Greenhouse screen specialists Novavert recently completed the installation of a retractable protection system for German nursery Gaißmayer GmbH & Co. KG after being approached by grower Daniel Pfeiffer.
The system, using Novavert’s Heescher Shading Hanging System which is known as HS2, replaced a previous system, with the new one being stronger and better able to shed water. The structure was built by Rabensteiner GmbH (Schorndorf) and the installed by a crew from Wolfgang Block (Emsdetten).
“The major issue with the existing structure was that it was perfectly level, it was not built with a slope, structure-wise. That made it very hard to get rid of the rain”, Niclas Heescher of Novavert explained. “The old structure suffered too much from the combination of heavy rain load and winds.”
The new screen can be entirely opened or closed in just five minutes at the flick of a switch. “”Even with a horizontal structure and wire bed, HS² again solved a problem. On top of this, the grower is now using a screen that he preferred, because the widest range of materials that are available for HS² allows the grower to pick exactly the material he needs. The grower is not limited to choose from just a few materials,” added Mr Heescher.
