What are grow light mover rails?
These rails, or tracks, are used as part of a grow light mover system, along with a motor.
Grow light movers are an essential part of any serious indoor garden or greenhouse. Rail lengths vary, but typically come in 3-6' lengths.
When installed, the grow lights will slowly move along the rail, distributing light evenly along plant canopies. Once the light reaches one end, it reverses and comes back the other direction.
Why do I need to move my grow lights?
There are a number of reasons why growers should move the lights in their grow room. First and foremost, moving lights along a rail system allows for 30% more light coverage, ensuring each leaf receives light from a number of angles.
Moving your lights also diminishes hot spots, which are areas where heat builds up from the grow light. When the light is moved, this heat is distributed evenly along the track instead of concentrating in one area.
Using grow light movers also eliminates the need for more fixtures, and helps growers manage their space more efficiently.
