About Gavita

Gavita is the largest specialized horticultural lighting company in the world. We are active on all five continents with projects ranging from single fixtures to large greenhouses with well over 100,000 fixtures, serving the retail, research and professional horticultural market.


How it's made

We made a short video in our production facility in Aalsmeer to give you an idea how we produce thousands of fixtures each week.

Here, the pre-fabricated components are put together and the fixtures are tested and packaged for distribution all over the world.


What we do

Our roots are in horticulture, but since 2010 we have a strong focus on retail too.
We develop products for residential and small business use, but we also support projects in new markets.

Our products have become an industry standard. Often copied, but never surpassed, we keep setting the standard for professional products and services.

As a market leader, we constantly innovate, but we will never bring products to the market which are not tested and proven in real life scenarios.
This is why Gavita products are the gold standard in lighting with unsurpassed reliability, the lowest cost of ownership and the best return on investment.

Retail

Our focus on retail goes much further than just bringing products suitable for residential voltages. Our professional documentation, educational services, support and retailer services are aimed at providing an experience.

We go the extra mile in educating our retailers and end-users, enabling them to make informed decisions about lighting.

Whether it is in-store displays, digital interactive signage, instructional videos, support of your events, sales training or seminars: you can count on Gavita to help you become successful as a distributor, retailer or end user.

Projects

We support our retailers in large (commercial) projects. We offer project management, light calculations, drop shipments, consultancy and introduce possible partners. In horticulture our customers are used to doing direct business with Gavita.

We never lose touch with our retailers, who are always rewarded for their groundbreaking work in new markets. Whether they were involved in the project or not.

Some of our innovations

Miro aluminum reflectors

Miro® aluminum reflectors

Until 2002 reflectors were made of anodized aluminum. This material has a limited reflectance and is very sensitive to contamination and subsequent light losses.

With the introduction of the HR96 reflector made from Miro® aluminum, Gavita set new standards in efficiency, light uniformity and light maintenance.

Wieland connectiors

Wieland connectors

A greenhouse is a harsh environment for electrical equipment. Corrosive liquids, high humidity, dripping water, pesticides, sulphur and full sunlight exposure require sturdy and reliable electrical connections.

Gavita introduced Wieland RST connectors on their fixtures as an alternative to internal screw terminals in 2006. This set the standard for secure connections and ease of installation.

Plasma lighting

Gavita is the market leader in high-quality plasma lighting for horticulture. We have been pioneering the use of Light Emitting Plasma for high-quality lighting since 2009.

We provide full spectrum and supplemental plasma lighting for horticulture, special projects, indoor grow rooms and aquatics all over the world.

Customers include breeders, researchers and commercial growers.

240V double ended fixtures

240V double ended fixtures

In 2010, we introduced the first double ended HPS fixture for 240V. This started a grow revolution in hydroponics. Since then Gavita double ended fixtures have become the market standard.

Many growers nowadays even refer to the style of fixtures as “Gavitas”. This design has been copied by dozens of manufacturers. We have become the “Hoover” of hydroponics lighting solutions.

240V double ended fixtures

750W double ended HPS lamp and fixture

There is a huge gap between 600W and 1000W HPS fixtures. In many cases, a 600W lamp is not powerful enough, or by the sheer amount needed too expensive, while a 1000W lamp would be overkill. The 750W single ended lamps, however, were large and not very efficient.

We introduced the first efficient 750W double ended lamp in 2013.  This closed the gap between 600 and 1000W and provide a much better solution for many indoor facilities.

Typical applications for 750W lamps are vegetative rooms, combinations with plasma lighting, smaller rooms with lower intensity and rooms with a limited distance to the crop. 
Gavita was the first to introduce a 750W double ended lamp and fixture for horticulture, increasing the efficiency of single ended 750W fixtures by about 20-30%. They are now the standard in horticultural lighting for 750W systems. 
Gavita pioneered the use of double ended lamps in this industry. These professional lamps offer you the highest output and light maintenance in the market today. Backed by decades of horticultural experience, Gavita recommends these lamps for use in her professional fixtures in horticulture. 
Our DE lamps output 15-35% more PAR light than traditional single ended lamps and have a much better light maintenance, which means that you only have to change your lamps once a year. 
The double ended construction enables the arc tube to be in stable the center of your reflector, for optimal optical placement. No more sagging heavy lamps in your reflector that destroy the throw of your fixture.  The absence of a frame wire further increases the output and uniformity. 
The  narrow lamp reduces interference with reflected light from the reflector. It is nitrogen filled instead of vacuum, allowing the arc tube to be smaller while maintaining the correct arc tube temperature. You should not use our double ended lamps in direct air cooled fixtures, as they cool under the optimal temperature, reducing the output considerable. 
The smaller arc tube results in a higher light density than single ended lamps, improving the penetration of your crop.
Higher light output results in lower infra-red output, as energy in a lamp is converted to light and heat: The more light, the less heat is generated.

Always make sure that you run lamps at 100% for at least 100 hours to stabilize the lamps, before you dim or boost the lamps.
