UmbraTex Blackout

Short Summary


Special plants need special care in order to grow ideally. Therefore, greenhouses are equipped with special light regulating systems. For breeding the bulbs of tulips, daffodils or hyacinth as well as the breeding of chrysanthemum, artificial light is used. At the same time, a relatively high temperature is usually required. However, reaching and maintaining this temperature is particularly difficult in badly insulated greenhouses.



The innovative UmbraTex Blackout is able to stop incoming light and light pollution to the outside by more than 99 % – so, unnecessary wasting of energy can be prevented. Based on the project demand, you can choose from the colour combinations white/white, black/white and black/black.
