Crop delays caused by excessive hot or cold temperatures are virtually
eliminated when thermal screens are used along with your greenhouse cooling and
Heating bills go down and cooling systems are more efficient with the
installation of thermal screens.
Gintec's retractable thermal screen system allows growers to obtain climate
control all year. Winter heating bills can be reduced by as much as 50 percent
when screens are closed at night. Once the heat is in your structure, it will
stay longer with the presence of a properly equipped thermal screening system.
Thermal screening systems (shade, heat retention, or blackout curtains) reduce
heat loss by reducing the air volume needed to be heated, creating an attic in
the greenhouse for an insulative air barrier, and reducing the stratification
of heat energy up to the roof.
During the summer month's screens can be deployed over the crop, returning
temperatures back to an optimum growing range.
These cable drive systems are operated by electric drive units with reversing
control and built-in limit switches. They can be operated manually or by
computer. These systems come in a kit form with installation instructions for
installation by the grower.
