“Healthier and stronger crops thanks to diffuse light with the Ridder Light Diffusion Screen"
When daylight is distributed better and can penetrate further into the greenhouse, this benefits the quality and consistency of the crop. In addition, diffuse and indirect light reduces the risk of leaf scorching and plant stress. This maximizes crop health, resulting in higher yields.
Ridder Light-Diffusion Screens have been specially developed to distribute sunlight over the crop as efficiently as possible. In addition to better light distribution, the screen also ensures a milder climate in the greenhouse.
Many crops grown in a range of climates benefit from diffuse light. That’s why our diffusion screens come in two variants, one with an open structure and one with a closed structure. This enables growers in both warm and cold climates to provide the best light for their crops.
Energy savings of 47% when you use a light-diffusion screen.
The open diffuse screen provides an excellent cooling effect.
With better light distribution, valuable daylight can penetrate the greenhouse more effectively, so that every plant receives the same amount of light.
Reduced temperature fluctuations, which means less chance of condensation.
The Ridder Light Diffusion Screen literally gives your plants a place in the sun. Its unique structure, in combination with the light-diffusion strips, ensures the even distribution of light. In addition, the screen offers greater control over solar radiation and crop temperature, resulting in a better growing climate and yields. The standard RLD climate screens have a closed structure, which results in energy savings and less condensation because the crop cools down more gradually in the evening. Naturally, it is also available in fire-retardant version. The RLD screen is particularly popular as a stand-alone screen solution for growers of pot plants, bedding plants and flowers.
Do you need better light distribution and do you also want to ensure that your plants are adequately protected from sunlight during warmer periods? The open structure of the Ridder Light-Diffusion OPEN screen provides that little bit of extra sun protection and cooling, especially when combined with ventilation above the screen. By using this screen in a double-layer set-up, you can still save energy during colder periods. This screen is widely used by growers in warmer countries or for crops that require more cooling in the summer, such as phalaenopsis and freesia.

“Having run a potted plant nursery for over 11 years, I know from personal experience how important it is for growers to maintain the ideal climate in the greenhouse. This experience, combined with my knowledge of climate screens that I gained working for a screen installation firm, enable me to help growers, installers and greenhouse builders find a best-fit screen solution. Every grower has different climate needs, and it’s always very rewarding to be able to fulfil those needs together with my colleagues at Ridder. What I enjoy most when searching for the best climate solution is my one-on-one contact with our customers.”
