Open roof greenhouses provide a natural environment for plant growth when the outdoor climate would work and an artificial environment when it is too hot or chilly. Opening the roof over the plant life increases light intensity which can help control the development habit, flowering and crop timing. It also reduces electricity costs as expensive lover cooling is not needed.
Several methods are used to open up the roof. Some manufacturers make a roof that opens by rolling up the solitary or double layer of flexible plastic-type glazing that operates the length of the greenhouse bay. A small gear electric motor rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type material on to it such as a window color. A light, second framework over the structure secures the plastic-type from bellowing out during windy weather conditions. Starting and closing the roof could be either manual or automatic. Each part of the roof can be managed independently for versatility in cooling.
Folding roof greenhouses work well in snowy climates because they can be tightly shut during cold weather. Most designs use regular vent hardware. Some possess panels that hinge at the gutter and open up upward. Opening is nearly 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 use rubber gasketing to seal the joints. Glazing can be cup, polycarbonate or film plastic. Some manufacturers provide a movable gutter to collect rainwater when the roof can be partially open up. Wind sensors ought to be set up to close the roof in stormy weather. Movable shade is frequently installed with the open roof design. It decreases heat load by reflecting the suns rays back again out. The shade curtain ought to be of a porous style to allow heat to flee. In northern climates a power blanket can also be installed to lessen heat loss during the winter.
These structures consist of a steel frame, versatile glazing and cable support. Woven UV stabilized polyethylene film produces a watertight glazing. Depending on the cropping program, bracing of the structure could be external cables attached to deadmen, inner compression braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof designs are utilized where there is small rainfall or snow. A-roof styles shed the rainfall 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 moving the leading edge of the curtain. One equipment motor will deal with up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating is more difficult than in a conventional greenhouse because of the single layer plastic-type and greater infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
