More light without compromise with Svensson’s new Luxous 1147 FR screen

New Luxous 1147 FR, the most transparent energy screen ever from Svensson, provides two percent more light without losing out on energy saving and humidity transport capabilities. Achieve a better growth climate during the nearing cold seasons with a screen that can be closed for more hours during the day, leading to further energy savings. Two percent more light means earlier and more vegetable production when winter prices peak. Visit us at the Canadian Greenhouse Conference in booth 955 to learn more about this new and nearly invisible screen! >> Learn More
