Product description


Shading nets are used during the summer to create shade and cool growth conditions.
During the winter the nets are installed and positioned at night to reduce heat loss.
Shade nets allow a good level of air flow and, when placed above film-covered greenhouses, can also create natural ventilation tunnels that aid greenhouse cooling.

Some of the nets we can provide are:
Article “6/5 BLACK” – Shade: 45% - Summer cultivation of horticultural products
Article “6/8 BLACK” – Shade: 60% - Floriculture
Article “6/10 BLACK – Shade: 75% - Plant Nurseries
Article “5/7 WHITE” – Shade: 75% - Summer cultivation of Spinach (Baby Leaf Salads)
Article “5/7 SILVER” – Shade: 90% - Summer cultivation of Valerian (Baby Leaf Salads)


We can produce shade nets in widths up to 40 meters and roll length can also be customized as per the requirements of the clients. Such large widths allow rapid installation and removal, ensuring a quick and easy management of light during the passage from summer to autumn.

The nets can be installed transversely across the top of multi-span tunnels that are already covered by plastic film. The installed net is placed parallel to the ground, thus allowing uniform and equal light intensity in all parts of the greenhouse.

Our shade nets with thermal shielding characteristics, placed above the greenhouse film, are able to reduce the passage of ultraviolet rays during the summer, period of maximum emissions. This entails a decrease in the photodegradation of the film, thus lengthening its duration.

Exhibitor profile

Retilplast Srl, located in Southern Italy, has offered reinforced films and nets for agricultural application since 1975. We manufacture, transform and market a full range of products that help growers protect and improve the quality and quantity of their produce.

Our products find application in Viticulture, Fruticulture, Horticulture and include:

a new series of reinforced films and woven tarpaulins for covering and protecting table grapes, cherries and small wild fruits anti-hail nets windbreak nets sunshade nets and anti-insect nets in widths up to 40 metres wide anti-weed mats pollination nets.
The testing and development of new products and processing methods is vital in order to meet, and often anticipate, market requirements. Retilplast positions itself as a bridge between market needs and the world of raw materials and machinery.

We use the most advanced technologies during the processes of extrusion, weaving and lamination. The careful selection of raw materials meets the high level of quality we have achieved with our products and justifies our company's presence in the most demanding international markets.

Our applied research requires dedicated machines that are versatile and easily configurable. Retilplast and its corporate staff are committed to the continuous research, development, manufacturing and marketing of products that stand out for their very high standards of quality, mechanical strength and durability.

Retilplast uses patented technology to reinforce plastic films and woven tarpaulins that are used on tent-structures as protective covers for table grapes, cherries and soft berry fruits.

This innovation allows us to offer plastic covers with optical and physical properties that previously were difficult to use on tent-structures because of their poor mechanical strength. Customers can now choose the cover that best suits their needs from a wide range of plastic sheets which have varying levels of transmittance, thermicity, diffused light, combined light (diffused and direct) and mechanical strength.


Mechanical strength:
Our patented lateral reinforcement is much more resistant to tearing and tensile forces than the traditional methods used so far in this sector. The edges are reinforced by the application of woven fabric in order to create a selvedge on which we then apply tie-down holes. The pre-made holes facilitate the insertion of hooks and PVC tie-strings that are commonly used to install plastic table-grape and cherry covers.

These pre-cut machine-made holes applied to our new reinforced selvedges are about 45% stronger than metal grommets.

Cost-Efficient Solutions:
The application of holes instead of metal grommets is an innovative technology that creates benefits while minimizing costs. The reinforced edges are perforated at regular and constant intervals which allow for precise correspondence of the holes between two aligned sheets. This results in the use of a single tie-string, of fixed length, to fasten and join two sheets, with the added advantage of keeping consistent the mechanical stress to which the tie-down holes are subjected.

The elimination of metal eyelets also facilitates the process of recycling the covers that have ended their life cycle.
