Keep your grow light cool and get a great spread of light with a DARKSTAR Air Cooled Lighting System. In high temperatures and low ceiling tents they're a lifesaver!
To remove heat, cold air rushes through the reflector and over the bulb, cooling them both. It works like a charm. But just in case, to further shield the lamp and canopy from heat, the reflector has a protective black outer shell.
You can bring your DARKSTAR much closer to your plants - remember, they're air-cooled! They're super if you've got a low ceiling tent or just want to boost growth.
As for the build, it's incredible! Every line and curve was cut to perfection. For maximum cooling, your reflector's completely air tight.
Light distribution is far, far better than what you get with most air-cooled lights. Thank your reflector's shape and ultra-reflective interior for that.
You'll find it easy to check, clean & maintain your reflectors with their sliding glass panel. In summer, you'd be mad not to use one.

Which Extractor Fan Do You Need?
You need an extractor fan to push air through your reflector.
Forget the guesswork, get a complete Air Cooled Lighting Extraction Kit – they’ve been created specifically for DARKSTAR reflectors:
• For the 125mm DARKSTAR, choose the 125mm Air Cooled Lighting Kit
If you have more than one light, you will need a more powerful fan. Visit your local store, start a live chat, or call 0333 003 22 96 for more help.

Is it safe to connect a DARKSTAR Reflector to an existing extraction system?
You can use your existing extraction system with air cooled lights (if your fan is powerful enough), but we wouldn’t recommend it.
You’ll be using warm, extracted grow room air that has passed through carbon filters and become dusty. Because the air is warm, it won’t cool your bulb or reflector as well. Worse yet, dust from your carbon filter will end up building up on bulbs and reflector glass panels – this will obscure light.
You’re far, far better of using a separate fan to draw in cold, cleaner air (from outside your grow room) through your reflector and then back of out your grow room.
