Greenhouse Plastic Poly Covers

HORTICRAFT® brand of greenhouse plastic film is unique to Monbulk Rural Enterprises, drawing from the vast experience of our single source supplier, Plastika Kritis®. Using their technology to develop HORTICRAFT® Greenhouse Plastic Film for Australian conditions and with the growers in mind. HORTICRAFT® Greenhouse Plastic Film is up to 40% stronger than most other films on the market in Australia

Our industry experience and the experience of our supplier has learnt that it is necessary to add to the polymer mass a UV-stabilisers, there is a fine line of strength versus safe guarding against damaging sun-radiation. Our HORTICRAFT® greenhouse plastic films contain 15-30% more UV stabilisers than films of other suppliers and this is one reason why our customers say our films last longer than we prescribe

Another important feature of HORTICRAFT® greenhouse plastic films is the special anti-oxidant package that protects the films during production, storage and exposure on the greenhouse, especially at the points of contact with the structure

A question often raised, is the effect of thickness on the duration of the film. Experience shows that a minimum thickness is certainly needed, however the most important factor for long duration is not the thickness but the kind and amount of UV stabilisers. Thickness also adds to the weight when installing and does not always equate to stronger

Medium Diffusion Anti Drip UV Plastic Film (150µm & 180µm)

3.75m wide 150µm AD P3-UV2994AD-375 ‘HORTICRAFT®’ Anti-Drip Greenhouse Plastic Film contains a special additive which reduces the effect of individual droplets dripping onto plants and foliage instead turning them into a continuous thin layer of water that runs down the sides of the greenhouse roof and walls.

There is NO warranty on the long-term effect of the anti-drip, as it reduces it’s effectiveness over time.

BIRDCRAFT 28gsm Diamond Drape Over Bird Net is available in bales of 300m long, either in black* or white, with a knitted diamond mesh profile. Birdcraft 28gsm Diamond Drape Over Bird Netis designed to protect crops from birds.* Subject to availability and MOQ’s

Materials

Yarn UV Stabilised HDPE Construction Monofilament Pattern Twin Lock-Stitch Knitted Temperature range -30°C to 75°C

UV Warranty Pro rata 10 years

Durability

Australia has a very demanding climate and environmental conditions, due the combination of high solar-radiation, high temperature and strong winds. This prompts extending the life-span of bird netting is an important and crucial feature which Monbulk Rural Enterprises’ Drape Over Bird Net combats. Our drape over bird net is manufactured with Hindered Amine Light Stabilisers (HALS) additives, otherwise known as UV stabilisers. It’s important that these HALS are added at a correct time during the thread extruding process, as well as at the correct ratio, so not to compromise the thread strength. Monbulk Rural Enterprises are in direct contact with our Korean manufacturer, ensuring these features are met.

Strength

The viticulture industry has long been given the false impression that increased net weight relates to increased strength. This is only partially true, as the need for quality virgin high density polyethylene monofilament and correct ratio HALS (as stated above).

Properties

Nominal Fabric Mass 28gsm ± 2gsm

Usage

Designed for drape over protection

Can be pegged or weighted down during windy conditions

Natural movement of the bird net can deter birds

Contact with chemicals and/or pesticides that contain sulphur, halogens or highly acidic substances may reduce the service life of the bird net and may void the warranty*

*Condition report to be carried out by authorised Monbulk Rural Enterprises representative, unless expressly permitted by Monbulk Rural Enterprises.

Colour

Generally white is the most common and preferred colour, as the shade factor is approximately 6%, compared to 9% for black. Therefore, white provide improved growth and photosynthesis active radiation (PAR), resulting in improved brix levels in the fruit, compared to 9% for black.

Other Features

Our drape over bird net has reinforced salvage's, providing easier handling on installation and retrieval. A coloured centre line provides the correct alignment and row centering installing.

Commercial grade Australasian monofilament shadecloth. A wide variety of colours, percentages, fixing & attachment accessories. Accurate and consistent shading levels critical to successful growing. We also stock light weight materials for temporary shade cover that can be thrown over greenhouses during summer months as a UV burn and heat reduction screen shade material

* Covers made to order in white, black, beige, green and many other colours

* Available in various blockout transmission percentage 

Handyscreen® is designed for installation over Tunnel Houses to reduce stress on plants by lowering temperatures within the Tunnel House, in addition to protecting the polyethylene skin or Greenhouse plastic from UV degradation. Handyscreen® eliminates the need for painting or whitewash of greenhouses and promotes even light distribution to encourage and enhance plant growth. Handyscreen® can easily be removed and stored for use the following season.

*Available in White only

*Manufactured in two densities so that the grower can select the most suitable shading for their particular production cropping requirements.

Contact one of our friendly staff for further information

Horticulturally, shadecloth has two (2) main specifications, light transmission and UVR block (or block out) that determines the successful growth of plants, foliage, flowers, and crops. Determining the balance is usually characterised by, where and what is being grown.

UVR Block

The percentage of Ultra-Violet Radiation, of wavelengths between 290nm and 400nm (see diagram), that is NOT being transmitted through the shadecloth. 

Light Transmission or PAR Transmission

Simply put, the amount of light transmitted passing through the shadecloth. Technically, Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) is effectively the proportion of visible light (see diagram) passing through the shadecloth in the range of 400nm to 770nm. It is a measure of how much effective light would reach plants shaded by the cloth. 

Cover Factor

A measure of percentage area of the shadecloth covered by the yarns and fibres. This percentage is usually close to the UVR Block figure. 

Shade Factor (Shade Co-efficient)

The percentage of ultra violet and visible light, i.e. radiation of wavelengths between 290nm and 770nm (see diagram) NOT transmitted through the shadecloth.

Colour Range

Shadecloth Material comes in various colours. Black, White, Green, Beige being the most popular for growers dependant on the type of crop they are growing and conditions required. We also have a wide range of various other colours, in various blockouts & light transmission levels.

Handyscreen® is a light weight knitted polymer fabric, designed for covering plastic film hot houses an green houses and other ultra-light duty shade applications. It is a reuseable cover, capable of lasting many years and is more convenient to use that other shading options such as whitewash which is messy, difficult to apply evenly, and easily rubs off after rain, requiring regular re-application.

Material

- High density polyethylene (HDPE) UV stablised

- Tape Yarn

- Lock-stitch knitted

- White

Benefits

- Eliminates the need for painting hot houses or green houses to reduce heat

- Available in two shade factors, light (50%) and medium (70%), providing growers with a choice most suitable for their particular production requirements

- Promotes even light distribution, enhances growth

- Open Knit construction offers an optimum blend of shade and photosynthetically active light

- Protection from damaging UV rays

- Wind and Hai protection for Poly Cover Greenhouse plastic

- Easily installed

- Re-Usable over and over again

- Extra insulation for heated tunnel houses

Windbreak cloth allows some of the wind to pass through preventing a turbulent zone being created and the protected zone. It comes factory manufactured eyelets in the salvage, providing easy installation.

Windbreak is available in various widths 1.83m & 3.66m and comes in 50m rolls.
