Open roof greenhouses give a environment for plant growth when the outdoor weather would work and an artificial environment when it’s too hot or frosty. Starting the roof over the plants increases light intensity which can help control the growth habit, flowering and crop timing. In addition, it reduces electricity costs as expensive fan cooling is not needed.
Several methods are accustomed to open the roof. Some manufacturers make a roof that opens by rolling up the solitary or double coating of flexible plastic-type glazing that runs the distance of the greenhouse bay. A small gear motor rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type on to it just like a window shade. A light, second framework over the framework secures the plastic material from bellowing out during windy climate. Starting and closing the roof could be either manual or automatic. Each side of the roof could be controlled independently for flexibility in cooling.
Folding roof greenhouses work very well in snowy climates because they can be tightly shut during winter. Most designs use regular vent hardware. Some have panels that hinge at the gutter and open up 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 about 85%. Most designs make use of rubber gasketing to seal the joints. Glazing can be cup, polycarbonate or film plastic material. Some manufacturers give a movable gutter to gather rainwater when the roof can be partially open up. Wind sensors ought to be installed to close the roof in stormy weather. Movable shade is generally installed with the open up roof design. It decreases heat load by reflecting the suns rays back out. The shade curtain ought to be of a Gearbox For Greenhouse porous style to allow heat to flee. In northern climates a power blanket may also be installed to reduce heat loss during the winter.
These structures contain a steel frame, versatile glazing and cable support. Woven UV stabilized polyethylene film produces a watertight glazing. According to the cropping program, bracing of the structure can be external cables mounted on deadmen, inner compression braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof designs are used where there is small rainfall or snow. A-roof styles shed the rain and snow to an interior gutter system. Designs that 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 manage up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating is more challenging than in a typical greenhouse because of the single layer plastic-type and higher infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
