RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

  • At Zortech LED we are very passionate about science and technology. We invest in the most advanced equipment, and our Integrated Sphere is a great example. 
  • We research and test existing LED products at our facility in Simcoe, ON.
  • In the spring of 2018 we ran a grow trial, testing 7 LED brands.
  • We're continuously testing grow lights with vegetable and flower growers.
  • Based on trial data, the requirements of our customers, plus our own research and experience in the LED business we have developed several in-house grow lights.
  • The indoor/vertical farming/propagation LED Grow Strips are now available to our customers (see the product page).
  • We continue the development of our new greenhouse fixture that will be available to our customers in early 2019.
  • In cooperation with UofT (University of Toronto) we are working on a project to develop more efficient cooling technology for LED heat sinks, creating low-profile & lightweight grow fixtures. 

Based on our research and vast experience in LED technology, we have developed our own Grow Strip Light.. GS 92 and GS 36/46 are available to our customers now.

We do our own extensive research on existing grow lights, and in the spring of 2018 ran a LIGHTING Grow Trial to compare the performance of the indoor grow lights of several major manufacturers in greenhouse operations. The results of the trial available to our customers upon request. 

We continue to test several models of supplemental grow lights in local greenhouses. The feedback is positive. As an example: just one of our less powerful lights at only 150 w is showing comparable performance

to 2 x 400w HPS lights. 

We continue to test grow lights for vegetable and flower growers as well as for use in  propagation.
