Ready for the next generation of farming
GN designs and manufactures the very latest in LED grow light technology for Photo-bio applications. The Telos series is a new range LED grow lights, designed and manufactured in the UK by GN for growing taller plants in both harsh greenhouse conditions and indoor farming platforms where natural light may be limited. The light intensity distribution of the Telos range has been calibrated to provide optimal light absorption through a stable, homogenised source, reducing 'hot spots' which can occur in other lighting products. As a high end horticultural product it offers excellent energy efficiency, is both robust and waterproof and provides a natural working light. Our uniquely engineered technology allows for huge energy savings against traditional HID counterparts (often used in horticulture applications), whilst our in-house manufacturing and direct to customer sales model allows us to offer the most competitive prices in the advanced LED grow light technology sector.Read More Go to Store
GNUK LTD is a British biosystems engineering company specialising in photo-bio lighting solutions. Founded in 2009, the company's main focus was to utilise developments in semiconductor technologies to advance artificially powered photo-bioreactor platforms. Since 2009 we have been conducting research and development in this area; working with leading semiconductor manufacturers to develop mechanical, optical, thermal and electrical elements to support the latest in LED emitter technology. In 2013 we opened a manufacturing facility in the UK in order to produce high quality, original lighting systems; designed specifically to meet the needs of our clients. Now, in 2017, we are looking to expand the application of our products; utilising the technology, expertise and bespoke components that we have developed over the last 8 years to seek innovative solutions to many of the challenges facing our ecosystems today.Read more
By studying how plants react to different wavelength we unlocked a new way of thinking on the quality of spectrum. We found that monochromatic (single colour like royal blue and deep red) LED’s seemed to work most efficiently to drive photosynthesis on a cellular level, optimising plant attributes such as the shape, movement and leaf size. Our goal was to create a well weighted but balanced full spectrum as we felt this was an important quality of artificial plant lighting. We were able to achieve this by developing the ideal combination of varying LED emitters, creating a greater overall quality of spectrum which performs efficiently.
We have some of the leading UK engineers working in house to develop new optical, electrical and mechanical advancements. Some of our latest innovations that feature in our new Telos series is our single stage holographic optics. These were developed following on from our original holographic series (HS1) launched in 2015. The holographic optics distribute the light from the LEDs evenly across the plant canopy decreasing hot spots (a common problem with artificial grow lights), increasing the PAR absorption by plants and improving plant quality and health. This unique technology makes the Telos series some of the best LED grow lights available to date.
Our drive to bring new improvements to market and expand the applications of LEDs to new sectors means we have forged close working relationships with some the world's best component manufacturers. For our new Telos series we have teamed up with CREE, a leader in in the manufacture of high powered LED emitters. The latest XPG3 and XPE LEDs from CREE’s Xlamp family are up to our high standards and have proven to be perfect for our best ever series of LED grow lights. This partnership has allowed us to develop the Telos series with an efficiency of 1.9 micromoles per Joule and a high quality full spectrum which is perfect for full cycle growing.
The number of indoor horticulture and biomanufacturing applications has been limited in the past by the high energy costs and low mechanical versatility of high pressure sodium lighting (HPS). Developments in the efficiency of high powered LED along with advancements in renewable energy such as solar power and biomass generators have made a range of new applications viable. Specifically for the production of food, the world's population is growing and the logistics of food imports and exports are becoming more complex. LED technology can enable everyone from small startups to large scale producers to grow high quality produce locally and affordably. Compact, waterproof full spectrum led grow lights like the Telos series tick all the boxes.
Our grow lights allow you feed yourself and your hobby year round. LED technology is seen as a high cost of ownership, however we work to lower the cost of our solutions whilst maintaining the performance and quality standards. We want to make this technology affordable to the point that an LED grow room can be same cost as owning a TV, mobile or PC so that everybody can learn, benefit and become less reliant on big supermarket chains to provide fresh produce. With our technology you can grow your own satisfyingly high quality and organic produce at a fraction of the price you’d pay for it at the supermarket.
