In this Verizontal Parabolic Reflector, the bulb can be positioned horizontally or vertically.
ADVANTAGES OF HORIZONTAL REFLECTORS:
HID lamps emit light in a continuous 360-degree ring emanating out from the arc tube. The main reason horizontally mounted lamps perform well is because much of their light is thrown downward.
95% reflective German aluminum insert for excellent output and uniformity.
Increased optical efficiency by 10% with new design
Reflector dimensions: 42in Diameter x 16in Tall
Wide even light distribution
Delivers all the light down to the plants
It operates MH/HPS lamps in the horizontal position but in an eight-sided parabolic shaped reflector. In the horizontal burning position, much of the lamp's light is thrown straight down and the balance of the lamp's light which is emanating upward is re-directed back down to the plant canopy from the 95% reflective German aluminum insert.
ADVANTAGES OF VERTICAL REFLECTORS:
Large size provides a wide area of coverage from low mounting heights.
Will accommodate all sizes of MH and HPS lamps.
Low mounting height reduces the distance to plants and thus increased light levels.
Easy assembly with just one Phillips screwdriver.
