What HGUK Say....
First impressions are good, the item is well made, fairly light and seems pretty robust! a good soilid sized reflector capabale of excellent spread capabilities. This is the improved version of the original and comes in 2 sizes depending on the lights and space you are using.... This grostar reflector was designed with 2 main things n mind. extra large spread and to eliminate hot spots! We have not run tests on this reflector our selves yet but initial impressions are good and we have heard plenty of good things from customers....
What Grostar Say....
Minimum of 95% Total Reflectivity and Multi-Layered Surfacing Brightened. The Grostar is made from a combination of the following alloys namely MIRO; Aliminium/Silver, Silicon dioxide and Titanium Dioxide.
MIRO is capable of reflecting a 'plant friendly' spectrum due to its colour correcting qualities. This means reflection is of a fuller spectrum making for more lush plant growth. Miro is used in Lighting industries to increase the efficiency of any available lighting source. The Grostar is the only reflector in the world today that is made from MIRO.
The angles created for this reflector were designed by physicists to omit a perfectly even, downward spread of light. The completely even light spread has many benefits including reduced 'Hotspots' and maximum efficiency from the light source. Gardens grow level under this reflector, the Grostar almost eliminates pyramidal growth patterns.
The intense reflection given from the GroStar makes sure artificial lighting sources penetrate deep canopies of foliage meaning no wasted Energy and maximum plant production.
The GroStar is made from one piece of material. This is to maximise reflectivity as any joins, folds etc in the material would equate to a loss of reflected lumens.
The GroStar can actually decrease a gardens artificial lighting requirements by maximising the reflection and spread from each source of light.
This is the ultimate in horticultural reflector technology.
