- How to Use
The Adjust-A-Wings Defender Reflector is sold flat pack and requires some basic assembly. Step-by-step manufacturer instructions are provided.
We recommend suspending the reflector from your ceiling or grow tent roof using Heavy Duty Rope Ratchets or Ezi-Roll Light Hangers - but chain will do a good enough job too.
'S' Hooks and Ceiling Hook Plates will also be needed.
For best results, aim to keep a consistent 1.5m wide spread of light. To do this, adjust your lampholder and reflector wings as you raise or lower lights to keep your footprint the same.
When starting vegetative growth, narrow your beam angle and position your reflector high in the grow room. Position the lampholder quite far away from the reflector to provide a consistent and even spread of light.
You’ll be able to visibly see any shadows by looking at the light distribution on your grow room floor. If there are any shadows, adjust the lampholder position to remove them.
As the plants become stronger and bigger…bring your reflector closer to plants. You’ll need to widen your beam angle as you bring lights closer to plants, to maintain the 1.5m spread.
At each adjustment, make sure you also adjust the lampholder position to even the spread of light.
To prevent hot spots forming, when your reflector’s really close to the plant canopy, bring your lamp closer to your reflector. This artificially creates a shadow (heat shield attached) in the centre of your light spread. This reduces the light in this area, to prevent stretching. This gives you an even canopy for maximum productivity across your crop.
In the final stages of growth, create an artificial autumn for your plants by slowly moving the reflector away from the canopy again, narrowing the focus as the reflector rises and adjusting the lampholder to create an even spread once more.
