LIGHT DEPRIVATION

We’re not afraid of the dark. And why would we be? With over 40-years of experience in light deprivation and blackout curtains, we are your first choice for optimum darkness and reliability. Our projects are individually engineered to provide a perfect fit every time.

Wadsworth’s light deprivation system leaves my greenhouse completely dark no matter how sunny the day. There’s no light leakage when the supplemental lights are on during evenings and nights. An added bonus is the heat retention the curtain offers. It keeps the grow climate consistent, which is better for the crop.

We installed both of our curtain systems ourselves, one 7-years ago, and one 3-years ago. Each is 120’ square coverage, and both are still taut. The clips are a good system. The curtains save on our heating bill and keep the heat lower to the ground, near the plants, where it should be.  – BRIAN PRANG, Prange Greenhouses, Wisconsin

We were tempted by another curtain system. But we didn’t want to risk it. We have a long relationship with Wadsworth, and we knew we could trust them to deliver a great system. I’m happy we went with Wadsworth – they take care of us. – VINCE BEAL, Bell Nursery, Maryland
