Commercial greenhouse improvements for best value return
1. Use rolling benches to maximize space usage
Replacing stationary benches with rolling benches can add 25% more production space compared to conventional stationary bench layouts. By eliminating the extra aisles needed for stationary benches, rolling benches are a much more efficient use of your greenhouse.
2. Increase productivity with material handling systems
Bringing in material handling systems like double rail carts or Rotating Basket Systems can greatly increase productivity. Remember if your material handling system is supported by the greenhouse you need to make sure the greenhouse design will handle these loads. Greenhouse manufacturers and equipment suppliers work together to design systems that integrate well.
3. Save more with energy curtains
Install energy curtains. Energy curtains will result in significant heat savings in the winter – between 20 to 40 percent for northern greenhouses. They also provide shade and help keep your greenhouse cool in the summer months. Shade systems and energy curtains can be added to most gutter connect and freestanding greenhouses. Greenhouse manufacturers like GGS are able to retrofit most existing greenhouses.
