Hi everyone, We have awesome news which we have been holding onto but we stoked that we can tell you this, Its something we feel that can help push the overall quality of the LED grow light industry in South Africa in a better direction. So much to choose from and no one to really to put your money on except a special few. Congratulations to them and they are just as hard working as the next person trying to get there product noticed, this post is in no way a dig at the industry it’s something positive . Certified listed lights ,so you know your aren’t being shafted.
It’s so bad at the moment and I only will say that in regards to quality cause the prices are a dead giveaway.
Components are expensive, you can be the richest company in the world but components still cost the same, this is because its a premium product and has been thoroughly sought after , it meets all the requirements and there are so many requirements that most manufacturers cannot meet these and choose not to get lights properly tested , and so the profit predator wins and continues to pollute the market with sub par lights to unsuspecting customers whose service they recieved was great but the product they grow with somehow just isn’t what they thought it was.
Most of the range that is available is DLC listed.
Now that is a peace of mind that I think the whole industry has been looking for, We know there are fixtures out there that are DLC listed and thats great , some of you or possibly a-lot of you know the benefits that come with a DLC listing
3 important fields of light design are tested through a non-profit organisation. They ensuring that the amount of LED light manufacturers out there don’t get by the quality checks that are needed, especially when hard earned cash is been sent overseas to a company you have no idea about. This is a safe guard for that exact situation. Chosen fixtures that get to be sold over seas in N.America are put through these tests with 3 key areas, Light distribution, Color spectrum, and Longevity.
When the DLC is approved it means the fixture you have bought has been tested thoroughly in these areas. Meaning energy efficient, light distribution is of standard for greenhouse/indoor farming requirements and that the colour spectrum is correct for said tested light and lastly, longevity , testing that the quality of the components are met. The last one is the costly part and alot of buyers are chased away when they are buying even from overseas manufacturers,
excellent components are not cheap. Thats why quality lasts for much longer than any other fixture with that is not DLC certified.
So, we shouldn’t be surprised at the cost they will be going at retail because the 5 year warranty ensures the buyer that our customer support will be of high standard ie: discussing, troubleshooting ,getting replacements, ordering parts whatever the case maybe. The best part is that you wont have to experience a-lot of that and after 3 years you realise you have actually saved on costs like really saved (up to 40/60% energy savings). Its great when you buy quality and you can feel it in your hands, the weight, the finish, the build. Its a thing of beauty.
What make us different is that we have our range from clone lights, UV, strawberry spectra, Veg, Flower, supplermentry and more, we know its a cut throat industry at the moment and we aren’t here to disrupt or instigate any bad business or bad mouthing, we follow positive transparent business practices and we take a good look at anything before we get involved, Our range is special and what you see online is only what we choose to put up as not to over expose ourselves.
The fact we found everything under one roof is amazing and I would like to tell that story one day. We are very proud of our manufacturer and they are ready to enter into the South African market . We also understand local is F@#ken lekker so anybody with any ideas on a collaboration for something they thinking about, give us a shout and we will try get you the best components for that idea. I’ll be the guy on the ground trying to negotiate the best light for the project at hand, costing and logistics etc. We aren’t profit hungry but we wont cut ourselves short either. These are professional fixtures and business will be treated the same way.
As our introductory price seems low for such high-end fixtures, it will be going up, the industry is slow, especially slow for lights that are more than others. It’s difficult, we gonna get this though. Its top quality and it gives us a nice foundation to build on. We are very grateful to be-able to provide/supply these lights to you and hope we can share the magic.
If there are questions we are more than happy and motivated to discuss any queries anyone might have. We are quite protective of our price-lists and spec-sheets as there are many imitations and disruptive groups out there and we don’t want to ruin what we already worked so hard for. That being said If you know you growing with confidence you have no choice but to love your grow.
Professional explanation, lol.
DLC certification is handled by The DesignLights Consortium® (DLC), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the widespread use of high-performing commercial lighting solutions. The DLC established product quality specifications to promote high-quality, energy-efficient lighting solutions. They work with utilities and energy efficacy program members, manufacturers, lighting designers, and federal, state, and local entities.
The goal of the organization and certification is to create better energy efficiency programs by helping to identify and verify the highest-performing products and systems.
This voluntary certification initiative is set aside for LED technology and requires these lighting products to comply with specific standards in three areas:
Enjoy the start Flowering.
