With so much action going on in the LED lighting realm, it is refreshing to see a product as novel as the Adjust-A-Wings for metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps. The premise is simple, two sheets of thin aluminium are gently folded by adjustment wires which change the angle of spread of the reflector. The Adjust-A-Wings can be kept wide open to reduce intensity and increase spread or they can be tightened to decrease the width of the reflector, making a thinner parabola with greater intensity over a smaller area. The Adjust-A-Wings ship in a flat box which should reduce shelf space at the store and shipping costs. Although the video below shows how to assemble the AAWs, we were really looking to see the reflector adjusted to show the change of intensity vs. spread. The Adjust-A-Wings kit comes with an adjustable halide socket so you can choose the position of the halide lamp’s inner envelope relative to the reflector for maximum efficiency. Adjust-A-Wings come in a medium and large size that retail for $155 and $205 respectively. The AAWs might be geared for the indoor grower but for the very large reef tanks that use high powered metal halides, this reflector could deliver some very welcome fine adjustments of intensity and spread.
