Phormium offers both diffuse and aluminum closed shading screens.
Closed diffuse screens like Phormium’s Clima+ shade the sunlight away in order to avoid burning of the top of the plants and make the light diffuse to a certain extent. This way, light is spread evenly over the crop resulting in higher and more constant crop yields over the complete area. This will create an agreeable climate on hot summer days. When closed during cold days or during the nights, it helps saving energy.
The aluminum PH and PhormiTex screens have outstanding energy saving capacities. In wintertime temperatures will drop, so energy saving is important. The aluminum tapes and the woven structure assure high insulation and will allow higher energy saving than diffuse screens.
All closed screens contain a special acrylic yarn that will attract condensation droplets on the downside of the screen and transport the moisture to the upper side of the screen where it will evaporate. Excess moisture is easily transported which has a positive influence on the crop. Thanks the network of acrylic yarn in the screen, humidity will be able to escape through the screen.
