HPS grow lighting

Despite having less control over light and heat radiation, in specific climatic conditions, HPS grass grow lighting technology is an efficient and effective way to restore the grass playing surface to perfect condition after a match, training, or event. Our HPS grow lighting systems combine PAR light and infrared radiation in one fixture, making this light source the best solution for situations where temperatures are low throughout the year.

The SGL LED440 is set via the advanced SmartBox.

State-of-the-art technology

HPS grass grow lighting technology is a proven method to restore the grass playing surface from wear and tear. Our products are manufactured in-house, allowing us to tailor them perfectly to meet the needs of the market. Our agronomy team and developers work closely together to keep improving and innovating our technology and products, resulting in future-proof service.

Data-driven decision making

Years of research have gone into optimising our growth model. We calculate the light and temperature requirements for the desired grass quality, including electricity costs and savings per year. Our algorithm determines where and how long you should deploy the grow lighting units and use its lighting and heating features for the optimal growth conditions. Based on 24/7 data from our monitoring tools, our lighting advice on the Portal is continuously updated to make sure the goals are met in the most energy efficient way.
