The LightRail 4.0 slowly transports a single grow light back and forth along a 1.8 metre track. It is a great option in the summer, when you might want to remove a light to decrease the level of heat without losing the coverage. • Ideal for reducing the number of lights in a hot room • Ensures that you get even light distribution • Allows for closer light hanging positions above plants • Stops at each end of the track for a customisable duration • Energy efficient – only uses 5 Watts of electricity • Easy to install and able to carry a maximum 20kg load To prevent your reflector from spinning and utilise the LightRail 4.0 to maximum effect, we highly recommend investing in a Robo-Stik.
- How to Use
When temperatures rise in your grow room over a sustained period of time, you can tackle the issue by using a LightRail to reduce the total number of lights (the main source of heat for indoor gardens). It will handily increase the area covered by a single light – meaning you’re able to keep yields up running fewer lights than before!
- Q & A
Questions and Answers (4)would it be possible to use a light rail with an air cooled lighting system? if so, how? if not, why not...apart from ducting issues?I would not recommend using an air cooled lighting system with a light rail, as the light rail would struggle to support the weight of the reflector & fan. The other problem would be that the ducting would sag & potentially damage your plants.

Written by Michael | 16 Aug 2011how noisy or quiet is the light rail when in operation please.The Light rail motor unit is very quiet, it will produce a slight hum in operation.
Written by john | 15 Aug 2011can you use this in a tent?You could use a Light Rail in a XXL Budbox, we would not recommend using a rail in a tent less than 2.4 metres wide, as the track is 1.8 metres long. The track also needs to be level. We would recommend either mounting the track on a piece of wood, or securing it to the tent using cable ties or worm drive clips.
