To control flowering and production in day-length-sensitive plants such as chrysanthemums and medicinal crops, growers need a strict light-exclusion (or blackout) strategy.
Ridder Blackout Screens have a highly efficient blackout ratio of 99.9%. Despite this high degree of light exclusion, the screens still provide an unprecedented degree of control over the temperature and climate inside the greenhouse. The weave of the material means it has excellent moisture-regulating properties. Ridder Blackout Screens are also highly suitable for reducing energy consumption.
Ridder Blackout Screens hermetically seal the greenhouse from all daylight, giving the grower complete control over the flowering stages of the crop.
“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.” -Johan van Erven, Commercial Product Specialist Climate Screens.Contact us
