Energy curtains, also known as thermal curtains, are one way to manage energy loss during cool nights and throughout the winter. Energy curtains lower the “ceiling” of the greenhouse, reducing the amount of heat required to warm the house. Depending on the material, they can also double as shade curtains, allowing control over light levels.
Stuppy’s Internal Shade systems are designed in-house and manufactured to your specifications. Combining easy installation with complete truss-to-truss incremental coverage, each system can accommodate most interior shade/energy curtain fabrics.
The Stuppy Interior Shades feature a motorized system with controls that operate the curtain based on light level or temperature. Our automated systems typically follow the roof line and are provided as a slope-flat-slope configuration to allow extra clearance for equipment and overall ventilation. With this system, potential energy savings could reach 30% – 40% (depending on cloth type) by closing during the day or at night to conserve energy and reduce heat loss. Control light levels with shade fabrics that range from 15% – 70%.
