The Euro Grow Light is a great piece of cost-effective kit built around the original Dutch Barn style - the most popular selling reflector design of all time.

Durable and reliable, it outputs a considerable amount of light with good heat dispersal due to its open-ended design.

Great for those on a budget.

The Euro Grow Light is built around the original Dutch Barn style reflector that continues to stand the test of time and remains the most popular selling reflector design of all time.

While this reflector may not be in the performance category of the Great 8 or Supernova, it outputs a considerable amount of light and tends to run at a cooler temperature due to its open-ended design.

This is a great piece of value kit with solid ballast and lamp options - you can easily upgrade to a top-of-the-line reflector at a later date without having to replace the ballast and lamp.

Reflector dimensions (approx):

Length: 47cm

Width: 40cm

Depth: 15cm

The Euro Grow Light Kit is available with 5 ballast options. You can click the links below for more info on each ballast

What kind of area do these lights cover?

It depends on how far above the plant you position the light, but as a rough guide the 250W version will cover around 0.5m to 0.8m, the 400W version will cover around 0.7m to 1.0m and the 600W version will cover around 1.0m to 1.5m.

How much electricity do these lights use?

To work out how much electricity they use simply find out how much you pay for your electricity per kilowatt-hour (1000W), divide this figure by 1000 then multiply by the wattage of the light. For example, if you pay £0.09 pence per kilowatt-hour and you wish to work out how much it will cost to run a 400W light, simply divide 0.09 by 1000 then multiply the result by 400 (you would be paying 3.6 pence per hour that the light was switched on). Simple as that, and this rule applies to all grow lights and CFL lights.

How do I hang these lights?

If your reflector is say 50cm long, you will need two fixing points approx this distance apart that are capable of taking the weight of the reflector (this reflector weighs around 2KG). Most people tend to screw a couple of vine eyes into whatever surface is above the light, and then use either jack chain or Easy-Rolls to lower and raise the lights as needed.
