Cool Shades were one of the first air cooled reflectors to become available and all these years later they are 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.

Written by Pedro | 21 Feb 2012Hi I just got a budget hobby 600w light system but im finding it hard to keep the temp down can I use this air cool reflector with that light system and will it bring my temp down ??Hi John, you can use a coolshade reflector with you lamp & ballast, you would need to buy the reflector, an RVK125 extractor fan, ducting, & quick release clips to attach the ducting to the fan & reflector.
