Thermo-reflective shade nets
The last few years we have experienced extremely hot summers, resulting in high temperatures and sunburn in tunnels and under fencing halls. A solution for this are the thermo-reflective shade nets, which reflect the sunlight through the white color. Furthermore, by adding a light diffuser, there is a better light distribution around the plants and less sunburn. All this gives better photosynthesis and less evaporation during hot days and therefore better growth.

Advantages of thermo-reflective shade nets:

  • Provides lower temperatures because the white color reflects part of the infrared light
  • Better photosynthesis yield due to the lower temperatures
  • Less evaporation by the plant by regulating the temperature
  • Better photosynthesis because more PAR light is created by adding light diffuser to the strap fabric.
  • Better light scattering around the plants, so that the lower plant parts also receive light
  • Less trouble from sunburn due to the diffuse radiation
  • Reduction of vegetative damage caused by direct light
  • Higher polyphenols content of fruits and vegetables thus better antioxidant effect

Two variants, Hiemalia LD and Avoida LD
We have included two variants in our range, namely Avoida LD and Hiemalia LD. They are both thermo-reflective screen meshes, but differ in material and application. We would like to explain it to you:

Hiemalia LD
This material is used over foil tunnels and / or as a screen in a tunnel or greenhouse. Hiemalia is made of a strap fabric and is available in different screening factors  

Avoida LD
Avoida LD can be used to place over a screen hall or a tunnel without foil. It is made from a combination of stronger monofilament threads and tape material. This material is also available in various shading percentages.

If you would like to receive sample cards of this product or if you require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be pleased to tell you more about it.
