ZAGO to Provide Sustainable Sealing Screws for Sollum's Smart LED Lighting Solutions


ZAGO Manufacturing has announced that it is providing ZAGO sustainable sealing screws for the Sollum Smart LED Lighting Solution by Sollum Technologies. The only technology 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.


Sollum's smart lighting solution produces positive societal outcomes: reduced consumption of water, energy, and chemicals in food production; reduced losses across the full supply chain, and the development of local and ethical agriculture globally. Benefits for commercial growers include significant energy savings, increased crop yield, diversification and annualization of production, and high-quality produce with a longer shelf life.


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.

Protecting Platform, Fixture & Sensors

ZAGO sealing screws seal the Sollum smart lighting fixture, protecting the sophisticated sensors and components within it. ZAGO sealing screws are engineered with a custom groove under the head that when combined with a rubber O-ring and tightened, form a 360 degrees 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.

Harvey Rottenstrich, Lead Engineer, President, and Co-Founder, ZAGO said that collaborating with sustainable companies is exhilarating especially when inventions benefit the health and well-being of people and the planet.

Sollum co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, François Roy-Moisan said that ZAGO's sealing screws provide them with the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that they use components of the highest quality in manufacturing their technology. He also said that it's also great to work with a partner who shares their commitment to building a more sustainable future for all.
