BIOS Launches the Next Generation of Icarus™ LED Grow Lights and Expands its Portfolio of DLC Listed Fixtures

BIOS, a NASA spinoff and leader in engineering horticultural lighting built with the grower in mind, today announced its next generation of DLC certified BIOS Icarus LED Grow Lights.

With higher efficacy, industry leading uniformity and superior long-term performance, BIOS Icarus fixtures provide everything a grower needs to ensure successful production for years to come.  By attaining the DLC listing for these products, growers can rest assured they are purchasing the most reliable, energy efficient and safest products available. 

Commercial growers purchasing DLC certified grow lights receive the following benefits:

  • Qualification for state and local energy rebates and incentives
  • A full 5-year warranty
  • Third-party validated testing of performance and reliability

"DLC listed grow lights provide the grower with accurate third-party performance data, a sense of security and a menu of choices that a grower can trust." – Doug Oppedal, Owner, CEA Lighting Specialist with Doug Oppedal Consulting

What makes BIOS Icarus™ a game changer for commercial growers?

  • Cleanable glass lenses to ensure maximum light output and uniformity
  • IP66 wet rated to enable years of operation in harsh growing environments
  • BIOS RapidRack™ mounting system– Save up to 12hrs of installation time* with a tool free mounting system
    (
    *Time calculation based on installing 200 Icarus™ Li2 or LLi)

Sean Tegart, President and CEO of BIOS believes having a third-party validation through DLC benefits the market as a whole.  “BIOS strongly supports DLC and the service it is providing to the industry.  We are proud to offer a full portfolio of DLC listed products so growers are able to have the best data available when making lighting decisions.” According to Mr. Tegart, there are several lighting manufacturers who may be disingenuous in how they present their performance data.  “With a DLC listing, a grower can have confidence the data they are being given is what they will see in their facility” he says.
