TLS 18 HPS & Hybrid Lighting Rigs

The TLS 18 comes with 18 Hortilux grow lights and covers an area of 120 square meters at 320 μmol.

Together with Hortilux, TLS has made all new Turfpal rigs capable of running both HPS and LED light fixtures. Our new Hortilux LED fixtures replaces the HPS lamps one for one and they are delivered with the unique TLS lighting spectrum tailored for your pitch. The LED fixtures are twice as effective as the HPS lamps, saving 50% on energy consumption.

TLS 18 Lighting Rigs
By combining LED and HPS fixtures on the same rig there is no need for fitting infrared heaters for the cold season. Existing TLS 18 rigs can be upgraded to LED rigs simply by replacing a selected number of HPS lights with LED lights.

The lightweight aluminium construction makes the rig user friendly and easy to move in and out of sporting venues. The unique design of the TLS 18 makes it perfect for aiding the recovery of smaller areas such as goal mouths and warm up areas.

The TLS 18 comes with two alternative operational systems. One is our new system that connects to our web based Turfpal turf management software enabling remote operation of the rigs using the Turfpal app. The second alternative is a basic and lower cost system where the rig is operated from a local control panel, inclusive of a timer module and on/off switches.
