A little bit about Orphek

Orphek is celebrating it's 10th birthday and it’s been quite some decade. Born in Brazil, home of the Amazon Rainforest, this country is considered to have the greatest biodiversity of any country on the planet and gave birth to our philosophy.

Orphek observed that lighting is one of the most important aspects of any aquarium, and one of the biggest challenges to aquarists, especially when growing corals. Whilst trying to simulate nature in a captive environment, we were not satisfied with the lighting solutions on the market at the time. We decided to use our experience as hobbyists and teamed up with marine biologists and engineers to develop a product range of our own, that could achieve this aim.

Orphek is a company that provides solutions for any kind of project. From Nano aquariums to spectacular Public Displays across the Globe, Orphek has produced a range of LED lighting solutions capable of delivering the perfect intensity, spectrum and efficiency to all shapes and sizes of aquaria.

By launching ground-breaking technologies, our company gained respect and recognition as a leader and innovator in Aquarium lighting technology. Some of our innovation highlights include:
  • The 1st to develop solutions to deliver useable light spectrum for depths over 15 meters.
  • The 1st to develop UV/violet LEDs in Reef Aquariums.
  • The 1st to provide wide spectrum red without using normal 660nm and 640nm LEDs.
  • The 1st company manufacturing its own wide spectrum blue LEDs.
  • The 1st and currently, only company, to make its own proprietary white UV LEDs and to use high Kelvin white LEDs.
  • The 1st company to make 100-watt matrix multicolour LED chips, customisable to any Kelvin temperature desired.
At Orphek we are passionate about helping our customers find the right lighting solution for their Aquariums. We are at the forefront of new technologies development, helping our customers to achieve thriving Reef Aquaria.
