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
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:
||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
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.
