Fountain, a low-iron float glass featuring a specially treated surface, delivers superb hortiscatter, distributing light evenly throughout the greenhouse so it is available to every single leaf and crop. The result is better crop health, yield and uniformity.
Fountain is also available with a double-sided anti-reflective coating.
Our hard anti-reflective coating protects the glass from the corrosion that is very likely to occur on surfaces regularly exposed to water, while also delivering long-lasting performance since it is highly resistant to brush cleaning.
Our highly durable anti-reflective coating delivers excellent hemispherical light transmission (average light transmission all year round). The higher the hemispherical light transmission, the higher the crop yield.
The uniform distribution of water on hydrophilic glass results in higher hemispherical transmission when condensation occurs on the inner side of the glass, as typically happens on cloudy days. These are the times when maximum light is needed inside the greenhouse so that growers can maximise crop production.
Fountain’s superb hortiscatter delivers even light distribution, reducing the amount of shade and ensuring that crops grow uniformly. This not only prevents leaves from burning, but also makes them grow more horizontally, resulting in greater light capture and a higher yield.
Advanced glass solutions are critically important for the next generation of greenhouses. This kind of glazing features a special surface treatment that enables it to deliver the highest level of hortiscatter and distribute light evenly across the entire greenhouse, improving crop health.
