Thermo reflective shade netting

Over the past period, with high temperatures and strong sunlight, we have received a lot of demand for thermo-reflective shade netting. Since this is a relatively new product group, we would like to bring this to your attention again.

Thermo-reflective shade netting
Thermo reflective shade netting reflect the sunlight through the white color and thus ensure lower temperatures. Besides, the addition of a light diffuser ensures better light distribution around the plants and less sunburn. All this gives better photosynthesis and less evaporation during hot days and therefore a better growth of the plants.

Two variants
We have two variants in our range, Avoida LD and Hiemalia LD. They are both thermo-reflective screen meshes, but differ in material and application. We are happy 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 tape material and is available in different screening factors, namely 33% (Hiemalia LD45), 50% (Hiemalia LD78) and 56% (Hiemalia LD95). Hiemalia is available on request.

Avoida LD
Avoida LD is 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 different screening factors, namely 32% (Avoida LD98) and 46% (Avoida LD112) Avoida is currently limited in stock.

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
