Shading screens

In general

For certain crops, solar protection is one of the most important aspects of an optimal and growable climate. When shut, the screening installation reflects the sunlight, while a the same time the open structure of the fabric sees to air exchange. This results in a cooler greenhouse climate on hot and sunny days. At night the screening installation helps on reducing heat radiation of the crop.

In cold climates, the shading screen is often combined with an energy screen. The closed structure of the energy screen saves extra energy and helps to maintain the right greenhouse climate.

A diffuse shading screen is the most recent development in the field of sun protection screening systems. With a diffuse fabric, a new element is introduced in greenhouse climate control. Limitation of the intensity of light irradiation helps the plants withstand hot and sunny days. Using a diffuse fabric provides your crop with more but less intense light. This prevents damage on the crops. The ‘extra light’ helps to get higher yields on cultivating pot or cut flowers.

Usage

Often used in a horizontal screen installation – up to three parallel screens- at:

  • Pot flowers like orchids and chrysantemums
  • For vegetables in tropical climates
  • Cut flowers
Specifications
  • Light transmission of 25 to 70%
  • Energy saving of 15 to 55%
  • Diffuse light
  • Stimulating crop growth
  • Less condensation
  • UV stable
  • Flame retardant

Advantages shading screens

  • Optimal light transmittance

    Depending on the choice of shading fabric, you can reach a light transmittance of 25 to 70%.

  • Climate control

    On hot days, a good shading screen creates a cool greenhouse climate. At night it helps reducing the heat radiation of the crop.
