Fountain is a low-iron float glass treated by a chemical reaction, etching, on one side to create the required level of hortiscatter.
This is sandwiched between two durable anti-reflective (AR) coatings to maximise the hemispherical light transmission but also to protect the glass from corrosion.
In addition, Fountain is a hydrophilic glass which prevents water droplets.
• High hemispherical light transmission
Our 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.
• Superb hortiscatter
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.
• Hydrophilic glass
The uniform distribution of water on the glass has no negative impact on the light transmission, enabling growers to maximise their production. Also, the risk of disease is reduced while the water can be recaptured and recycled.
• Highly corrosion-resistant
Our 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.
