Silver Reflective Shades
The most effective method of reducing the temperature within a glasshouse, without exception are Silver Reflective Shades. They will control heat and light levels within the glasshouse. The shades are silver to reflect the heat. They get rid of the heat before it gets inside and trapped by the glass, and reduce light intensity and therefore plant scorch.
The Shades can be Fixed or Retractable. They are fixed on the outside of the glasshouse, between the glasshouse ridge and gutter.
They are constructed from a commercial quality, polyolefin-based fabric, which is interwoven with thin aluminium strips to give 65% shading. It is extremely hard wearing and an excellent heat deflector in summer. We have shades that have worked problem free for 15 years.
Cedar shades are traditional outside blinds for greenhouses.
They are constructed from cedar strips held together with copper clips, which allow the blinds to be rolled up. All cedar shades will weather to a charming aged grey (like oak), with time.
Our cedar shades are handmade authentically in our workshops. They are beautiful, well crafted and complete the traditional look and functionality of a Victorian Kitchen Glasshouse. Sizes will vary depending on the make, shape and size of your greenhouse. Each commission will be measured, made in Suffolk & then fitted by skilled craftsmen on site. Prices vary according to size and shape.
