Helping growers achieve quality and scale with expert support and industry-leading innovations

Rooted in a rich, agricultural heritage, Gavita has been a global leader in professional horticulture and indoor grow lighting for more than 30 years.

In that time, we’ve led the way to industry-defining solutions with nearly every new introduction, always striving to help growers optimize yield and quality. It’s why we were one of the first to introduce double-ended HPS light fixtures, which revolutionized results possible with indoor growing, and are now among the most popular on the market.

The latest example, the Gavita 1700e LED, is no different. This versatile LED combines serious power with real energy efficiency to help give growers a higher return on investment than ever before. With an impressive efficacy of 2.6 µmol s-1 per Watt, dimmability and eight passively cooled bars, the 1700e is the first Gavita fixture certified by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), proving it meets rigorous performance, efficiency and safety standards.

It also means potential for state and national rebates—cutting upfront equipment costs and enabling more growers to adopt LEDs inside their facilities.

Our goal with the 1700e is to drive cost savings, improve margins, and help growers leverage other industry innovations like vertical growing, all without sacrificing quality. It’s why the 1700e is IP66 wet-rated for complete protection from non-corrosive elements like dust and other particulates, and even powerful jets of water, for safe use in low rooms, over rolling benches, in tents, and in increasingly-popular vertical racks.

But perhaps the most important way we’re working to be a better partner for growers is through our commitment to customer service. As part of the Hawthorne Gardening Company family of brands, the Gavita team of lighting and horticultural experts can draw on decades of knowledge in both traditional and emerging markets to provide best-in-class support to cultivators. Being a part of this unparalleled resource means Gavita can help growers customize their environment to their crop, cultivation style and goals. With services like custom lighting layouts, our team can help growers choose setups and fixtures intended to optimize light intensity, uniformity and overall output. Through our unique mix of premium products like the 1700e, expert support and individualized lighting layouts, we’re committed to helping growers compete in an aggressive marketplace, now and into the future.
