Projekt Details


Family Kuipers constructed a garden centre named “Gartenwelt Emsbüren” covering an area of 82,000 m² located next to the motorway junction A30/A31 Emsbüren. In addition to the existing market garden a new roofed area of about 24,000 m² was created. In order to meet the climatic conditions demanded by the plants it was decided to equip the entire area with a shading system using shading fabrics.


For the showroom a high-quality, visually pleasant and uniform fabric was desired which offers a 70 % shading effect. Due to the high technical demands and colour wishes the fabric of choice was UmbraTex® from HUESKER. In addition to the shading function an energy saving effect of more than 50 % was achieved. Another crucial decision criterion was the excellent fire behaviour which is certified for the flame protection classes B1, Bs-1 d0 and Class 1 dr0. Upon the start of the construction works in November 2013 a total amount of 11,000 m² of shading fabric type UmbraTex 70 was supplied and installed in spring 2014. The fabric was delivered in a made-to-measure width of 167 cm ex-works and was further customized and installed as roll screens by the construction company Leen Huisman. The high-grade cover made from UmbraTex 70 perfectly fits the modern concept of the “Gartenwelt Emsbüren”.


UmbraTex fulfils all requirements for the installation in greenhouses and garden centres and allows an optimum light diffusion for the horticulture. Matching legal regulations, UmbraTex is flame retardant according to DIN 4102-1 (B1), DIN EN 13501-1 (B-s1, d0) and according to NTA 8825 (Class 1, dr0). Thanks to the use of UmbraTex 70 in roll screens, a cut in energy consumption of more than 50 % was made possible. The expected service life of the quality fabric is more than 20 years with a guaranteed UV stability of 10 years behind glass.
