ZAGO Manufacturing Co. has announced that it is providing ZAGO sustainable sealing screws for Sollum Technologies‘ Sollum Smart LED Lighting Solution. This is currently the only technology on the market that recreates, perfects, and modulates the full spectrum of the sun’s natural light, enabling producers to grow fruits and vegetables in greenhouses anywhere in the world, regardless of their native region.
ZAGO sealing screws seal the Sollum smart lighting fixture, protecting the sensors and components within it. The fasteners are engineered with a custom groove under the head that, when combined with a rubber O-ring and tightened, form a 360 ͦ leak-proof seal.
This seal prevents contaminants, including air, water, humidity, moisture, dirt, and dust from entering the fixture or exiting and leaking into the environment. ZAGO sealing screws are corrosion-resistant, reusable and pollutant-free.
“Collaborating with sustainable companies is exhilarating,” says Harvey Rottenstrich, lead engineer, president, and co-founder of ZAGO. “Especially when inventions benefit the health and well-being of people and planet.”
Sollum’s smart LED lighting solution features the cloud-based SUN as a Service platform, which serves as a command center for its full suite of grower services, including access to an expanding library of light recipes, the ability to create custom light recipes, multi-zone crop management, and real-time and remote lighting control from the computer.
Fixtures and sensors aggregate and compile the data collected in the greenhouse for processing and analysis, providing each grower with the ability to adapt, modify, and customize their lighting for produce-specific lighting criteria. The technology uses that data to compensate between ambient and target light, which results in significant energy savings.
“ZAGO’s sealing screws provide us with the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that we use components of the highest quality in manufacturing our technology,” says Sollum co-founder and CTO, François Roy-Moisan. “Not only that, it’s also great to work with a partner who shares our commitment to building a more sustainable future for all.”
