HORTILED Inter wins GIO Award


As an innovator in the field of grow light, Hortilux is very proud of the Good Industrial Design predicate that was granted to its newly developed HORTILED® Inter fixture on 11 October.


HORTILED Inter was specially designed for interlighting high-wire crops such as tomatoes. The fixture is intended to be installed between plants to supplement top lighting. With its 2.63 µmol/Joule, the efficient HORTILED Inter provides 10% more light than comparable commercially available products.

The smart reflector in the HORTILED Inter ensures a much better distribution of light between the plants than comparable products currently available on the market. With this light fixture the upper sides of the leaves are illuminated, so the plants receive the light there where they are able to make the most of it.
The connectors and separate driver box enable a simple installation and easy maintenance. The robust, slender design minimises the interception of light and is extremely suitable for heavy-duty greenhouse conditions.

New generation of LED fixtures

HORTILED Inter forms part of a new generation of fixtures that also includes HORTILED Top and HORTILED Multi. HORTILED Top is the most efficient LED fixture available on the market, providing 2.7 μmol/Joule, which makes it 42% more efficient than the HPS 1000W. HORTILED Multi was specially developed for multi-layer cultivation. Efficiencies of 2.5 μmol/Joule can be achieved. This makes the HORTILED Multi 60% more energy efficient than fluorescent lighting.

Good Industrial Design recognition

The Goed Industrieel Ontwerp (GIO; Good Industrial Design) recognition is an initiative of the independent foundation Designlink that is supported by a range of representative professional and sector organisations, knowledge and education institutes and intermediaries. All the products that have been awarded GIO recognition can be admired at the GIO show in the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week (22-30 October).
