Products & Engineering Services

Technologically advanced, liquid-cooled lighting systems (lights with integrated cooling) for indoor horticulture and pharmaceutical growth. (Patent US9857068)

Our liquid cooled lighting systems were designed for indoor horticulture and pharmaceutical growth. Our technology is truly transformative designed to optimize energy efficiency and maximize yield.

Optimized spectrum and uniform light distribution allow for faster and more consistent plant growth. Our LED grow lights enable growers to control specific spectral combinations to maximize plant quality and yield.

High energy efficiency cooling/dehumidification unit repurposes the reclaimed light heat for dehumidification and air conditioning. significantly reduce energy consumption. (Patent Pending)

Our cooling/dehumidification system is designed to capture the wasted heat from our liquid-cooled LED lights and use it for dehumidification and reheating purposes– reducing the cooling load. Our central facility control system optimizes operation conditions to maximize system efficiency.

The completely integrated system allows operators to monitor and control their system 24/7 onsite or remotely.

GS Thermal Solutions’ advanced central control and monitoring system give users real-time monitoring and control of their facility’s operations from a cloud-based platform.

The facility control system notifies specific personnel or users if any setting parameter goes out of range. This feature helps growers to minimize the risk while maximizing the productivity of the facility.

Engineering Services: With 40+ years in the design and successful maintenance of high-efficiency cooling systems, our team brings the field experience needed to make your operation a success.

GSTS offers integrated system design and engineering services to provide our growers with state-of-the-art systems that maximize production while maintaining optimum energy efficiency.
