Grow light or assimilation lighting stimulates the growth of plants through artificial light. Royal Brinkman offers a wide range of grow lights.

Grow lights in greenhouse horticulture

Grow lights or assimilation lighting is the artificial light that has been used for years in professional greenhouse horticulture. Grow lights are a welcome addition to natural (sun) light. The use of artificial light stimulates plant growth and flowering, because plants can then assimilate longer and to grow vegetables indoors. Light ensures that photosynthesis of the plant takes place. In practice, growers do not always have enough supplemental light at their disposal. Grow lights then offer a solution. Especially during the winter months, assimilation lamps are often used in the illuminated cultivation of fruit vegetable crops to keep the amount of supplemental light at the right level. At Royal Brinkman you can buy a wide range of Agrolux grow lights. The choice of a led grow light depends on your growing situation. You should take into account the desired light spectrum and the type of cultivation. Grow lights can be divided into two groups: HID/SON-T lamps and LED grow lights. Read the article by our specialist on how to choose the right grow lamps.

Application of grow lights

Grow lights is used for crops such as: peppers, roses, chrysanthemums, cucumbers, tomatoes, orchids (phalaenopsis) and gerberas. Of course, light is an important component in the cultivation of plants indoors. Insufficient light intensity reduces the overall weight of a plant and causes stress symptoms. A consequence of this is a reduced yield and smaller leaves. However, it is important to take into account the rules of the Dutch Environmental Management Activities Decree. For example, you should have a light screen installation - consisting of, one or more screen cloths - when you are exposed in the evening. 

Inspection and inspection of assimilation lighting

Faulty grow lamps are one of the biggest causes of fire in greenhouse horticulture. Because of safety and the increasing importance of inspection reports for insurance, grow lights must be inspected every three to five years. In addition to the inspection, an annual inspection of supplemental lamps is of great importance. This reduces the risk of fire and maintains the light output.
