These days, ‘experience’ seems to be the magic word in retail to entice consumers to visit your shop. Garden centres, for example, have undergone a complete metamorphosis in the past two decades, in which a great deal of attention is paid to the use of screening systems. Installing the right screen makes it possible to make subtle changes to the atmosphere in a garden centre. The timely maintenance or even renovation of screens is of the utmost importance for garden centres that want to take full advantage of this effect.
Full shopping cart
The role of the screen installation has become much more important in the garden center industry. The developments in fabrics in recent years have also made it possible to fine-tune the interior much more. A screen cloth with a light shade enhances the experience of spring. During the Christmas period, a screen that darkens again creates that magical December atmosphere. The result is the same in both cases: consumers who are happy in a garden center load the shopping cart just a bit more.
Save more energy
The ambiance, however, is only one of the aspects that make a screening system such an essential component of a garden centre’s technical equipment. Just like in any conventional production greenhouse, a screen also has another important function: to save energy. The results achieved by the new generation of screening fabric are better than ever. Modern screening fabric is also beneficial to the living products in a garden centre by ensuring a better and more uniform climate. And what about the visitors? More opportunities to regulate the climate in the greenhouse also contributes to their experience at the garden centre.
Reuse of existing parts
A critical assessment of your screen and its function from time to time is therefore no unnecessary luxury – all the more so because it does not necessarily have to result in a complete renewal. A simple renovation of your screening system is also possible, in which the retention of existing components that are still in good condition is an attractive option.
Renovation of screening fabric in garden centres
Holland Screening’s vast experience with garden centre screening systems has made the company equally at home in the field of renovation. Many entrepreneurs use the time from mid-January onwards to prepare their garden centre for spring. There is no better time than this to schedule a renovation, as the employees can easily take all the necessary safety and other measures to prevent shoppers from being inconvenienced by the work during this relatively quiet period.
The work can be done safely and efficiently using ultra-narrow elevated work platforms and telescopic booms, while red-and-white barrier tape will suffice to delineate the working area should this be necessary. In addition to replacing the fabric, attention is also paid to the technology, such as the drive components.
Costs of screen renovation for garden centres
Efficient working practices also mean that the cost of renovating the screen fabric in a garden centre is very low – particularly because this is an investment that will give your garden centre a contemporary and well-kept impression for at least the next ten years to come.
