Over 30% More Light to Plants in Shade Spots

Recent trials show that plants in shade spots receive 32% more light with Svensson’s new Harmony screen than with the classic Harmony version.

Light is distributed more evenly to all plants in the greenhouse, resulting in faster growth, stronger plants and better growth consistency.

This more homogenous, diffuse light provided by the next generation Harmony screens results in more active leaves and better light usage, leading to better crop quality and higher yields.

Available in open and closed versions and in many shading levels, all flame retardant. >> Learn More
