SunMax® Venlo mechanism: a 30% compacter screen package
Van der Valk Horti Systems introduces the SunMax® concept. A
revolutionary combination of new technology which allows you,
the grower, to take a great stride forward in the search for more
light. This technology makes the screen package 30% smaller.
The SunMax® concept has been extensively examined by the
University of Wageningen and Plant Research International.
Normally, screens are mounted against the greenhouse frame. To
make this package as small as possible, Van der Valk Horti Systems originally developed the CLIP20-screen profile (only 2 cm wide!).
The SunMax® concept also uses the narrow CLIP20 screen profile.
It is mounted lower down, however, so most of the screen
can be folded up in the framework. By also lowering the pushpull
tube of the ventilation mechanism by 30%, the whole unit
becomes compacter and thus even ‘lighter’.
Van der Valk Horti Systems developed a modified screen profile
(lowered CLIP20-screen profile) and a modernised rail mechanism
for the SunMax® concept. In addition, a new truss clamp (suitable
for two screens on one wire bed) and a modernised plastic wire
guide block (prevents wire wear and tear) were developed for
the SunMax® concept. In addition, the widely used KLI-MAX®
Compact slip system was adjusted to match the new situation. For
the best possible result, the SunMax® concept requires relatively
small adjustments to the greenhouse structure.
In total, then, the
SunMax® concept is a comprehensive collection of new advances
that together produce a revolutionary breakthrough. A 30%
smaller screen package can definitely be called that.
