Aluminet Shade System for Imperial GreenhousesSproutwell
The Sproutwell Shade Systems are made from Aluminet, which is a special knitted silver screen made from metalised fibre. Aluminet does an amazing job at reflecting heat, whilst also being extremely durable.
Keeping the greenhouse cool is accomplished by obtaining a balance of shading, ventilation and humidity. Providing the proper amount of each is the secret to a cool and functional greenhouse.
Aluminet acts like a mirror, as its unique aluminised nature reflects unwanted sunlight and harmful radiant heat from the greenhouse during summer, whilst preserving heat inside the greenhouse during winter. The unique reflective properties of Aluminet also results in a more diffuse light passing through it compared to traditional black shade cloth. This results in an even distribution of light throughout the greenhouse, which can maximise plant growth rates and crop yields.
