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.

“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.
