Anti Insect Screens

 

  • Skyrocketing costs
  • Concerns regarding groundwater contamination
  • OSHA/EPA/local chemical handling hassles
  • New “Worker Protection Standard Regulations

Given the increased problems and costs associated with pesticides, no modern greenhouse should be installed without the proper insect barrier.  Green-Tek’s Anti-Insect Screens, correctly installed, prevent insect penetration; yet provide maximum possible air flow, essential for optimal crop yields.

Screening intake vents will produce dramatic results, regardless of the cooling and ventilation system that you use.  However, all openings in the greenhouse, including service doors designed to have double screened entries, should be screened as well.

Several years of laboratory and field testing have resulted in patented screen structures that maximize air circulation, while keeping pest out.  Special equipment has been developed to ensure hole size accuracy using strong UV resistant yarns.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Made of high-tensile-strength round polyethylene filaments.
  • UV stabilized.
  • Lightweight and easy to install.
  • Transparent.
  • Unique screen structure results in maximum air circulation.
  • Strong weave – screen will keep its strength and stability even if mechanically punctured.
  • Easily cleaned with power sprayers by back flushing.

OptiNet 40  and  50 Mesh Dual Protection from Insect Penetration

 

Fewer pesticides are needed to significantly reduce the number of insects entering the greenhouse structure.  Dual protection significantly reduces the number of pests entering the structure, while maintaining adequate airflow and reducing costs.

 

OptiNet blocks penetration of insects in two ways :

  • Optic protection: Insects are repelled by the screen's optical additives .
  • Physical protection: The fine 40 or 50 mesh screen provides a second line of protection
