Optimum crops


Lettuce grower FromBoer is taking a major step forward with the construction of a new 7-hectare greenhouse in Dinteloord. Both the greenhouse concept and the screen installation are innovative. Whilst the lettuce is growing, the greenhouse is forbidden territory. PDI therefore supplied a sturdy installation (double screen), which requires little to no maintenance. The Slip-in system allows the screen cloths to be installed and replaced quickly and safely. There is also a safety device that immediately sounds an alert should anything go wrong with the screen.

Through its new greenhouse, FromBoer paves the way for increased production, maximum food safety, minimal energy and water consumption, minimal CO2 emissions and a better yield. The installation fits in perfectly with FromBoer’s growing methods. As soon as growing starts, the greenhouse is virtually inaccessible for service; according to the customer’s requirements, the installation supplied requires little to no maintenance.

We are happy that PDI is our partner for screen installations.
