Light management in a garden greenhouse

If a greenhouse must be exposed as long as possible to the sun's rays, it happens that in summer in particular, the strength of the radiation becomes harmful to the plants of the greenhouse, although airy it is. It is therefore necessary to attenuate or stop this radiation during the hottest hours in order to prevent the plants from "cooking" behind the windows. It is thus necessary to carry out a fixed artificial shading (white of Spain) or mobile (lifting straws). In addition to these traditional means, modern automated or non-automated shading systems (shade shades) are ideal for protecting greenhouses. Some even provide thermal insulation in winter.
