Curtains: Dual Interior Energy/Shade Curtain Systems

Dual curtain systems are becoming very popular. These systems use two or more curtains with two different cloth characteristics.  By using cloths with differing shade percentages it gives the grower a combination of available light levels for different growing conditions based on the crop needs.  A shade cloth can be used during summer to cool, reducing plant stress and water consumption.  A recently developed “clear” cloth can be used to cover the crop during cold, sunny days for heat retention during the day.
