Description

Designed for specificaly for Polytunnel Covers, Lumisol Clear polythene allows around 2% more light to enter your polytunnel than with a diffused polythene cover. This extra light brings extra heat which can be a benefit during the early and late months of the growing season. Especially popular in northern and western regions where lower light levels naturally occur. 

Visqueen’s new generation polythene films combine all the benefits of previous films (great thermic and light transmission properties), but unlike normal greenhouse films (and glass) which prevent short wavelength UV light (UVB) from reaching your crop, this ‘UV open’ film allows UVB to enter the greenhouse.

This can have many benefits for both edible and ornamental crops, such as enhancing the fragrance, taste, colour, earlier harvesting and longer post-harvest shelf life. In addition, ‘UV open’ films pro mote plant anti-oxidants which are good for health & encourage stronger plants. This greatly benefits plant raisers and young plant growers as stronger plants can be easier to plant out thus saving time and money.

Our polytunnel covers are 180 micron (720g) thickness, and have a 5 season incremental guarantee against UV degradation. However, it’s not unusual for our covers to be replaced after 10-12 years (or even longer).

  • Light transmission: 88-92%
  • Thickness: 720g (180 micron)
  • Thermic effect: 80-85%
  • Diffusion:  30-35%
