Soft fruit are some of the most complex crops to design the perfect crop cover for but with research at least a decade ahead of the competition and over twenty years commercial experience LIGHTWORKS have got it covered with our SUPER SOFT FRUIT FILM!
One size never, ever fits all and that’s especially true when designing the perfect light environment to deliver higher yields and sumptuous soft fruit crops with truly amazing quality.
Soft fruit are some of our favourite crops. We've been working with our research and grower partners for over decade at locations across Turkey and as diverse as the USA and Western Australia on developing covers that ensure our customers get the absolute best out of their crop
The results of all that work is our SUPER SOFT FRUIT FILM.
Earlier picking, longer harvest periods and yields, higher marketable class A fruit and unrivalled control over quality are just some of benefits of having a cover designed specifically around your soft fruit crops needs. Fruit weight is increased, the firmness of fruit is improved as is colour, and taste.
Of course the best possible temperature management is vital for reducing crop heat and cold stress and ensuring maximum yields. That’s why at LIGHTWORKS we design the temperature management system of your SUPER SOFT FRUIT FILM to meet the needs of the exact location which will be different across the country.
DIFFUSION, JUST HOW YOUR CROP NEEDS IT.
Most manufacturers will tell you that the higher the rate of diffusion the better and that one size fits all but how can that be the case both for growers in northern Scotland and Southen Spain? Of course it’s not. Through cutting edge science and exhaustive commercial trials we’ve developed unique models which predict just how much diffusion you need and we then manufacture your film accordingly. However if you just want the highest level possible we can provide covers with up 75%.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL. YOUR WAY.
You won’t be surprised to learn we tailor the amount of thermicity to your exact needs based on the crop your growing at the location you’re growing it in. We do this using our unique climate models, multilayer extruding technology and advanced thermic additives. Together they allow us to smooth day and night temperature changes so as to better protect your crop, reduce both crop stress and heating costs.
ANTI-DRIP & ANTI MIST. PERFECTLY IN BALANCE.
All our products offer the option of built-in anti-drip properties which significantly help reduce the risk of crop fungal diseases. Providing the film is installed correctly, water will condense uniformly across the films surface rather than as droplets and both light loss and the risk of water falling on to the crop below is much reduced. All our anti-drip films are also manufactured with a perfectly balanced anti-mist system which work effectively together to optimise the growing environment.
TUNNEL COVER OR GREENHOUSE COVER. HIGHLY RESISTANT TO AGRO-CHEMICALS.
SUPER STRAWBERRY FILM can be designed and manufactured for you either as a greenhouse cover or as a tunnel cover. It is also highly resistant to sulphur and other, widely used, agrochemicals.
UV STABILISATION. FOR EVERY LOCATION.
Some manufacturers produce their films with just enough UV stabilizer for the location where they'll be used. We have a somewhat different philosophy. We believe each and every crop is worth protecting for as long as we can. That's why we dose all our products with a UV stabilization system designed to last at least four years at Southern European latitudes using our very own blend developed over three decades. We never take risks with your crop.
THE ULTIMATE SPECIALIST FOR EVERY SOFT FRUIT CROP AND FOR EVERY OCCASION.
Our SUPER STRAWBERRY FILM sets the new standard in soft fruit crop cover technology. It's been developed from the ground up with growers to deliver the unparalleled yields and quality. There really is no other product quite like it.
AVAILABLE TO YOUR VERY OWN SPECIFICATION
Just as long as your order totals over 1 ton we'll happily produce your film to your own specific size and thickness requirements.
