Cresco – Phormium increases Warranty to 8 years

For more than 30 years, Phormium is a leading global player in the segment of screens for horticultural greenhouses. The state-of-the art production plant in Lokeren (Belgium) is fully vertically integrated: from yarn extrusion, weaving-beam production, weaving & knitting to tailormade finishing, Phormium is the only screen producer that has all the know-how under one roof.

Unlike all other traditional knitted screens, most Phormium screens are woven. The advantages are great: the unique woven technology provides yarns in both directions of the screen. This creates a robust, durable structure, produced with the strongest and highest quality yarns, such as HDPE, Acrylic & Polyester yarns. This results in a longer lifetime and a much lower cost of ownership; up to more than 30% lower than with traditional screens.

That technology combined with the decades of real-life experience in greenhouses in the most diverse climates all over the world, allows Phormium to officially extend the warranty to 8 years. Of course, the real lifespan of the woven screens is even higher. Depending on the specific circumstances, the screens can last up to twice the warranty period!

Moreover, the long life of the woven Phormium screens means that they are the most sustainable and environmentally friendly choice. That contributes to the reduction of the use of fossil fuel based materials.
