Introducing the Gorilla DE Pro Series
Starting today, the brand new DE Pro Series from Gorilla Commercial Lighting is available for preorder. Designed to withstand the rigors of the ever-growing commercial cannabis cultivation industry, the DE Pro Series allows growers to focus on growing, and not maintaining their fixtures.
“Most DE manufacturers will tell you that a 5% failure rate is commonplace and to be expected,” said Gorilla CEO Rory Kagan. “In some cases that number reaches as high as 15%. The DE Pro Series has been meticulously manufactured with the highest quality control standards, resulting in an amazingly low failure rate of less than 0.1%. As a grower, this means fewer headaches, less downtime, lower costs, and ultimately results in increased peace of mind and profitability. We truly believe that the Gorilla DE Pro Series is going to be the gold new standard in commercial grow lights.”
In manufacturing the DE Pro Series, Gorilla turned to a low-frequency square wave design. Though it’s significantly more expensive to manufacture, square-wave technology results in optimum PPF, less depreciation of output, and increases the lamp’s lifespan by 50% when compared to more common high-frequency sine wave ballasts.
Almost all standard sine wave fixtures operate at a high frequency of roughly 120,000 hertz. Square wave ballasts, on the other hand, run at about 120 hertz, so the maximum voltage is provided to the lamp for a longer period of time. This produces more photons for your plant, eliminates RF interference, and produces less stress on the fixture, which improves the performance of the lamp and allows it to run cooler. All this adds up to a more reliable, better performing grow light.
Perhaps most importantly, the Gorilla DE Pro Series boasts a failure rate of less than 0.1%, which translates to less labor, less downtime, and consequently, higher profit margins. An optional Gorilla Commercial intelligent digital lighting controller is capable of controlling over 500 luminaires simultaneously.
Gorilla’s DE grow light sports an optimized reflector design for broad, even PPFD throughout the footprint with no hot spots, and a durable powder-coated enclosure ensuring correct reflector form factor and eliminating the potential for exposed scorching hot metal that can often plague traditional DE grow lights. Additionally, the internal components are silicon coated to protect against humidity and dust, and the overengineered heatsink and properly designed thermals ensure the light will run cooler than any other DE on the market.
Since its inception in 2012, Gorilla Grow Tent quickly became the worldwide authority in grow tents, introducing a level of quality and design that had never before been seen in indoor enclosures. Gorilla Grow Tent has now turned that same attention to detail, love of growing, and passion for quality towards horticultural lighting. Just as Gorilla Grow Tent reinvented what a grow tent can and should be, it has now successfully done the same with DE fixtures.
The Gorilla Commercial Lighting DE Pro Series is now available for preorder with a retail price of $529.95. For commercial level inquires, contact a Gorilla lighting expert for a custom digital lighting plan at 855-448-4769.
