Plant Growth

Luminessence designs and markets T5HO for specialty growth chambers. In 2001 Luminessence earned an Illuminating Engineering Society award for its redevelopment of 29 large growth chambers at the University of Alberta.

Luminessence is capable of doing site-specific rooms. Specially designed, specular reflectors, ballast boxes and asymmetric luminaries increased illumination and reduced energy consumption to 1/3 of its previous level. Plant growth performance is enhanced and the quality of research results improved.

Smaller luminaries are available for use in growth chambers and growing benches.
