Greenhouse shading agents

A suitable solution for every crop to make optimum use of the sun

Many crops cannot withstand full sunlight or high temperatures. Greenhouse shading agents and diffuse coatings offer a solution. Royal Brinkman provides a suitable solution for every crop to protect the crop against too much sunlight, by painting glass windows to block sunlight. For example, greenhouse shading paint can be applied to shade greenhouses, and protect the crop from too much sunlight. While diffuse coatings can spread the light evenly throughout the greenhouse, this ensures that a crop is not damaged by excessive light intensity without loss of light.

Greenhouse shading agents offer reflection

Greenhouse shading agents reduce the temperature inside the greenhouse by partially reflecting sunlight. This greatly diminishes peaks in the greenhouse temperature and allows for a more stable growing climate. In this way greenhouse shading agents offer full protection throughout the season and prevent light stress symptoms and damaging of fruit and crop caused by light burn.

Diffuse coatings offer transmission

In contrast to greenhouse shading agents, diffuse coatings are intended to let through as much light as possible. Instead of reflection coatings offer transmission. It scatters sunlight over a bigger/larger surface and by this it simultaneously ‘divides’ the radiant energy over a larger surface. By highly diffusing incoming sunlight up to three times more valuable photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) will reach the middle a bottom parts of the crop and eliminates shadow formation of the greenhouse construction. All this ensures a higher reception of light in the greenhouse which in turn leads to more and better growth of crop and fruit. In floriculture diffused light has proven to lead to more growth and in the cultivation of vegetable crops it has shown to increase production and at the same time improve fruit quality.

    D-fuse in cucumbers"The light penetration was better and the crop was significantly less stressed. As a result, it remains active longer and you get more production. We are very satisfied with this"

    Jan Reijm | D-Fuse in cucumber


    Q4-white in kalanchoe"It's important that we can do the whole season with one layer of shade paint. Removing it at the end of the season shouldn't cause any problems either. Q4 White meets those conditions very well."
