Mounting the Screen

After pulling in the screen, remove the tension in the length direction of the screen, and leave several pockets with additional material every 50 meters (164 ft). Pull in the screen as wide as possible and let the screen rest for at least 24 hours before fastening it. This allows the screen to relax after being stretched during the pull-in.

During mounting, an extra 1% material should be evenly spread over the total length of the panel.

Example:

Truss length = 8 meters

Including the extra 1% of material, 8.08 meters is needed for installation
at each truss.

Other current sizes are shown in the table to the right

  Truss Length With 1% Extra
  3.20 m / 14.49 ft 3.23 m / 10.59 ft
  6.40 m / 20.99 ft 6.46 m / 21.19 ft
  8.00 m / 26.24 ft 8.08 m / 26.51 ft
  9.60 m / 31.5 ft 9.70 m / 31.82 ft
  12.80 m / 41.99 ft 2.93 m / 42.42 ft

Wire Usage

  • Svensson strongly advises against the use of steel wires at the screen bed. In recent years it has been proven that permanent contact and friction from steel wiring will create an abrasion detrimental to the screen life expectancy. High summer temperatures combined with the minimal flexibility of steel wires will cause damages to the screen and may shorten the lifespan of the screen.

  • We recommend that you start mounting from the middle of the lane and work towards each end.

  • If a Horticultural Textile is attached on one end of the screen, start mounting the screen from this end.

  • In order to assure the even distribution of the extra 1% of material at every truss, we recommend the following:

    First keep the screen flat from the first post to the next, then add the extra material, spread it over the truss and mount in. Repeat this at every post. See figure below
Stretch the screen out  between the posts. In this case 8 meters.
