Open roof greenhouses provide a environment for plant growth when the outdoor weather is suitable and an artificial environment when it is too hot or cold. Starting the roof over the plants increases light intensity which can help control the growth habit, flowering and crop timing. In addition, it reduces electricity costs as expensive fan 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 little gear electric motor rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type on to it like a window shade. A light, second framework over the structure secures the plastic from bellowing out during windy weather. Starting and closing the roof can be either manual or automatic. Each side of the roof could be controlled independently for flexibility in cooling.
Folding roof greenhouses work well in snowy climates as they can be tightly closed during cold weather. Most designs use regular vent hardware. Some have panels that hinge at the gutter and open up upward. Opening is nearly 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 can be glass, polycarbonate or film plastic material. Some manufacturers give a movable gutter to collect rainwater when the roof is usually partially open. Wind sensors should be set up to close the roof in stormy climate. Movable shade is generally installed with the open roof design. It decreases the heat load by reflecting the suns rays back again out. The shade curtain ought to be of a porous design to allow heat to escape. In northern climates an energy blanket may 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 respect to the cropping system, bracing of the structure can be external cables mounted on deadmen, inner compression Gearbox For Greenhouse braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof styles are used where there is little rainfall or snow. A-roof styles 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 are available. The roof opens in sections by shifting the industry leading of the curtain. One equipment motor will manage up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating system is more difficult than in a conventional greenhouse due to the single layer plastic-type material and higher infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
