Shade Screens

Shade screens

Shade screens have become one of the most important tools in the modern grower's armoury. By intelligent use of the shade screen the grower is able to manipulate both light and/or humidity to maintain the ideal greenhouse climate. This not only ensures maximum production and quality, but also creates a more pleasant working environment for staff.

Deployment of the screen at night or in low light conditions can also contribute significantly to energy saving.

With 20 years experience of installing shade screens in greenhouses of every shape and size, and a clear focus on quality, CMW are very reliable partners when the time comes to choose a suitable screen.

CMW's in-house project management, installation and maintenance crew uses the latest all terrain equipment and scissor lifts to ensure that every project runs smoothly and on time, with minimum disruption to the everyday nursery operation.

After sales service

CMW has its own experienced UK based installation and service team.

You can be sure of prompt and efficient attention for routine maintenance, breakdown or emergency - in the event of storm damage or vandalism, for example. Routine preventative maintenance can be tailored to the customer's choice, with service intervals to suit the type of screen and extent of duty.

Experience shows that routine maintenance will increase the life span of your screen. After all, it makes just as sense to look after your investment in a well engineered screen as it does with other essential mechanical equipment.
