The Kind LED Bar Light is the perfect solution for commercial greenhouse applications and home grows. The unlimited mounting options make them the perfect choice for anyone wanting to add to their existing setup or someone looking to push the limits of what’s possible in a grow space.
Because of the low profile design and IP65 rating, they can be used in an infinite number of ways:
- All indoor and greenhouse supplemental lighting situations
- All primary lighting situations for average light use plants such as microgreens, lettuce, or basil
- All primary lighting situations for all types of seedlings or clones
- Vertical wall setups
- Stacked or racked multi-layer systems such as fodder systems
- Free hanging lighting between plant rows
- Outside/inside edge lighting in grow tents
- Vertical plant lighting in trellised greenhouses for climbing plants such as cucumbers
- Replacement fixtures for any T-5 fluorescent setup
Flower Bar Light Versions
The Flowering bar lights are biased on the red end of the spectrum and are great for all supplemental lighting on high light use plants that are in the flowering stage, or as standalone flower stage lights for plants such as cactus or carnivorous plants.
Macro and Micro versions
The Flower bar lights are split into two main categories - Macro and Micro.
The Macro version offers the main spectra needed for Flowering growth. The Macro Spectrum is comprised of the major blue and red bandwidths that are readily absorbed by plants and major building blocks for photosynthesis.
The Micro version offers the more secondary spectrums needed for Flowering growth. The Micro Spectrum is comprised of the bandwidths that are used by the plants in lesser amounts like the oranges, greens, yellows, IR, and UV.
The Macro version would have the main spectrums needed for robust flowering and the Micro version would offer the secondary spectrums needed to round out a more complete spectrum if using multiple bar lights over one area.
To add supplemental light to a greenhouse or indoor grow, you would want to lean more toward the ‘A’ spectrum bar lights. If you are composing a multiple light setup and/or will be using the bar lights as a primary light source to light a hydroponic table or vertical setup, it is suggested that for every two ‘A’ bar lights used, one ‘B’ bar light will be added in, thus a 2 to 1 ratio of ‘A’ to ‘B’.
Coverage area and hanging height
The footprint of the bar lights is relative to the overall length of light used (ie. 2ft, 3ft, 4ft). At a 12” hanging height, the usable light will extend out from the edges of the bar light by 3” to 6” inches, so spacing between the bars would be 6” to 12” apart. This type of spacing would work for all primary lighting applications that deal with average light use plants such as leafy greens. If using as supplemental lighting, the spacing would be determined on several factors such as current lighting setup, position of lighting, and light requirements.
