Frost Blankets application
SKAPS Industries nonwoven needle-punched frost blankets are typically designed to be used as thermal blankets to protect frost sensitive plants from extreme temperatures. Applying SKAPS frost blankets keeps the moisture levels consistent between the plant and the ground’s organic top soil. As temperature dips below freezing, ice crystals form on the vegetation’s leaf surface which dehydrates the plants. Placing white frost blanket fabrics in areas of vegetation allows vital necessities, such as sunlight, rain, and irrigation, to filter through to the plants. SKAPS Industries’ frost blankets not only protect plants from cold temperatures, they can also protect the plant from fertilizer/pesticide burns and lengthen any harvesters’ growing season.
