OVER 100 DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATERIAL FOR AGRICULTURAL AND INDUSTRIAL USE FROM FACTORIES AROUND THE WORLD. Uses for Shade Materials and Sun Screens The most popular use of our shade materials and sun screens: Plant protection shade system tree seedling Sun Screen Fish hatchery shade cover Propagation shading of young plants Sun Shade for low light crops such as foliage plants. Retain heat in greenhouses and nurseries Protect people from high solar load The Merits of LS Screens Temperature Control LS Screens always reflect the desired quality of solar radiation by using pure aluminum resulting in optimum cooling for every crop. Lower Energy Costs The aluminum coating on LS Screens reflect the maximum heating during cold periods resulting in appreciable energy savings. Humidity Control During the night, LS Screen ensures a higher crop temperature thus avoiding condensation on the crop. In particular, an LS Screen allows sufficient humidity to pass through to prevent condensation on the screen itself and to permit optimum air humidity to develop in the greenhouse for the crop. Lower Water Consumption LS Screens reduce evaporation both from the crop and from the soil. The result in a clear reduction in water consumption. Smaller Package The structure of LS Screen material is very supple so they fold very easily into a minimum sized package. In open state, virtually no light is obstructed either. The result id optimum crop growth. More Agreeable Working Climate An LS Screen creates a more agreeable working climate even during high temperatures. Labour productivity consequently improves. Protection Against Frost, Hail and Wind The various LS External Screens offer outdoor crops extra protection against extreme weather conditions such as bright sunlight, night frost in spring, hail, heavy and driving rain and wind. Very Favorable Price/Quality Ratio With the saving with LS Climate Screens provide in the way of energy and labour costs together with the improvements in crop quality and productivity the screens pay for themselves in less than two years. Greenhouses, Nurseries and Agricultural projects use a wide variety of shade and heat retention material. Qualities vary dramatically, as do uses, methods of installation, percentage of shade or degree of heat savings. Some materials are just laid over the field or installed on small wire frames. At the opposite extreme are two or three layers of crop toning, shade and heat retention systems now being used in controlled environment growing. A popular use is a structure designed as a crop protection system using wires, drives and pulleys to open and close the roofs and sides of the structure depending on the light, rain and other weather conditions. We have observed very inexpensive materials in Asia requiring two layers of material to attain 50% shade and only lasts 7 – 9 months. They are black and therefore can add to heat load. We have seen price as low as .020 cents USD per square foot ($20.00 per hundred square feet). But it is easy to see that this is not the actual installed cost. There are good quality sources in Asia, North and Central America as well as Europe. Black woven material in rolls and black knitted material are the least expensive. About 30% of our black material have been in black knitted fabric rather than woven. Sales of woven are increasing annually. The material stretches so does not require all the hemming and grommeting of woven material but under extreme conditions we have noticed some water holding capabilities under heavy rain conditions. Then strength of structure comes into play. To our clients purchasing sizeable quantities of black woven or knitted material we are happy to supply details for build your own structure, generally for systems over 50,000 square feet,as posts, wire support, twin benches and cable are readily available locally. These constructions are for permanent in place non opening and closing systems and are available in complete detail after contract signing. More complicated moveable roof systems are offered with complete materials or partial material so you can build your own structure using our shade/heat retention system accessories. Many of our clients buy fabric only in either bulk roll material, fabricated to order sheets or unfabricated material for hemming, sewing and grommeting locally. Our finest quality shade and heat retention material is produced by the LS Svensson firm of Sweden. They are pioneers in quality fabrics and are recognized worldwide for quality, durability, engineering assistance with worldwide testing always in process.
