Tunisia: Desert Joy acquires Top Cleaner Poly roof cleaner

That light could be necessary for better crops and a higher production in greenhouses is something that Philip van Antwerpen, CEO of Desert Joy in Tunisia, knows better than anyone else. This progressive Dutch tomato grower never doubted a single second to invest in a Top Cleaner Poly roof cleaner. The Top Cleaner Poly removes the dust layer from the greenhouse in a safe and quick way. Another big advantage in comparison with manual cleaning is that it doesn’t damage the poly roof.



This Top Cleaner Poly has a 12.80 metres work width and is rehung from “peak to peak” by means of a telescopic handler. About 1 hectare is cleaned every day.

Temporary light shielding In the springtime, the Top Cleaner Poly is used to spray an even chalk layer on the poly roof to shield the crops from too much sunlight.



Established in Hazerswoude, Van der Waay is fully specialized in the own design and manufacture of several models of greenhouse roof cleaners and chalking machines for the horticulture sector. These machines are delivered all over the world.
