Ecotech has announced the TIR Lenses for their Radion LED lights. For $30 per pair of lenses, you can increase your Radion's peak output by 45% with a simple DIY retrofit. We share Ecotech's official announcement after the jump.

Radion TIR Lens kits now available increasing peak output by up to 45%

Since their unveiling at Interzoo, you have been asking how you can get your hands on a TIR Lens upgrade for your Radion.

We are pleased to announce that  the TIR lens upgrade kits are now available!

What is TIR?
TIR stands for Total Internal Reflection. By redirecting more of each LED cluster’s output in a usable direction (in your tank), TIR lenses are able to boost peak PAR levels by up to 45% and total (average) PAR levels by up to 23% beneath the fixture without sacrificing spread[1] or consuming additional power.   

Put Your PAR Where Your Tank Is

As Promised…

While many make claims  - EcoTech delivers. The TIR lens  incorporates EcoTech’s ongoing commitment to innovation and improvement for the benefit of its customers. A modular upgrade for a truly modular fixture makes the Radion an ever brighter solution for aquarium lighting.

How Do I get Them?

TIR Lens kits (2x TIR lenses 2x wire ties) are available for $30 (MSRP) from your local fish store or from  EcoTech Marine’s part store.
