hydrofarm 4 feet 4 bulbCommercial T5 4 feet 4 tube fixture is grow light perfectly suited for smaller or medium indoors grow operations with intense light and energy-efficient features.

These commercial T5 light fixtures are made by US based company called Hydrofarm, who is the largest and oldest grow light producers in the United States with 35 years of experience in creating the best gardening equipment for all purposes and needs.

The greatest thing about this T5 grow light fixture is that it radiates very little heat. And that results in two amazing features of why t5 lights are better than any other grow lights.

If these lamps produce very little heat then your grow room will be that much cooler and you won’t have to think about how to get the excess heat out of your grow room. So in the end you will be the winner because you won’t have to buy huge ventilation systems to discharge the heat to make a better growing environment for your plants and you will be able to save some money in the process.

But the most important thing is that you will be able to put your plants right under these lights and you won’t have to worry about them getting heat damage as heat burns can cause damage to your plants or even kill them.

These bulbs also have a very even light distribution so the possibility of having places where the light is more concentrated or as growers refere to them – “hot spots” is very minimal. That also means that your plants will all grow evenly and there won’t be any bigger or smaller plants that can make caring for your plants a very difficult process as the smaller ones need to be raised to get that even light spread and the too tall ones need to be trained or lowered as they can quickly touch the bulbs and get too hot.

The lumen to watt ratio for these t5 grow lights is 87.037 lumen per Watt which is very good because these lights use only 216 watts for lumen output up to 18800 lumens. This means that even though you are saving your money on electricity you still get very intense light that helps you grow strong and healthy plants that in fact will get double the intensity of the light as the light from normal fluorescent light systems.

The color temperature of all 4 bulbs is 6400K and because it is roughly the same as the color temperature of our natural light source – the sun in the middle of the summer this light is best for plants when they are in their pre-flowering stages of their growth cycle or in other words when they do not produce any flowers.

Because they are very low profile commercial lights their measures is only 46 inches in length, 13.5 inches in width and 3 inches in height (116.84 cm x 34.29 cm x 7.62 cm). And despite the German specular aluminum interior and powder coated, pre-galvanized steel housing they weigh only 11.6 lbs (5.26kg)

You can also easily hang these lights in three different ways:

  1. Overhead

  2. Vertically

  3. Horizontally

These tree hanging configurations will allow you to to adapt these light to your garden not the garden to the lights.

This hydrofarm t5 grow light fixture also comes with ballast and 5 year warranty.

More than a half of all the people who have bought these lights on Amazon has given 5 out of 5 stars to these lights so they must be very happy with them:

This light is excellent constructed and workmanship. The light arrived in excellent shape. I would highly recommend this fixture to my friends.
