Sunfilm® Blocker Bubble Foil

when growing indoors or in a greenhouse, be prepared to face different challenges than you would in the outside world.

Especially when you’re utilizing grow lights, indoor growing can give you less control over high temperatures than you’d like. Redirecting rays for the greatest efficiency can be difficult without creating those dreaded “hot spots” – pockets of too-high temperatures that radiate from your fixture.

What’s the solution? Blocking light of course, which reduces high temperature. But why not reflect it, put it to good use, and save energy in the meantime, too?


Better than any foil or similar products, the Sunfilm® Sun Blocker brings you a twin solution to hot spot problems: simultaneously blocking light, while also reflecting it in a way that reduces excessively high temperatures. It also refracts rays to the benefit of your indoor growing setup or greenhouse.

  • 3 LAYER TECHNOLOGY – A barrier bubble film is sandwiched between two layers of foil, creating both insulation and reflection.
  • HALT DISEASE – Reduction of hot spots and increased radiance slows down developing bacterial and fungal diseases.
  • CONSERVE – Blocks off 97% of all radiant heat while reflecting it as beneficial photosynthesis for your greenhouse plants.

Manage heat and light problems with brilliance.
