Novavert introduces new fire resistant screens and improved profiles for faster installation
One of the new improvements from Novavert is a revised version of their HS1 screen system with integrated cords on both sides for easier and faster screen installation. Together with a renewed aluminum profile, Novavert’s and all other brands of screens can now be connected to the profile even faster and more securely as the reinforcement ropes in the screens are sewn in with a special yarn combination.
Novavert's Niclas Heescher: "To connect our proven Keder-technology to the screen, we can use a total of up to four seams divided over different types and brands of yarn in order to be on the safe side. This is a sort of built-in security for free, but invaluable just in case one of the yarn suppliers has a problem. Other systems with a single thread leave you completely at the yarn producer's mercy and a tiny cause can have a devastating effect." As well as this, Novavert's aluminum profiles have been redesigned to be self-aligning. "The improved aluminum profile secures that the screens can no longer get stuck when they are pulled in. The profiles are self centering and always connected perfectly in line. The standard connector ensures that installers can not miss-align the profiles anymore, thus the required force to pull in drops drastically even in long installations >100m."
Just like many other screen installation manufacturers and installers, Novavert adapted its products to the trend of more convenient installation. "We have been doing this for a couple of years already, only now it's even more optimized. All of our series of screens can be pulled in the profiles by just attaching a simple line of cord or cable to the eyelets of the kederstrap. There is no need for a complicated pulling system, just attach a pulling wire on each side and go. Furthermore, the kederstrap is extremely strong so when pulling the cloth in, you actually pull the strap and thus the screen over the entire length and not just the first part of the screen which could leave it deformed."
Another new introduction from Novavert at the GreenTech was their AF-0 line of glass fiber fire-resistant (not just flame-retardant) screens with very high light diffusing capacities. Heescher explained that they recently were featured in a trial at the Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture in order to measure the screen for light diffusion properties. "According to the measurements AF-0 screen has a very high Fscatter value of 86 (+/-5). The AF-0 series are available in different shade levels and extremely suitable for installation with our HS2 flexible and modular hanging shade system and roll-ups under all kinds of greenhouse covering. For a fire protection concept, switching to such a material can make the difference whether you will need to install expensive sprinklers or not."
