Light Diffusion Shade and Energy Saving Screens

Harmony is a diffused flame retardant all white polyester screen bringing more light to the plants from all directions, stimulating growth. During the night it helps retain the heat, maintaining a steady temperature and saving energy. The steadier temperatures minimises the dew on the crop, reducing the risk of fungal disease.

Solar Reflection and Energy Saving Screens

XLS FIREBREAK screens provide a prescribed level of shading by reflecting unwanted solar energy away from the crop. When closed at night, the screens trap heat beneath. Energy savings increase as aluminium content increases.

Light Diffusion Shade Screens

Harmony F is a flame retardant all white polyester screen with an open structure for enhanced light diffusion and shading.

On warm days, the excess heat can escape whilst bringing more light to the plants from all directions, stimulating greater growth.

At night it helps reduce the heat loss, minimising the formation of dew and the risk of fungal diseases.

In cool climates it is often combined with an energy saving screen at night, giving the grower a Variable Screening System.

Solar Reflection Screens

XLS F FIREBREAK screens are necessary when too high greenhouse temperatures exist and maximum ventilation is desired. Hot air easily flows through the screen between the reflective aluminium strips. Closing the screen at night will elevate leaf temperatures by reflection radiation back toward the plants, inhibiting undesirable leaf

condensation.

Energy Saving Screens


Purpose:
 Energy savings, air humidity control.

SLS 10 ULTRA PLUS and XLS 10 FIREBREAK transparent screens are designed to retain the maximum amount of heat with a minimal loss of light. These screens are ideal for vegetable production in colder climates. The SLS 10 ULTRA PLUS screen contains light diffusing films promoting better light distribution and even leaf temperatures. The XLS 10 FIREBREAK screen is clear and saves more energy. The XLS Blackout FIREBREAK screen is a fully aluminium screen for maximum night time heat retention.

Flame Retardant Screens

REVOLUX flame retardant screens deliver the same climate improvements as above, with added fire security. REVOLUX screens are typically required to meet building code standards for garden centres, production greenhouses, institutions and some commercial structures. XLS REVOLUX screens are suited for sliding and hanging systems whereas ILS REVOLUX screens are available for rolling applications.

Outside Screens

Screens closing

The OLS range of Svensson® screens is produced for shading greenhouses from the outside and protects against sun radiation, frost, hail, downpour and wind.

OLS ABRI external screens are suitable to protect outdoor crops against certain adverse weather conditions such as strong sunshine, night frost, hail, downpour and wind. The strong monofilament yarns used guarantee a long useful life, even under severe weather conditions.

The screen is reinforced in such a way that one can hang it onto polyester or steel wires with special synthetic suspension hooks. In this way the screen can be completely opened and closed so that it is possible to react adequately to changing weather conditions.

OLS ABRI screens consist of aluminium strips with open spaces in between these strips. The strips that reflect unwanted sun radiation and the open structure allow for sufficient airflow. The overall result of this is a considerable reduction of daytime crop temperature. As the aluminium strips reduce heat radiation from escaping the greenhouse, OLS ABRI screens decrease the heat loss from the crop during night-time: As the plant temperature will stay higher, the night frost damage will be limited to a minimum.

FLS Abri

Retractable Roof Shadehouses

FLS Abri is a new range of all polyester screen for outside use as an alternative to shadecloth. As with the OLS range, it has the abri internal strips for re-enforcement to take the hooks so the screen hangs under the bed, reducing wear and maximising the curtain life.

As with the OLS range, these fabrics optimise your control over the climate so you can open the screen on winter days, mornings, afternoons and cloudy  and rainy days giving you up to a 40% increase in growth and greatly improved plant quality.

Outside Screens for Domestic Use

Solar Reflection Screens

Closeup view of OLS screen

OLS screens are designed to withstand and protect against elements of direct outdoor exposure including harsh sun, wind, hail and heavy downpours. OLS screens are commonly used in a fixed manner or in rolling applications over verandahs, patios and courtyards.

OLS screens consist of aluminium strips with open spaces in between these strips. The strips reflect unwanted sun radiation and the open structure allows for sufficient airflow.

The overall result of this is a considerable reduction of temperature under the covered area and you can feel up to 12°C cooler. At night-time as the aluminium strips reduce heat radiation from the area, OLS screens decrease the heat loss and you will feel up to 6°C warmer.

The same process occurs with all our outside living areas and everybody under these screens feel the immediate cooling effect and say “What a great product”.
