The Reflector Heat Shield is a sturdy, custom-fitted cover that double insulates your existing air-cooled hood against the heat your lights generate!
With the Reflector Heat Shield less heat escapes into your room and is instead contained within your hood to be better carried away by your existing air-cooling. This results in a cooler environment, happier plants and energy savings from increased A/C efficiency.
Note: This Heat Shield will only fit the newest style Radiant 8" fixtures, not the older style.
Reduce your grow room a/c electricity needs by 7 1/2% and keep the heat generated by your lamps from affecting your environment and stressing out your garden with the full line of radiant barrier reflector covers, duct covers, and fan covers, all custom-fitted!

Why hasn`t someone already thought of this?
They have! Radiant barrier is now used on roofs and in walls during home construction to reflect the warmth from solar radiation. Hydro Innovations has figured out how to apply that same IR blocking radiant barrier heat deflection to your grow room.
How can I test the Heat Shield?
Check the temperature of your reflector housing after 8 hrs or so (you can do this by taping an outdoor temperature sensor to the housing or by using an IR thermometer). If you subtract this temp from your desired room temp, you will notice a significant difference.
