GrowSpan offers access to a massive selection of growing materials, including the finest options in greenhouse shade cloth and screens. Whether it’s for light screening, heat retention or any other use, GrowSpan ensures the proper material is incorporated into the shade system. Regardless of application, GrowSpan Shade Systems give growers precision control at a reduced cost.

GrowSpan Shade Systems enhance control over various aspects of the growing environment, resulting in improved conditions for plant growth. Shade systems designed to control the light cycle, like the GrowSpan Blackout System, allow growers to trigger different growth stages, no matter the time of year. An energy shade curtain designed to prevent heat loss and reduce light transmission can help regulate temperatures and control light levels. GrowSpan Shade Systems not only improve control, but they can also provide monthly energy savings.

GrowSpan Shade Systems conserve energy by reducing the area of the greenhouse that requires heating, offering up to 50 percent savings in heating costs. Furthermore, GrowSpan systems can be fully automated to operate based on time of day, changes in light level and many other parameters, reducing labor requirements and energy costs, while still maintaining the optimal growing environment.


GrowSpan Shade Systems provide several benefits for crops, offering complete photoperiod control in any climate. In regions with intense sunlight, a greenhouse screen protects crops and decreases watering needs by preventing plants from drying out. GrowSpan Shade Systems retracted on cloudy days supply maximum light for photosynthesis. The sunlight diffused by screens creates more uniform lighting, allowing the light to penetrate deeper into the plant to improve plant growth.
