Aluminet is a type of aluminized shade fabric that has been specially treated to reflect heat and light. It is used for numerous purposes, including in the construction of tents, greenhouses, reflective ground covers, and more. This article discusses some of the most common reasons when using this awesome product.

Features and Advantage 

1. Aluminet Reflects Light:

Although light is essential for plant photosynthesis, too much light can inhibit plant growth. The Aluminet has the effect of a light-reflecting ray, which acts as a mirror to reflect light back into the air. Installing an Aluminet in a greenhouse can help to block out excessive light.

2. Aluminet Blocks Heat:

Aluminet is an effective heat blocker, reflecting heat and protecting plants from the sun.

Many studies have shown

The temperature in greenhouses can be reduced by around 4-8 degrees under the cover of Aluminet, reducing the likelihood of fruit and leaf burns and increasing plant yields.

3. Aluminet Is Durable

Aluminet clothes are produced by modern technology, which helps to save access materials and other chemicals added to ordinary clothes to be more durable. Although Aluminet clothes prices are generally high from other ordinary clothes, its durability and effectiveness help give the rightfulness of total investment. So, by buying a long-term Aluminet shade cloth, you can get a higher return on your costs. Aluminet shading rate can vary from 40% to almost 99%, which can prevent all light. The density of fabrics is measured by its UV prevention ability when the Aluminet shade clothes span time generally 4 years.

4. Aluminet Increases Thermal Insulation:

The aluminum foil netting not only provides shade but also acts as an insulator at night when the temperature is lower. Tests have shown that greenhouses with aluminum foil netting can be warmer than outside when the temperature drops at night. This protects the plants from freezing at night and has a protective effect on them. This plays a considerable role in the cultivation of many vegetables and flowers. It saves you energy and makes your plants healthier.

5. Aluminet Enhance Diffuse Reflection

Diffuse reflection means that light is evenly distributed into the environment when it hits a rougher surface, allowing plants to take full advantage of all the light and produce sufficient photosynthesis for plant growth. Aluminet shade screen is considered to have a good diffuse reflection effect, allowing the plants in the greenhouse to be fully bathed in sunlight and reducing the incidence of uneven sunlight exposure.

Aluminet helps protect greenhouses from various pests and animals, those birds who carry Vermes reduce the use of pests and chemicals. It helps the farmers increase good and healthy food, for example, reduce the damage of earth by reducing poison of chemicals.

Top Reason to Use Aluminet 

The Aluminet can be made in a very flexible way, it can be made with different shading rates depending on the requirements. The control of the shading rate can be very precise, as it can be made in different proportions of aluminum foil strips. Plastic white film or plastic transparent film can also be added to enhance the diffuse reflectance and transmittance of the foil mesh.

These controlled conditions are the reason why the environment inside the greenhouse can be controlled more precisely, helping plants to resist the harsh external environment and allowing the environment inside the greenhouse to always be controlled in a way that is suitable for plant growth. It can allow increasing export and income of farmers.
