Seattle, WA, August 29, 2017, Active Grow, the commercial grade horticultural lighting manufacturers’ Sweet Grass Series™ 300W LED Grow Light is the first to receive the new ETL Horticultural Lighting Certification from Intertek. Intertek has recognized the Active Grow SG300 LED grow light as a significant development in horticultural lighting technology, allowing the SG300 luminaire to be eligible for big rebates in commercial grow facilities.
The ETL Horticultural Lighting Certification Program is the first of its kind in the industry as an additional set of safety and performance standards for horticulture lighting manufacturers. According to Intertek, horticultural luminaires are different from general lighting in that they should also be tested in regards to where they are being deployed, like high-stress agriculture environments, damp greenhouses and highly regulated commercial cannabis facilities.
The Active Grow SG300 LED grow light conforms to all of the ETL Horticultural Lighting Certification Program requirements including; elevated ambient temperature requirements, corrosion resistance requirements, high humidity requirements, ingress protection requirements, UV protection requirements and supply connection requirements.
“The SG300 grow light was designed specifically for commercial horticulture environments where the conditions are a lot tougher on luminaires,” says Active Grow’s Managing Director, Taylor Schaberg, “I am glad that Intertek has recognized the SG300’s exceptional performance as a new standard in this growing industry.”
