Ever used Adjust-A-Wings? They're powerful in the right hands! 

You can use it to create an even canopy, maximise your yield and mimic seasonal conditions. You can also use it to keep your light footprint the same, regardless of your hanging height.

Here's how you get the best from yours.

Optional Super Spreader (removable)

Why Use a Super Spreader?

To get an even canopy and bigger overall yield.

With most reflectors

Bright hot spots build up under your lamp.

Plants closest to your lamp grow towards the light and heat.

The taller central plants cast a shadow over the shorter plants nearby, restricting their access to light and heat.

This stunts their growth and limits your overall yield.

With a Super Spreader

You won’t get any bright hot spots - light and heat is spread out evenly.

All plants grow at a similar rate, and you’ll get a much bigger final yield. 

By spreading light and heat out, you can bring your light much closer to plants without burning or stretching. 

  • You can bring your light much closer to plants
  • Prevent stretching & burning canopy
  • Get an even canopy and bigger yield

Coverage

Adjust-A-Wings reflectors are best used with 1m x 1.5m footprint. As you raise and lower your light, tweak you wing position to keep your footprint the same.

Since light and heat are spread out so evenly, you only need 200cm of height, even with the 750W systems.

Reflector Options

There are three reflectors to choose from:

Avenger: 97% reflective TR-V-PVD aluminium
Enforcer: 86% reflective anodised aluminium
Defender: 93% reflective titanium powder coated H18 aluminium


600W Options

You can get a traditional 600W system.
