New Svensson innovation gives more light to plants

By launching the next generation of Harmony climate screens, Svensson is taking diffused light to the next level. Recent field tests show that plants in shade spots receive 32% more light with the new Harmony screen than with the classic Harmony version. Light is distributed more evenly to all plants in the greenhouse, resulting in faster growth, stronger plants and better growth consistency.

New generation of diffused light

Svensson developed Harmony for growers who want to avoid plant overheating and accelerate production. New Harmony further improves the way sunlight is scattered through the strips of the climate screens. You get all the benefits of diffused light in a greenhouse, but to an even greater degree.

More homogenous light

Two PAR light sensors were moved throughout identical sections in a greenhouse, one equipped with Harmony and the other with new Harmony*. The sensors continuously measured the light intensity plotting all the spots on a graph. It showed that both climate screens provide diffused light but the light is more homogenous with new Harmony. Structural shadows are significantly diminished with new Harmony, resulting in all plants receiving the same amount of light.

3 times less light level fluctuation

What you can expect

New Harmony scatters sunlight onto and into your crops more evenly resulting in healthier and more uniform crops that grow faster. The work environment is even more pleasant for you and your staff. New Harmony is available in open and closed versions, depending on whether you want to improve cooling or reduce heat loss, and in a wide range of shading levels.
