The Coolshade grow light reflector is an air-tight, fully sealed clear glass tube with a lamp mounting bracket in its centre. It’s perfect for removing the excess heat generated by HID grow lights without leaking unpleasant odours.
Air is usually pulled (but can be pushed) over the lamp by adding an extractor fan to one side of the tube, the hot vented air is then expelled away from the grow room and plants. They’re very effective, somewhere in the region of 70-80% of heat is removed, and are therefore very popular with indoor gardeners who have limited space to work with.
There are two diameters of Coolshade’s available:
The 120mm (use 125mm ducting and fittings – cannot use 125mm Padded Collars) diameter is suitable for use with the 250W and 400W lighting systems. The 150mm diameter is better suited for use with 600W lighting systems.
120mm x400mm (560mm incl ducting flanges)
150mm x400mm (560mm incl ducting flanges)
Tip: A HID (HPS/Metal Halide/CDM) bulb will drop approx. 30% of its lumen output within 12-14 months of continuous use. We recommend replacing every 3-6months for optimum plant growth and yield output!
For multiple 120mm Coolshade:
We recommend running up to 2x 250/400w lighting systems in a row using 2x 120mm Coolshade’s and a 125mm Rhino Single Speed rvk fan.
For multiple 150mm Coolshade:
We recommend running up to 3x 600w lighting systems in a row using 3x 150mm Coolshade’s and a 150mm Rhino L1 Single Speed rvk fan.
The Coolshade reflector can be converted to use a 315w CDM ballast and lamps with our E40 to 315w CDM lamp holder adapter.
