Why Buy Full Spectrum LED Lights?
Reduced Energy Consumption – Less Watts! + Reduced Maintenance Costs! + More Light! = Savings!!
PerformaLUX® High Output Full Spectrum LED Lights bring modern technology and energy efficiency to a new level.
Converting your current light fixtures to PerformaLUX® High Output Full Spectrum LED Lights will result in substantial energy and maintenance savings and improve the quality of your light.
These super efficient and high quality LED lights provide crisp, flicker-free light to any grow, warehouse, manufacturing facility, laboratory, or other demanding location,
while saving 80% electricity compared to HPS, 75% compared to Metal Halide and Fluorescent Lights.
Easy to install and economical, these workhorses provide years of service, with TM-21 rated L70 lifetime of over 80,000 hours.
Eliminate up to 90% of your maintenance costs by not having to replaced burned out bulbs and tubes.
These lights come in a very light weight format and run on DC low voltage, with very low amps and a separate driver that converts from 120v AC.
This low voltage feature means you can run these safely with light-gauge wire and locate the driver remotely in a safe dry location
Why FULL SPECTRUM – LED Lights?
Not all white light is the same. Many of the incandescent and halogen “replacement” LED lights currently on the market use less energy but are not true replacements as the white light they emit is of relatively poor quality.
In applications where appearance is of paramount importance, light quality cannot be compromised.
High CRI (color rendering index) LED lights dramatically improve the appearance of products by allowing colors to appear clear, vivid and distinguishable all with lower energy cost!
By taking a slightly different approach and creating an innovative emission spectrum, our LED lights have achieved the highest color rendering available using the most advanced technologies, offering a true energy efficient replacement.
WHAT IS HIGH CRI?
CRI (color rendering index) is a measure of how accurately a light source illuminates an objects true colors.
Our LED lights have CRI values of up to 98, indicating that our LED lights are able to produce full spectrum light that exceeds that of halogen or incandescent lighting, like natural daylight.

WHAT ABOUT GROW LIGHTS?
Grow Lights and the importance of Full Spectrum Color
In Grow Lights color is king!
Color is most accurately described by a combination of Kelvin Temperature and CRI.
So K + CRI = Growth
WHAT IS THE “K” – KELVIN RATING?
The K rating is just one way of measuring the color output of a light.
The higher the Kelvin temperature gets, the bluer the light is.
K rating tells you very little about what type of light within the full spectrum is being emitted.
COLOR RENDERING INDEX – CRI
CRI is a numeric indication of a lamp’s ability to render the full color spectrum accurately.
The higher the CRI the more natural and vibrant the full spectrum of colors are.
A bulb with a CRI of 95 or higher is excellent for growing; the sun has a CRI of 100.
Yet only part of solar radiation is used by plants for photosynthesis, the blue to red part of the spectrum.
This Photosynthetically Active Radiation zone contains the wavelengths between 400 and 700 nanometers. Light is measured on a scale in nanometers (radiated wavelength) from 400nm (violet) to 700nm (red).
Most people choose lighting solely based on the Kelvin temperature of a bulb.
As stated this tells you very little about what type of light within the spectrum is being emitted and at what strength.
To get the best Full Spectrum Grow Light, Blue Light and light well into the Red Spectrum, you need High K and High CRI!
