The Euro Grow Light is built around the original Euro style reflector that continues to stand the test of time, and remains the most popular selling reflector design of all time.
This is a great piece of value kit with solid ballast and lamp options - you can easily upgrade to a top of the line reflector at a later date without having to replace the ballast and lamp.
Reflector Measurements (approx):
All of our grow light kits are supplied with Sunmaster Dual Spectrum Lamps as standard - other ballast & lamp combinations are available on request.
All the kits are available with several different types of ballast, please make your selection from the dropdown above. You can click the links below for more info on each ballast:

It depends on how far above the plant you position the light, but as a rough guide the 250W version will cover around 0.5m to 0.8m, the 400W version will cover around 0.7m to 1.0m and the 600W version will cover around 1.0m to 1.5m.How much electricity do these lights use?
To work out how much electricity they use simply find out how much you pay per for your electricty per kilowatt hour (1000W), divide this figure by 1000 then multiply by the wattage of the light. For example, if you pay £0.09 pence per kilowatt hour and you wish to work out how much it will cost to run a 400W light, simply divide 0.09 by 1000 then multiply the result by 400 (you would be paying 3.6 penece per hour that the light was switched on). Simple as that, and this rule applies to all grow lights and CFL lights.How do I hang these lights?
If your reflector is say 50cm long, you will need two fixing points approx this distance apart that are capable of taking the weight of the reflector (this reflector weighs around 2KG). Most people tend to screw a couple of vine eyes into whatever surface is above the light, and then use either jack chain or Easy-Rolls to lower and raise the lights as needed.
