Open roof greenhouses provide a environment for plant growth when the outdoor weather conditions would work and an artificial environment when it is too hot or Gear Motor For Greenhouse chilly. Opening the roof over the plants increases light intensity that may help control the development habit, flowering and crop timing. In addition, it reduces electricity costs as expensive fan cooling isn’t needed.
Several methods are used to open the roof. Some producers make a roof that opens by rolling up the solitary or double layer of flexible plastic material glazing that operates the distance of the greenhouse bay. A small gear engine rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type material on to it just like a window color. A light, second framework over the structure secures the plastic-type material from bellowing out during windy weather. Starting and closing the roof can be either manual or automatic. Each part of the roof can be managed independently for flexibility in cooling.
Folding roof greenhouses work very well in snowy climates as they can be tightly shut during winter. Most designs use regular vent hardware. Some possess panels that hinge at the gutter and open upward. Opening is almost 100%. Others possess panels that are hinged at the ridge and one gutter and slide sideways on teflon bearings. Opening is approximately 85%. Most designs make use of rubber gasketing to seal the joints. Glazing can be glass, polycarbonate or film plastic-type material. Some manufacturers give a movable gutter to collect rainwater when the roof is definitely partially open up. Wind sensors should be set up to close the roof in stormy weather. Movable shade is frequently installed with the open roof design. It reduces the heat load by reflecting the suns rays back out. The shade curtain should be of a porous style to allow heat to escape. In northern climates an energy blanket can also be installed to reduce heat loss during the winter.
These structures consist of a steel frame, versatile glazing and cable support. Woven UV stabilized polyethylene film creates a watertight glazing. With respect to the cropping program, bracing of the framework can be external cables mounted on deadmen, inner compression braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof designs are utilized where there is small rain or snow. A-roof designs shed the rain and snow to an internal gutter system. Styles which will carry up to 35 lb/sq ft snow load and 100 mph wind loads are available. The roof opens in sections by shifting the leading edge of the curtain. One equipment motor will handle up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating is more challenging than in a conventional greenhouse due to the single layer plastic material and higher infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
