Commercial greenhouses are structures which are on sales, both retail and wholesale. There are multiple applications for commercial greenhouses including coffee shops, greenhouses, floral shops, grocery stores, and garden centers. Each Solar Innovations® commercial greenhouse is customized to the business’s individual requirements. All sizes, shapes, materials, and work areas can be customized to virtually any request.
Whether you are looking for a small lean-to greenhouse to attach to your restaurant where fresh herbs are grown, or a large scale garden center, Solar Innovations® will build a quality commercial product. Each greenhouse is constructed out of durable aluminum, which will not rot, rust, warp, or require constant finish maintenance. The aluminum is very sturdy and will withstand exposure to the elements for years to come. Meeting specific design requirements is not a problem with a Solar Innovations, Inc. commercial greenhouse. There are eight standard frame finishes available along with any custom color you may require.
The glazing used within the frame will be either polycarbonate or glass. Polycarbonate tends to be less expensive and weighs less than glass, which cuts down on shipping costs. Polycarbonate is available in different colors and thicknesses and needs less cleaning than glass but also scratches easier. On the other hand glass is the traditional choice of commercial greenhouses. The glass is available in a larger variety of thicknesses, tints, and types than polycarbonate. The life of glass is longer than polycarbonate and typically matches a building’s decor better than polycarbonate.
Two of the most common commercial greenhouse applications are floral shops and garden centers. Solar Innovations® can design the greenhouse with different zones and areas for specific needs. The floral center will need display space, refrigeration area, large work sinks and benches along with space for the desk. All of these items can be included when designing the greenhouse, along with any additional areas you would like.
The garden center can have its retail space with custom designed benches, available in fixed, tiered, and rolling, by Solar Innovations®, along with a functioning greenhouse. Most garden centers have multiple greenhouses and Solar Innovations® can create each one and design the accessories needed to operate each individual unit. A greenhouse can be specifically designed for annuals, another for perennials, a third for tropical, and any other greenhouse you require. Each greenhouse can be divided into zones; for example the tropical greenhouse which can be divided into orchids, bromeliads, and tropical bonsais.
Each room will require its own accessories used to keep the greenhouse functioning. Solar Innovations® offers every greenhouse accessory needed to run the greenhouse structure. All functions can be automated with a climate control system, or environmental control system. Fans, shading, misting, benches, heating and cooling are all available options to name a few. If there is a specific need you require, let your Solar Innovations® representative know and the pieces will be built into your estimate.
After the greenhouse is designed, Solar Innovations® can complete the installation of the unit. If you have an existing greenhouse that is not functioning, Solar Innovations® offers installation services. An installation crew can come to your business and is typically able to repair the greenhouse; no matter who the manufacturer may have been. Should the greenhouse be beyond repair, Solar Innovations® can demolish it and install the new one.
Based on the scope of your project, there are also “do-it-yourself installation kits” available for those who would like to buy factory direct and complete the installation themselves. No matter what style, use, or requirements your commercial greenhouse has, Solar Innovations® can meet your specific needs and create a practical functioning structure.
