CLOSE PROXIMITY DE-HPS LIGHTING KIT
We understand growers who go the extra mile for top quality—but this grow light delivers industry-leading yields too. Fully adjustable to continually give your plants the optimal lighting environment, the true efficiency and potential of 1000W DE-HPS lamps has finally been realized for commercial, boutique and home growers alike.
No need for high ceilings! This close proximity fixture can be safely positioned at just 22 to 24 inches (56 to 61 cm) from the canopy without causing heat stress or compromising its huge footprint.
Grow and believe! The Hellion 1000W Close Proximity DE-HPS covers a massive 5’ x 7’ (1.5m X 2.1m) footprint—yes, even when up close!
The secret is two-fold: the unique reflector design which spreads radiant emissions evenly while allowing convection heat to escape upwards AND the Super Spreader which fits just beneath the lamp, mitigating the risk of hotspots and affording a much closer placement overall.
Commercial and hobby growers alike LOVE this fixture because they can light bigger spaces with fewer fixtures and less energy consumption. HVAC systems breathe a sigh of relief while plants enjoy all the light they need.
DEEPER CANOPY PENETRATION
Proximity = Penetration = Yield
No more canopy tickling! You can get as close as 22 – 24 inches (56 – 61 cm) meaning less light wastage to walls and floors and more on your plants! This naturally leads to more premium flower and less schwag! Production focused indoor growers need to stimulate the whole plant and this means getting as close as possible to the light source. The Hellion 1000W Close Proximity DE-HPS drives top-shelf production even at second and third tier flower sites leading to a whole new dimension in yield and improved crop quality and homogeneity.
Commercial warehouse growers using 1000W DE-HPS lamps in deep-dish, greenhouse style reflectors are typically forced to allow five to 7 feet (152 – 213 cm) above the plant canopy in order to avoid over-heating their plants. This “brute-force” approach massively compromises overall system efficiency as a huge amount of light is inevitably lost to walls and space outside of the active growing area.
In search of unmatched efficiency, performance and spectral integrity we developed and engineered our own e-ballast and lamp as a pair. When ballast and lamp manufacturers develop their wares separately, they are forced to engineer generic products for a wide market (lamps to work on the largest range of ballasts vs. ballasts which are able to fire the widest variety of lamps). Compromises are invariably necessary.
By taking a holistic “ground-up” approach we believe that we are engineering for the real world of the grower—and delivering a flowering spectrum as close to perfection as anything available on the market.
LONGER LAMP LIFE
Adjust-A-Wings reflectors do not suffer from heat build-up unlike small, deep-dish greenhouse style hoods. Its open-ended design allows heat to easily escape meaning lamps run cooler and offer high PAR maintenance for up to two years.
Compatible with all leading brands of digital lighting controllers.

Large Wing Adaptor Kit
WHY ARE ADJUST-A-WINGS ADJUSTABLE?
In any living system, the smallest adjustment can make a big difference!
Adjust-A-Wings are designed to allow growers to mimic the subtle changes in light quality which occur outdoors over the growing season. By widening or narrowing the width of the Adjust-A-Wings, growers can adjust the spread and radiant intensity of the light.
The unique, double-parabolic Large Adjust-A-Wings Defender reflector supplied with the Hellion 1000W Close Proximity DE-HPS kit has five width settings and five lamp height settings. Narrower settings are used for vegetative growth and transition. Wide settings are for transition to generative production (flowering). Medium setting for maturation.
The HELLION UHF electronic ballast has five power settings (600W/ 750W / 830W / 1000W / 1100W) to drive the perfectly matched HELLION DE-HPS lamp at five key intensity bands.
WHAT DOES THE SUPER SPREADER DO?
The Super Spreader fits directly beneath the lamp and spreads radiant emissions so they are more evenly distributed across the footprint. This ingenious device really comes into its own with 1000W DE-HPS lamps. It affords a much closer placement to your plant canopy than is possible with other grow lights so growers are able to deliver unmatched levels of incident intensity to their plants without causing heat stress to the plants directly beneath the lamp.
Put another way, the Super Spreader essentially gives growers a much wider margin for error, allowing deeper penetration of light into the plant canopy, promoting increased production on second and third tier flowering sites, not just at top canopy level.
