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 cold. Opening the roof over the plants increases light intensity which can help to control the development habit, flowering and crop timing. It also reduces electrical power costs as expensive enthusiast cooling is not needed.
Several methods are used to open up the roof. Some manufacturers make a roof that opens by rolling up the single or double coating of flexible plastic-type glazing that runs the space of the greenhouse bay. A small gear motor rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type on to it such as a window shade. A light, second framework over the framework secures the plastic-type material from bellowing out during windy climate. Opening and closing the roof can be either manual or automatic. Each part of the roof can 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 possess panels that hinge at the gutter and open up upward. Opening is almost 100%. Others have 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 could be glass, polycarbonate or film plastic-type. Some manufacturers provide a movable gutter to gather rainwater when the roof is partially open up. Wind sensors ought to be installed to close the roof in stormy weather. Movable shade is frequently installed with the open up roof design. It decreases heat load by reflecting the suns rays back again out. The color curtain should be of a porous design to allow heat to escape. In northern climates a power blanket can also be installed to reduce heat loss through the winter.
These structures contain a steel frame, versatile glazing and cable support. Woven UV stabilized polyethylene film produces a watertight glazing. With Gearbox For Greenhouse respect to the cropping program, bracing of the structure could be external cables mounted on deadmen, inner compression braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof styles are utilized where there is small rainfall or snow. A-roof designs shed the rainfall and snow to an interior gutter system. Designs that will carry up to 35 lb/sq ft snow load and 100 mph wind loads can be found. The roof opens in sections by moving the leading edge of the curtain. One equipment motor will handle up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating system is more difficult than in a conventional greenhouse because of the single layer plastic-type and higher infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
