urban-gro’s lighting design and products help maximize the yields and profitability of new and existing cultivation facilities.
At urban-gro, we are committed to providing the most cost effective, efficient light source to the plant canopy by focusing on the cost of μmoles per photon delivered to the crop.
urban-gro supplies a large range of reflectors and fixtures. Each reflector has been developed to provide an optimum light distribution for cannabis crops depending on stage of growth and constraints within the building or greenhouse. Reflectors are used to ensure that the light penetrates deeper into the crop in the most efficient way possible. Many of our reflectors are designed with maintenance in mind— they can be cleaned and do not need to be replaced annually.
Our detailed light plans prove it. urban-gro prepares a complimentary light plan to ensure that light uniformity and light levels are adequate for your crop. As technologies change, proper planning is essential to ensure light levels are not compromised in such a way that may negatively affect plant yield.
There are several other technologies that claim efficiency and power savings, but as growers report, and our own expert lighting team has witnessed, they fail to produce the correct intensity and uniformity needed to maximize plant yield.
Our professionally engineered plans guarantee light levels measured in μmol.
We invite you to embrace a better way to grow— your cannabis, your business, and your bottom line.
Science Meets Finance
Cannabis is a crop like any other, but it has unique technical, financial and legal considerations.
Learning Best Practices
Those who will be the most successful cannabis growers need to find and align themselves with experienced professionals who can help them make decisions that take into consideration their particular set of challenges.

Science Meets Finance
It starts by understanding DLI (daily light integral) which is the amount of PAR received each day as a function of light intensity (instantaneous light: μmol·m-2·s-1) and duration (day). It is expressed as moles of light (mol) per square meter (m-2) per day (d-1), or: mol·m-2·d-1 (moles per day).
Greenhouse growers can use light meters to measure the number of light photons that accumulate in a square meter over a 24-hour period. In a greenhouse, values seldom exceed 25 mol∙m-2∙d-1 due to glazing, structure, shadowing. In a warehouse environment 100% of the light comes from lighting fixtures and can also be measured with a professional light meter.
The DLI concept is like a rain gauge. Just as a rain gauge collects the total rain in a particular location over a period of time, DLI MEASURES THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF PAR RECEIVED IN A DAY.
As the Cannabis crop price decreases, it’s the efficient growers that will be successful. This starts with ensuring your lighting system is optimized for maximum plant growth.
THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH URBAN-GRO
As the market expands and production facilities scale to match commercial production in line with other agricultural products, professional designed and proven lighting system are advantageous for higher efficiencies and maximum yields.
Reliable Products to Meet Your Needs
urban-gro offers a complete range of innovative fixtures, lamps, and reflectors for optimized light distribution in a variety of technologies including LED, High Pressure Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide (MH), Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH), and Hybrid systems. For each lighting solution, we provide a comprehensive light plan to ensure optimized crop growth through adequate light penetration and uniformity into the crop.
As technologies evolve, proper planning is essential to ensure light levels maximize plant yield. urban-gro’s customized lighting plans allow for the proper micromole output with the fewest fixtures possible, saving substantial energy and cost. Additionally, many of our fixtures do not require reflector replacement annually. Instead, the design of the fixture allows for easy cleaning and maintenance, returning the reflectivity to near-new year after year.
Installation and Inspection
All products we offer are UL, ETL or CSA listed to ensure our clients don’t have issues during the inspection process. Our installations are backed by a warranty supported by a Colorado-based service center. UL Listed and available in 240V, 277V, 347V and 400V.
