Greenhouse Screens - Shade / Thermal
Redpath Phormium Screens
“Overhead shade and energy screens are a very effective method of accurate solar energy and thermal energy control. With shade protection the suns radiation can be reflected away from the crop, and with air flow evacuated by the greenhouses venting system to avoid overheating of plants. During the night it helps to retain heat, maintaining a steady temperature and saving energy. They are highly efficient when used within a heated greenhouse environment via the much reduced air space needed to be heated. The steadier temperature minimizes formation of dew on the crop, reducing the risk of fungal diseases.
Redpath screens are manufactured from high quality special aluminium strips, polyester strips and high strength polyester yarn with high UV resistance. In a Greenhouse situation where most covers contain light diffuses, the aluminium strips have an unparalleled effect on radiation reflection and thus heat reduction. The unique structure reduces condensation and allows them to be bundled to a small size for maximum available light.
Redpath can offer a tailor made greenhouse screen system for most designs of greenhouses and glasshouses, this includes the support systems, drive systems and long-life screening material.”
