The newest technology in High Pressure Sodium are the Double Ended HPS bulbs. These bulbs degrade slower than traditional single ended HPS bulbs. In fact, after 10,000 hours double ended lamps will still output approximately 90% of their original intensity. Double Ended HPS bulbs are also more stable than traditional single ended HPS bulbs, and this allows them to have a 10% increase in light intensity and PAR output over traditional single ended HPS bulbs. Lastly, Double Ended HPS bulbs emit more UV and IR light than traditional single ended HPS bulbs, increasing the potency and essential oils of oil producing plants.
Designed for double ended bulbs, a Double-Ended Lamp Reflector will provide your longer lasting DE HPS bulbs with plenty of reflectivity. These come in many variations from open-wing designs to air-cooled and built-in ballast models as well.
