The L20 increases plant growth and improves plant quality
Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Valoya’s CEO Lars Aikala comments: "The new tube light L20 is the first product in our L -series and completes our offering. We can now offer a solution for all types of plant growth needs. Installing L20 is as easy as replacing the old T8 fluorescent tube with a new L20 tube."
The new L -series complements the existing offering by giving the growers possibility to install the L20 -fixtures as close as 10 cm from the plants, without sacrificing light uniformity or damaging the plants with heat radiation from the fixture.
As with all Valoya products the plant optimized light spectrum of the L20, increases plant growth and improves plant quality compared to traditional fluorescent tubes or high pressure sodium lights. In the L20 the light spectrum has been modified also to better accommodate human eyes, i.e. it looks white for the human eye. This has been done with minuscule impact on the growth properties of the spectrum, thus the light is also suitable for use in spaces where humans co-exist with healthy growing plants.
