Novelties 2014

Exact AIR: enough air everywhere, even at the bottom

Exact AIR is produced using Gradient Technology. The density of the stone wool decreases gradually from the top to the bottom of the slab. This explains the improvements in the vertical distribution of water content, EC and pH. The bottom of the slab no longer has 100% water content, after drainage the water content at the bottom of the slab quickly drops back to 90%. The plants will produce less aquatic roots and more roots with root hairs because of the increased availability of O2 in the rooting zone at the bottom of the slab.

CultiOne: single-use plant propagation tray

The new single-use tray has clear advantages in terms of hygiene, logistics, plant quality and cost. CultiOne is lightweight, robust, has improved drainage and a smooth finish. This ensures better root systems in the 27 mm plugs due to air pruning, resulting in less root damage, less wastage and faster growth into the stone wool block.

Albarino diffuse glass

Albarino has the advantages of high light transmission, exact dimensions, minimum risk of broken panes, and the possibility to add an AR coating on one or both sides, which improves light transmission by another 5%.
