More growers opt to replace old screens

Save even more energy and transmit more light

- Abbey View Nurseries, Waltham Abbey

Like most leading salad growers, Abbey View installed their screens some time ago. After years of constant use, they had become very tired but, like many growers, nursery manager Alan Richardson hesitated for a while before deciding that it was time to renew the system. 'Actually, this should have been done earlier' says Alan, 'but agreeing on the best time to replace an existing asset is never easy'. However, once the decision was made, everything went very smoothly. 'The CMW crew were the best screen contractors we've ever had on site'.
Modern equipment and experienced fitters make for a very efficient refurbishment process. Using a new monofil deployment machine, over 16,000 square metres of monofil were replaced in only 3 days!

Glasshouses come in all shapes and sizes, and by no means all have tall stanchions, wide bays and unfettered access.
Ravensworth Nurseries grow a mixture of pot and bedding, mostly on benches, and replacing old screens over a growing crop presented several challenges - not only to carry out the work in a timely manner but also to avoid disruption to day to day operations on the nursery and above all to ensure no damage to the crop.

Co-owner Fiona Dean opted for the Ridder flame retardant material RLD 60FR which provides 60% shade under direct sunlight, 65% shade under diffused light and 48% energy saving. She says 'The refit went very well with very little disruption to our normal operation and no crop damage at all. The new screen is a big improvement on what we had before in every respect.'
