agree  Harry Borsje: definitely something like this; *Voll* refers to the wavelength spectrum (therefore a metallic reflector)

full-length reflector


Explanation:
I hope, it helps you.

I found it on a page in double version, German and English.

"Der eingebaute Vollreflektor sorgt für eine weitere Verdoppelung..."

"The built-in full-length reflector doubles the light volume..."

Look at the links below!

Good luck!

high-reflector


Explanation:
"Voll" most certainly refers to the spectrum covered by the reflector - typically a layer of silver. A "high-reflector" coating is one which reflects over 99% of incident light. See the Wikipedia entry below for further details.
