Phormium screens are very strong. Unlike all other traditional knitted screens, most Phormium screens (**) are woven. The advantages are great:
The Phormium factory in Lokeren (BE) is part of the world famous weaving industry in Flanders. Phormium has translated the advanced high-tech knowledge of weaving into superior screen solutions. As the only woven screen manufacturer in the world, Phormium is fully vertically integrated: from yarn extrusion, weaving beam production, weaving & knitting to tailor-made finishing, Phormium has all the know-how under one roof!
Based on that experience, Phormium extends the warranty on all woven screens to 8 years. Of course, the real lifespan of the woven Phormium screens is even higher. Depending on the specific circumstances, the screens can last up to twice the warranty period.
Growth driven, Future proof
"We have been using Phormium woven screens for many years in our tomato greenhouses. We choose Phormium because, in addition to excellent shading and energy-saving properties, they also have an incomparably long lifetime. It ensures that we can save significantly on the replacement costs of the screen, the labor costs and the associated organization. In other words, the cost of ownership is a lot lower compared to knitted screens. Lider Gıda (Trabzon, TR) is one of the largest producers of quality tomatoes in Turkey with 37ha of greenhouses "
“We were looking for an energy screen which was strong and durable so it would last for years and that’s how we ended up at Phormium. More than 13 years ago, PhormiTex Bright was installed in the first part of the greenhouse and we are still happy with it. Therefore, it was logical that last year, when we renovated the other part of the greenhouse, we preferred working with the Belgian manufacturer Phormium again.”
