Do you know, how a GreenHouse works?
Rays from the sun enter the walls and roof of thr greenhouse, next the heated air is less dense so it rises and is simulataneously replaced by cooler air. The heat from the ground also is transmitted to the layer of air next to it, which expands and becomes lighter than the air above it.
After that, this cycle continues throughout the day. The stored warmth goes a long way toeards keeping the plants protected from cold temperatures through the night until the run rises again, although in some areas one may need to make arrangements to provide additional heat and light the plants.
That’s how greenhouse works!
And so how to creating the right greenhouse ? Of course there are several steps that you must to do.
1. Locate the Greenhouse
When planning the location of a greenhouse, you’ll want to orient it either east to west or north to south, to maximize sunlight exposure. Make sure the area will not have sun blocked by buildings or trees. Since the greenhouse works by trapping solar radiation and converting it into heat, you’ll want to choose an area that is well exposed to light.2Decide the Greenhouse Style
There are several choices of greenhouse structural frames such as the lean-to, even-span, span roof, glass-to-ground, Quonset, gothic arch, cold frame, and a frame. The lean-to is not freestanding and is attached to another building, alleviating water and electricity as aconcern. Concider the building cost and water when choosing a freestanding greenhouse. The span-roof type on e of the more common freestanding varieties.
2. Choose the Foundation
The greenhouse should be built on a strong foundation such as concrete, especially if your greenhouse will ultimately use glass intead of plastic. A wood foundation can be a viable alternative for smaller greenhouses. Species like cedar, redwood, and crypress are resistant to moisture.
3. Best Frame Material
A good greenhouse frame should be of great strength as wel as provide additional insulation. Frame material option include wood, aluminium, galvanized steel, resin, and PVC plastic. Aluminium and resin are less expensive than wood and offer strength. However, they do not offer as musc insulation. PVC frame insulates well, but lacks the strength of wood or material.
4. Covering or Glazing
Heat retention, light penetration, durability, reparability and budget are all factors to concider between glass, fiberglass, film plastic, and double-wall plastic. Glass reduces heat loss and helps keep humidity levels consistent, but is costly and can break, an requires you uses a solid foundation. Plastic is less expensive but must be replaced every few years. Each covering has its own drawbacks and advantages
5. Watering System
For the lesser number of plants, watering by hand may be the practical option for you. But for larger greenhouse you’ll want to examine your options for timers or mechanical evaporation sensors for automatic irigatioin systems. There is an investment to concider when weighting your options but the extra cost and occasional need to fix the system is beneficial for busy people.
6. Lighting System
For winter and rainy seasons, it may make sense to install a lighting system so that the plants have olenty to eat all the time. As side-note, the additional light to help the plants to grow better, as it is used with light in photosynthesis.
7. Heating System
The working of a greenhouse largely depends on the day and night temperatures inside the building. As it is an instulated structure, the heating system is crucial for healthy growth of greenhouse plants during winter. According to your convenience and budget, you can use a heater powered by electricity, gas, oil, wood, or sun’s energy. Similiarly, there should be cooling arrangements for the hot summer months.
8. Type of Ventilation
You can use natural ventilation or mechanical ventilation to keep your greenhouse functioning efficiently. Roof and side vents will vent air naturally, or you can opt for an exhauset fan or a motorized inlet louvres.
9. Air Circulation
Air circulation helps maintain a consistent temperature for the plants. Knowing the arrangement for air-mixing fans in your greenhouse is essential before you begin construction. When heaters are need to keep the greenhouse air temperature uniform, air mixing fans are of great importance, and air circulation can aid in pollination as well.
Creating a green house is not difficult in making it happen, as long as you understand all the processes, both from the preparation to the development process. Green house is a special building that has a function as a planting medium to help plants to grow optimally and optimally, from the time of breeding, storage to the process of cultivation.
GreenHouse Technology is process automation. You can control all processes, from irrigation and climate to energy in your greenhouse, and ensure high quality production at low costs. GreenHouse Technology saves energy and creates the right climate for your crop. The structure of a greenhouse is one of the key factors in protected and intensive cultivation, where the primary objective is to obtain the maximum yield from production. The greenhouse not only houses the crop, but also provides all the technical requirements to achieve this objective.
We offer construction and control system of GreenHouse Technology customized for your specific needs. We have developed some projects in a number of Middle Eastern countries such as Bahrain, Riyadh, other Asian Countries and Local Indonesia.
