fixtures equipped with the Asymmetric Reflector can be mounted in multiple orientations to produce a precisely controlled, uniform gradient of light in the direction it is needed.

To learn more about the Asymmetric Reflector and how incorporating it into your light plan could help you achieve the best possible lighting efficiencies in your growing facility, contact PL Light Systems at 1.800.263.0213 or
