UmbraTex & UmbraTex Air

Certain plants (e.g. half-shade plants) are subject to rigorous demands in terms of light and watering. In response to these needs, HUESKER supplies state-of-the-art screens, made from fine-meshed, high-strength polyester fabrics, which have been successfully used in greenhouses for many years.

By selecting an appropriate colouration of the fabric various light transparencies are possible so that an optimum light distribution can be achieved. Furthermore, not only a positive influence on the energy savings is generated by the good climatic conditions inside the greenhouse, but also the emission of CO2 will be reduced. The superior flame protection corresponds to all legal requirements for greenhouses and garden centres.


Through the use of multifilament yarns from resistant polyester, the fabrics become especially long-lasting, dimensionally stable and heat-resistant. UmbraTex is available in various shading coefficients and is used for indoor shading systems like roll screens, horizontal screens and gable screens.

The open structure of the newly developed UmbraTex Air creates an optimal ventilation inside the greenhouse. The unique weaving technique makes an efficient circulation at the roof hatch possible. Matching the UmbraTex shading fabrics, UmbraTex Air is available in the same shading coefficients – also visually an appealing combination.
