Our Warranty and UV Protection
The warranty for these screens is also linked to the number 5: we offer 5 years under all types of greenhouse covering.
Why is the warranty of this length? It is the average lifespan under typical thermal conditions in the Central Mediterranean climate. BASIC5 thermal screens have UV stability of 500 kLy (kilo – Langley).
The intensity of UV radiation is measured in kLy (kilo – Langley), a unit that represents the amount of UV radiation that falls on a cm2 per year.
The intensity of UV radiation is variable and, as you can see from the map, depends largely on geographical location.
The symbolism of the number 5
The number 5 represents multiplicity, change, fluidity and exploration.
The influence of the number 5, with its central position in the sequence from 1 to 9, is a guarantee of an ongoing quest for new destinations. It thus symbolizes a new starting point for research, passions and fortune.
