  • Capillary mats are often used in potted plant nurseries for watering the crop. The mats ensure that the potted plants are evenly watered from below, which contributes to good root development in the pot. The water does not flow away from the planter in this way, giving the plants a larger water buffer during sunny periods. The water capacity of the irrigation mat is the amount of water the mat can hold per square meter in liters. For the best cultivation results it is important that the irrigation mats are placed and used in the right way. It is important that the strips of the mats overlap each other by at least 5 and no more than 10 centimeters, so that each plant receives enough water. It is also important that before using the capillary mat, the mat is made completely wet with water with a low surface tension. This ensures that the water is absorbed well. Our specialists have also written a handy article for the correct use of the capillary mat
  • Pull-out canvas is used to remove the old crop from the greenhouse at the end of the season. The old crop is placed on the cloth, allowing the cloth to be pulled forward. Then the old crop can be shredded and disposed of.
  • Steam equipment is an important component for ground flows to cover the ground. By means of the steam equipment, hot air is supplied under the cloth or canvas. The steam equipment in our range has a long service life and has a minimum of 200 steam hours under normal use.
