Greenhouse Accessories

First of all, when designing a greenhouse, it is probably most important not to overlook items like storage space, shades, and walkways, because they also can be critical to the success of a greenhouse. While it is important to address the use for air circulation for plants, storage space for greenhouse necessities, and ample walkways so you can access your plants.

Glass, acrylic, and polycarbonate compare for use in greenhouse applications. Polycarbonate tends to be less expensive than glass but typically does not maintain as well as glass in the long term. A glass/acrylic structure is more aesthetically pleasing than a poly greenhouse and will as a result blend better with a home’s decor. Also, there is also more flexibility in plant growth while using glass. Also, depending on the exact specimen of polycarbonate/acrylic, tit may restrict enough sunlight to diminish growth and blooms in plants. As a result, of selecting glass, the intensity of light can be controlled due to various types of LowE glazing and shading options.

Also, automating your accessories can be as simple as utilizing single stage thermostats and as sophisticated as installing a fully integrated greenhouse automation system. Regardless of the level of automation you choose, since the accessories are therefore designed to work in stages.

Greenhouse Accessory Configuration

In addition, combine greenhouse accessories to create a balanced and efficient growing environment. Our accessories are designed to work either with either manual switches or automatically with sensors, and can be customized to meet your specific needs.

First of all, circulation fans destratify the air. In addition, ridge vents partially open to allow the hot air to escape and windows and eave vents open to allow cool air to enter. Another feature is if the temperature remains too high, therefore the evaporative cooler operates to draw cool moist air into the greenhouse.

Due to an event the evaporation cooler is unable to maintain the desired temperature; as a result, all systems can be shut down. In addition, the intake and exhaust fans can be engaged to attempt to maintain a temperature equal to the outside temperature.

Also, more advanced greenhouse designs can utilize chillers, foggers, and yet other methods of temperature control. In addition, your individual growing needs and the design of your greenhouse will also determine the specific accessories required.
