ValkScreenDrive - Product Update | Part 2

ValkBearingBracket 2.0: guiding at a high level!

You recently received the first part of our six-part mailing series about our innovative drive system ValkScreenDrive. 

In this series, we each highlight one essential part of the system, give you tips and share insights to optimise greenhouse performance.

In part 1, we told you all about the ValkDriveShaft. Today, the spotlight is on the ValkBearingBracket 2.0.

This new bearing evolved from our new drive shaft. Due to the innovative coating it has received, its surface is completely smooth. This paved the way for the development of a plastic variant bearing, the ValkBearingBracket 2.0, with unique advantages!

What does a bearing do?

The bearing plays an essential role in driving screen systems. By reducing friction and distributing loads evenly, the bearing contributes to system efficiency, reliability and service life.

What makes the ValkBearingBracket 2.0 unique?

  • More durable
    The plastic sliding bearing prevents cutting of the drive shaft, resulting in less wear and a longer life of the system.
  • Smoother
    Thanks to the advanced sliding technology, the bearing operates remarkably smoothly and efficiently.
  • More resistant
    Because the shaft is completely enclosed in the sliding bearing, it is more resistant to the forces of the ValkDriveShaft.
  • Easier to mount
    The bearing can be opened, making mounting the drive shaft and/or replacing the bearing a simple job.
  • Less maintenance
    The ValkBearingBracket 2.0 requires less maintenance, so you can count on less downtime and more operational hours.
  • More affordable
    In addition to these unique features, the updated bearing is also more affordable than its predecessor! 

Tips for professionals

  • You can mount the ValkBearingBracket and the ValkBearingBracket 2.0 to the greenhouse construction using bolted connections. If they need to be fixed freely in the truss, you can use a ValkBearingSupport. This allows you to mount the ValkBearingBracket at the correct position in the truss.
  • Is drilling into the steel construction not possible or permitted? Then the ValkBearingSupport clamp variant is an excellent alternative. It is also available in a variant suitable for a double screen.
  • We customise all ValkBearingSupport variants for the right truss height.
