Valoya’s LED grow lights are produced with the highest attention to quality, safety and performance during the design, manufacture and testing of all our luminaires. Our products are designed to meet and exceed the requirements of the latest international safety standards. We carefully select and review component suppliers, choosing our partners from the best, certified suppliers. In addition to being independently tested to ensure CE compliance by approved 3rd party approval bodies, our products are also independently approved to relevant UL/CSA standards for North America. Production is carried out in facilities approved according to the ISO9001 Quality Management System.
Every product goes through thorough operational testing and quality inspections at various production stages. Standard end-of-line safety testing includes HI-POT tests and Ground bonding tests to name a few. Additionally, all products are subjected to a burn-in test before delivery. This is designed to highlight and eliminate any possible early life quality issues.
We subject each new product design to continuous lifetime testing in our dedicated “eternal light decay” room. The room is climate controlled to ensure comparability of the data. Each luminaire is tested initially with 1000 hour intervals and after 6000 hours the test interval is after 5000 hours of operation.
The luminaires are measured in our own 2 m diameter Integrating Sphere for light output and spectral properties. Based on this data we can make justified assumptions on the use-life of our fixtures.
The quality of Valoya light results from continuous improvement. In 2018, we have implemented Dark Chamber for LEDs luminaires testing in addition to our existing Integrating Sphere, aiming to achieve more accurate results in light measurement.
The Dark Chamber is built with flexible vertical and horizontal axises, where luminaires can be measured for light intensity distribution. Data collected is used to serve multiple purposes, for example, to improve our light planning tool and for future product R&D.
