Custom-made film, delivered quickly!

Tunnel film and greenhouse film come in all shapes and sizes. At all kinds of different suppliers. For the development of the crop it is very important which type of foil is chosen. This is because there are many different properties that can be applied to the film. Properties that improve the quality of the film. Examples are: thermicity, anti-condensation, anti-fog, anti-dust, UV-stability and light transmission.

The film range of FruitSecurity Holland consists of the most qualitative and high-quality films in the most common widths. The polyethylene film can be used for growing soft fruits such as: strawberries, blueberries, redcurrants, raspberries, etc. The strength of our polyethylene film is that it has various properties to influence the climate under the film in the right way. Influencing the climate is necessary to achieve a better end result.

Diamond® foil

FruitSecurity Holland supplies Diamond® foil in addition to the standard types. The Diamond® foil was developed for more intensive weather conditions. Additives are added to prevent light from shining directly onto the crops, for example. The film then creates a unique and high light diffusion, preventing sunburn and the "shadow" effect.

Photosynthetic efficiency is also increased with Diamond® film, as light diffusion allows light to reach the crop from all sides.

Lengths and widths

FruitSecurity Holland film is available in various thicknesses, widths and lengths. Thicknesses from 100 microns* to 200 microns, widths from 2.0 m to 14.5 m and lengths of any length from 50 m.

*1 micron is 0,001mm.

Light transmission

An important property of film is light transmission. Diffuse light reduces shadow and ensures that the plant receives a more evenly distributed light distribution throughout the day. Better light distribution allows the plant to get more light from the PAR range of the light spectrum, both for the upper leaves and the lower leaves, so more photosynthesis can take place. Maximum permeability of the PAR-range is then necessary.

Diffuse films distribute the light more evenly. This will considerably reduce the risk of UV stress and make the plant less susceptible to disease. Due to this light distribution, all fruits will be beautifully coloured because the light reaches the fruit in all positions.

UV stability

Crops can be damaged by excessive sunlight, resulting in crop burns. FruitSecurity Holland film therefore has a UV property that protects the crop and film from Ultraviolet light.

Ultraviolet light (UV) affects polyethylene film and can even damage the film. The life of the film therefore depends on its UV resistance. To protect the film and increase the UV resistance, UV stabilisers are added during the production process.

The UV resistance of the film depends on 4 factors:

  1. Foil thickness.
  2. Light transmission/ transparency.
  3. Type of raw material.
  4. The use of additives such as UV stabilisers.

These 4 factors protect the film against UV light.

Thermal property with EVA

The thermal property in the foil limits heat loss in the greenhouse. The greenhouse heats up during the day through thermal radiation (IR). Special properties that block IR radiation are incorporated in the FruitSecurity Holland film. This insulates the plant and creates a controlled temperature.

Thermal properties have been added to the tunnel foil or greenhouse foil so that the heat remains in the greenhouse and tunnel at night. The thermicity in the foil is obtained by adding EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate). EVA also improves the foil's elasticity. As a result, heat radiation (infrared radiation) is kept inside the tunnel or greenhouse very efficiently, this up to 85%.

Anti-Drip

Anti-Drip is very important to protect the crop from diseases caused by condensation. Waterdrops also work as a mirror and reflect the light. The Anti-Drip feature therefore ensures that the drops do not fall down onto the plants or that the drops remain 'stuck' to the film. But through the Anti-Drip function the drops slide down along the film.

Anti-dust adhesion

The Anti-Dust application is used to let dust and sand slide off the tunnels. Anti-dust also reduces the chance of algae growth on the foil. The result is longer light transmission during the service life. In addition, a smooth film surface makes film cleaning easier.

Anti-mist

In some parts of the world where there are large differences between day and night temperatures, mist can form on the film in the morning.

The anti-fog additive in FruitSecurity Holland film absorbs the fog into the film and the anti-condensation layer. The anti-condensation layer then lets the condensation run down as a layer of water.

UV-Open folie

A "UV-Open" film lets the UV radiation, which reaches the earth's surface, pass through unfiltered. 

Opening the UV range from 320nm is necessary to develop the Anthocyanin pigments (red) in bicoloured roses, nectarines and red-leaved lettuce. Anthocyanin pigment needs UV light to give colour. Anthocyanin gives the purple colour to certain types of lettuce and aubergines. A film with a UV filter causes problems with colouring in these crops. Therefore, a UV-open film must be used. FruitSecurity Holland checks which film is most suitable for each crop.

This photo shows the type of film that spreads the light. The light diffusion reduces the shadow of the tunnel construction and the crop itself. This enables the crop to make optimal use of the light for photosynthesis.

Light as nutrition

Just as people need food, plants need it too. The quality of the light is just as important as its quantity. The human eye has a peak sensitivity in the yellow-green area. Plants, on the other hand. Plants respond more effectively to red light and to blue light. Just as fat provides the most efficient calories for humans, red light provides the most efficient food for plants. All of this makes it extremely important which film is chosen for cultivation.
