Studies show that LED lighting can have a drastic effect on poultry behavior when installed in pullet and layer barns. By providing appropriate illumination, you can increase egg output, lower mortality rates, maximize production periods and improve overall animal welfare. Specific wavelengths of red lighting has been proven to stimulate the retinal photoreceptors responsible for various hormonal triggers that activate the reproduction processes and control a bird’s behavior.
G&G’s WPX and FPX series luminaires are engineered to maximize the benefits of using LED within pullet and laying barns by meeting the spectral and luminous requirements, while also withstanding the harsh environment agriculture presents.
These fixtures are IP68/69K rated for high pressure washdown and are permanently sealed against moisture and debris intrusion, while being corrosion resistant to withstand the exposure to ammonia and outgassing from manure that would be detrimental to many lighting products.
