How to order the correct length and width

Width
Our standard screen widths are designed to fit most greenhouse section widths:

Screen width meter/feet  Suitable for section width
3.35 m   /   11.0 ft 3.00–3.20* m   /   9.8–10.5 ft
4.30 m   /   14.1 ft 4.00 m   /   13.1 ft
4.70 m   /   15.4 ft 4.50 m    /   14.8 ft
5.30 m   /   17.4 ft 5.00 m   /   16.4 ft
5.70 m   /   18.7 ft 5.40 m    /   17.7 ft


*The 3.20 m/10.5 ft width requires a separate, fixed strip for proper closure of the screens
 

Length
A little extra length should be ordered so that the installed screen is long enough without being tensioned. We advise you to follow the guidelines below.

  Net greenhouse size         
          + 1,5 % overhang          
          = number of meters to order          


For all screen types: order at least 1.5% extra

Sufficient overhang is important for correct installation. Keep in mind when it comes to overhang it's easier to cut off extra material later than add extra. We recommend the following overhang sizes at different screen lengths:

Screen length  Size of overhang
     10-50 m   /   33-164 ft Min 0.70 m   /   Min 2.3 ft
     50-100 m   /   164-328 ft +/-1 m   /   +/- 3.28 ft
     > 100 m   /   >328 ft > 1 m    /   > 3.28 ft


Example:
A greenhouse with 6 trusses, truss length 8.00 m:
6 x 8.00 m = 48.00 m - (0.10 m + 0.10 m) = 47.80 m + 1.5% = 48.52 m.
Subtract 2 x 0.10 m because end wires are usually 0.1 0 m from the gable.Overhang 2 x 0.7 m. Total order length: 49.95 m.
