Insectnetting in the ventilation windows, it's becoming more and more important for the modern horticulture. Due to more rules it is now a day very difficult to use all kind of crop protection products. Insectnetting will help you solve this problem.
Are all greenhouses suitbale for insectnetting
Almost all greenhouses are ready for installing insectnetting. Only the very old ones could maybe be a bit difficult. We install the well known accordion system. The netting of this system will fold very easily and will also keeps its shape when the windows are fully opened. For the Venlo greenhouses two systems are possible. The first one is the integrated netting system, with this system the greenhousebuilder integrates the aluminium profiles in to the ventilation windows. The netting itself will then be mounted after the greenhouse has been glazed. This system has got a very small light interception. The second system is very suitable for existing greenhouses. At our factory we manufacture the whole system, so this means the aluminium profiles together with the netting. Also known as insect-cassettes. For widespan greenhouses this is also a very good system to use.
What are the advantages of insectnetting
Exept keeping friendly bugs in and stopping intruders from coming in, there are some more advantages with insectnetting. There is the light that comes through the opened window with netting. This light is now becoming diffuse. You see more and more greenhouses glazed with diffuse glass. This glass has got a very good light-spreading, that benefits the growth of the crop. With insectnetting the climate in the greenhouse will also be more calm, no more hard blowing wind coming in. And what about all kind of dirt and leaves flying around. Insectnetting will also solve this problem.
