Open roof greenhouses provide a natural environment for plant growth when the outdoor weather conditions is suitable and an artificial environment when it’s too hot or cool. Starting the roof over the plants increases light intensity that may help to control the growth habit, flowering and crop timing. In addition, it reduces electricity costs as expensive lover cooling is not needed.
Several methods are used to open up the roof. Some producers make a roof that opens by rolling up the solitary or double coating of flexible plastic-type material glazing that runs the distance of the greenhouse bay. A small gear electric motor rotates a shaft that winds the plastic on to it just like a window shade. A light, second framework over the structure secures the plastic-type material from bellowing out during windy weather. Opening and closing the roof could be either manual or automatic. Each part of the roof could be managed independently for versatility in cooling.
Folding roof greenhouses work very well in snowy climates as they can be tightly closed during winter. Most designs use regular vent hardware. Some possess panels that hinge at the gutter and open 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 approximately 85%. Most designs use rubber gasketing to seal the joints. Glazing could be cup, polycarbonate or film plastic. Some manufacturers give a movable gutter to collect rainwater when the roof is usually partially open. Wind sensors should be installed to close the roof in stormy weather. 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 should be of a porous design to allow heat to escape. In northern climates a power blanket may also be installed to lessen heat loss through the winter.
These structures consist of a steel frame, flexible glazing and cable support. Woven UV stabilized polyethylene film produces a watertight glazing. Based on the cropping system, bracing of the framework could be external cables attached to deadmen, internal compression braces or trusses with cable X bracing. Flat roof designs are utilized where there is little rainfall or snow. A-roof designs shed the rain and snow to an internal 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 leading edge of the curtain. One gear motor will handle up to 50,000 sq ft of roof Heating system is more challenging than in a typical greenhouse due to the single layer plastic-type material and better infiltration through gaps and cracks in the seals.
