4 Year | 6 Mil | Diffused Greenhouse Film

LUMINANCE® has been specially engineered to give you the results you need from a highly diffused greenhouse film.

  • Lowers greenhouse temperature by as much as 9°F when compared to standard film.
  • Produces higher-yielding plants with stronger than normal root systems.
  • Less demand for watering.
  •  Diffused greenhouse film inhibits fungus spore development for healthier plants.
  • Inhibits insect propagation.
  • Provides comfortable working conditions during harvest season.
  •  Greenhouse plastic film prolongs the growing season.
  • Allows for an earlier harvest-up to three weeks earlier harvests have been recorded.
  • Higher crop yields and higher first quality crop yields-there have been noted increases of 30%-40% in total crop yields, with a higher percentage in first quality crop yield of up to 85% for some crops.
  • Guarantees harvesting days-LUMINANCE® greenhouse poly film provides a cover from the weather to ensure rain won't delay harvesting.
  • Diffused light reaches plants from many different angles, helping prevent the plants from getting scorched.
  • Par light transmission remains the same.
  •  This greenhouse plastic cover is beneficial for raspberries and blackberries.

Get the Most out of Your Light Diffusing Film
• Reduce or eliminate overspray with pesticides containing chlorine, bromine, fluorine, or sulfur.
• Do not use foggers or smoke generators with any chemical containing chlorine, bromine, fluorine or sulfur.
• Avoid direct contact with PVC products in general, and especially PVC pipe or plasticized PVC tape.
• Avoid direct contact with oil-based paints or products containing petroleum distillate, e.g. wood preservatives.
• Do not substitute white paint for shade compounds designed for greenhouse film. Latex house paint may contain fungicides containing sulfur, halogens, etc.  If repeated or prolonged contact with any of the above is unavoidable due to required cultural practices, reduced film life may be inevitable. The greater the contact, the more affect it will have on the greenhouse plastic film. 

Diffusion reduces shadows and allows the plants to receive a more even distribution of light during the day. Although the intensity of light at any one point in time may be lower under a diffused film, the total light transmission is excellent and the plants may actually utilize more PAR light through the course of a day, with less stress. This is due to the more even distribution of light at crop level. By eliminating shadows and spreading available energy more evenly on the leaf surface, there is less stress on the top canopy of the plant and more photosynthesis occurring in the lower canopy.

The appearance of diffused greenhouse film is considerably different than standard polyethylene film. This is due to the diffusion (scattering) of light through the greenhouse plastic film. Plants utilize diffuse and parallel light, while our eyes “see” mostly parallel light. This causes a diffused greenhouse film to look dark and hazy compared to a “clear” film, even though the total light transmission remains the same.

Our Greenhouse Films are bee compatible. This feature provides an environment where natural bee pollination can occur in greenhouse vegetable crops. Pollination of greenhouse vegetable crops is more efficient with bee compatible films than with mechanical pollination. Bee compatible greenhouse films allow more of the UV spectrum to pass through the film. The visible light spectrum for bees extends into the violet and ultraviolet (UV) light region between 350–400 nanometers. This range of light is invisible to the human eye, but by allowing transmission of some of this UV light, the greenhouse will be a more comfortable environment for bees to navigate.  Expected greenhouse film life and typical properties of the film are not compromised with the addition of bee compatibility.
