Medium – SunKing branded 80cm reflector
Large – Generic 1 meter reflector
Parabolic White Reflector
The Parabolic reflector has an incredibly even light spread and a design that produces low heat levels directly under the lamp, meaning that it
can be lowered further than is often possible when using conventional reflectors without burning the tops of plants.
- Superb, uniform light spread
- Constructed from premium grade components
- Eliminates hotspots
- Supplied with IEC lead for simple connection to ballasts
- Vented top section to reduce heat build-up
- Can be kept closer to the top of the canopy than standard reflectors
- Highly reflective imperial white powder finish
- Can be used with both CFLs and HID lamps
- 8 x reflector leaf panels
- 1 x bag of assorted nuts bolts and washers
- 1 x E40 lamp holder
- 1 x top plate
- (bulb and ballast supplied separately)
How the Parabolic reflector works:
The Parabolic is a curved reflector that houses your choice of HID lamp via its supplied E40 lamp holder. Unlike most other reflectors, the
lamp in this unit is mounted vertically and the majority of its output is directed sideways towards curved surfaces and reflected back down
towards the canopy. This method creates a more uniform spread of light than when using horizontally mounted lamps. Naturally, an even light
spread leads to a more even canopy, adding consistency when growing larger numbers of plants in a given area. These effects are all enhanced
greatly by the reflector’s ‘imperial white powder’ finish.
Using the Parabolic:
To assemble the parabolic, lay the top plate on a large flat surface so that the vents are facing downwards. The leaves can then be fitted over
the outer edge of the plate, one at a time. Note that each leaf should overlap the previous leaf as you secure the ‘M4’ nuts, bolts and washers
in place. Gently bend the reflector leaves if necessary to enable the nuts and bolts to be fitted easily. Repeat the process until the
reflector is complete. Once done, turn the reflector over and use the 4 sets of ‘M5’ nuts and bolts to secure the E40 lamp holder in place.
The Parabolic reflector is designed for use with any vertically mounted HPS or MH lamp. Simply hang the reflector over the centre of the
grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, jack chains or rope ratchets.
