aluminum straight-eave lean-to greenhouse
January 20, 2017

Solar Innovations® Architectural Glazing Systems’ install team recently completed work on a residential greenhouse in Virginia. The SI5207 aluminum straight-eave lean-to greenhouse is equipped with a SI2250 out-swing terrace door on both gable ends for convenient access from the structure to the outdoors. In order to provide the proper growing environment, a complete line of greenhouse accessories was added to the structure, including an iGrow control system, thermostat,
temperature and rain sensors, heater, retractable hose system, drip irrigation system, circulating fan, sliding plant hanger, three hanging trellises, and three deep aluminum straight-eave lean-to greenhousesided seedling benches. Seedling benches can be filled with soil to grow plants directly in the benches’ beds; they allow a flower bed or vegetable garden to be brought straight into the greenhouse and provide a raised working space so the gardener does not have to get on his or her knees to maintain the seedling bed. Ridge and eave vents, which are operated through the control system, provide ventilation and allow air to circulate to naturally regulate the temperatures within the greenhouse. This structure features LoE 272 insulated tempered glazing and AAMA 2603 Natural Clay framing finish.

 
This straight-eave lean-to greenhouse offers an unmatched growing environment for a residential gardening enthusiast. Solar Innovations® Architectural Glazing Systems can engineer and build greenhouses in any size, shape, and configuration for various applications, including hobby, commercial, research, educational, institutional, and specialty greenhouses
