Boulderlamp MoonWalker LED Grow Light is Good for Plants but Bad for Bugs and Germs

Boulderlamp MoonWalker LED grow light is good for plants but bad for bugs and germs


Join the revolution with the MoonWalker LED grow light and witness remarkable plant growth in a bug-free, clean space. Introducing MoonWalker LED grow light, a game-changer for plant growth. Higher yields with less energy; keep bugs away, and kills germs meaning a healthy and clean environment for plants and workers tending the plants. Patented technology, the MoonWalker cycling beam is made of 405 nm and 395 nm UVA, and full-spectrum white light. Unlike UVB and UVC, the 405 nm and 395 nm are safe for human exposure and are known to deactivate pests and pathogens.

MoonWalker LED grow light can deliver a combined LED power of up to 1000W. The LED power for the cycling beam portion is up to 200W. At about 1 foot above the canopy with the cycling beam the light level can reach up to 2,400 PPFD (µMol/m2/S). Since the cycling beam moves to another location after a short interval, the high-intensity beam does not damage the top of the canopy while reaching the middle, bottom, and side of the canopy with higher intensity boosting photosynthesis and creating a hostile environment for pests and pathogens. 

Several research papers and journal articles have strongly validated the antimicrobial properties and stated applications of 405nm. Here are just a few examples:

(*1) “405-nm LED treatment could be used to effectively prevent and/or control with L. monocytogenes contamination along the entire food-processing chain, from production to consumption”. This was published in Frontier of Microbiology in August 2019.

(*2) LEDs Magazine, May 2021,“Antimicrobial visible LED light is confirmed to deactivate viruses including SARS-CoV-2 Multiple laboratory trials have documented that violet radiation around 405 nm can over time deactivate viruses, including the coronavirus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic”.

(*3) Photonics September 2021 issue, “visible light with a wavelength of about 405 nm exhibits an antimicrobial effect on bacteria and fungi (1)”. It concluded, “405 nm irradiation is capable of coronavirus inactivation”.
