"Replace your screen cloth on time"

Growers often wait too long before replacing their screen cloth. They also notice this at Holland Scherming. It's obviously quite an investment. However, a timely change of the screen will bring many advantages, which are often noticeable within a very short time.

Higher energy savings
The main reason to change the screens on time is to save energy. Greenhouse horticulture is an innovative sector, and screen manufacturers continue to evolve as well. New screens therefore have higher energy-saving properties than the fabrics that were available 5-10 years ago.

Better light output
New screens are free of dirt and therefore more clear, ensuring a better light output when the screen is closed, which is especially important with energy screens. The screen can stay closed longer, which indirectly also benefits energy savings. For example, a grower recently noted how much difference a new screen can make: after measuring, he discovered that the new screen produced 40 PAR more light (of the required 80 PAR).

When using new screens, growers can also avoid penalties in connection with light emission. The screens Holland Scherming installs also comply with insurance standards for fire safety.
