More light with H2no®.

Luxous is the range name of Svensson’s most transparent energy screens. They provide the maximum amount of light. A Luxous screen with H2no technology provides even more light gain. H2no reduces the formation of condensation droplets. The water on the screen forms a thin transparent film with anti-reflection properties allowing all of the light to actively reach your crop.
