The brightest reflectors in the industry
The Alpha Optics 98 reflector is developed according to the Single Bounce Clear Sight (SBCS) principal and is equipped with Miro Silver mirrors. Thanks to this, the highest possible efficiency (98%) of all available horticulture reflectors is reached. For better overlap and in order to minimize wall losses, the reflector is equipped with adjustable side reflectors. Thanks to the open reflector design, the lamp is passively cooled, which stimulates the lamp’s lifespan and efficiency.
To increase and enhance the total reflectivity of Miro Silver, the material used in DimLux Alpha Optics Reflectors, several nanometer-thin optical coatings must be applied to the aluminum surface in a vacuum. Miro Silver is on another level than the normal anodized aluminum lighting grades, also known as “hammer tone” or dimpled aluminum, that you’ll find on the competition. They only have a total reflectivity of up to 87%, while Miro Silver is 98% reflective.
The Miro-Silver Layer System
- Miro silver 98 has superior reflectance
- Miro silver has a significant higher reflectance in the red and IR spectrum
- Lower reflector temperature (indirect room temperature) caused by the superior IR reflectance.
- With Miro 95 more radiant IR heat will be converted into convection heat.
Dimlux Alpha Optics reflectors are used in all Dimlux fixtures. The combination of Single Bounce Clear Sight (SBCS) and specular Miro Silver reflectors give an unparalleled quantity of grow light and because of the optimized heat management the highest possible efficiency of any commercially available grow light.
The Single Bounce Clear Sight design prevents that light (or heat) bounces back into the reflector or lightbulb. Multiple reflections inside the reflector heat up the reflector because light is converted to heat. The result is less light and more heat.
This Reflector is for the DimLux 1000 Watt Grow Lights. The other 2 replacement reflectors can be found here:

The Alpha Optics Reflector has Unmatched Quality
SBCS is for single bounce clear sight. This means that the lights can only hit the reflector 1 time before the light leaves the reflector. The light can’t reflect back into the lamp as well. Result is more usable light and less heat development.
The convection-heat that is generated by the lamp goes up in the reflector. The reflector contains 50mm openings through which the heat can escape. Result > an improved thermoregulation resulting in a better lamp temperature.
The heat can escape from the reflector both passively (chimney effect) and actively. By active extraction with a ventilator at the 50mm round opening, the room temperature can significantly be reduced. The heat is extracted at the source, which is more efficient than cooling.
Maximize light with the Alpha Optics Add-on Reflectors
Light that shines on paths or walls is a nett loss of light. To compensate for light loss, the reflector is adjustable into 2 positions. An extra ADD-ON reflector can also be placed by which even less light gets lost.
Available as add-ons, are 2 extra reflector sides, one for the long side of the reflector and one for the short side. Made from Miro 95 hammered mirrors (95% reflection). The add-on reflectors are installed on the adjustable side (long) or front facing (short) reflectors.
