The original Cool Shade was one of the first air cooled reflectors to become available and all these years later it is still a firm favourite with many growers. Effectively a 125mm inline glass tube, the Cool Shade allows you to blow or extract air through the reflector and over your lamp - thus taking the heat away before it can raise the temperature in your grow room. An additional clip on reflector is also supplied with the Cool Shade which improves your spread of light and reduces any light wastage. Multiple Cool Shades can be mounted in series along the same length of 125mm Combi Flexible Ducting although we would recommend a maximum of three shades when using an RVK125A1 Extractor Fan.

- Q & A
Questions and Answers (1)1. What are the dimensions? 2. How effective would a carbon filter be when attached at one end and an extractor at the other end?The Budget cool shade reflector is 48cm long, with a diameter of 12.5cm. If you are using a single coolshade, you could run a carbon filter in line, you would need to connect the filter to the fan, & blow this air through the coolshade. If you are using multiple coolshades, we would recommend using a separate extraction system, as you will need the full force of the fan going through the shades.
