GrowSpan redefines light deprivation greenhouses with new Series 750

GrowSpan Greenhouse Structures released its Series 750 Commercial Greenhouse. The greenhouse features an internal light deprivation system that is fully automated and is sold at a price point that will shock operations.

According to a news release, GrowSpan has kept all the benefits of traditional light deprivation systems, but simplified the design. This not only leads to a system that is easier to install and maintain, but also a system that is ultra cost-effective. The cable-driven system sits on an internal substructure, so it is protected from the elements, and the blackout material ascends to the structure’s peak, creating blacked out conditions in moments.

While the light dep system will have growers drooling, the greenhouse is also impressive. Built with a galvanized steel frame, the gable-style greenhouse is clad with inflatable film for superior insulation. The end walls are covered with white-black-white polycarbonate that gives the structure a clean and professional look. S750s come in 32 foot widths and can be built in 48 foot, 72 foot, 96 foot and 120 foot lengths. The sidewalls are five feet high, while the peak is 14 feet high and the roof pitch is 6.3:12.

The S750 Greenhouse can also be engineered. Upon request, these structures can be designed to withstand 105 mph wind speeds, 25 psf snow loads, and 12 psf live loads, making this structure a great option even in harsh climates.

GrowSpan is also offering optional equipment packages for the Series 750 Commercial Greenhouses. The packages have been designed and properly sized for each structure by GrowSpan’s Greenhouse Specialists, so structures don’t come over or under equipped. Equipment packages include two exhaust fans with centrifugally activated shutters and low-profile light traps, an evaporative cooling system and endwall vent with white-black-white cladding, and horizontal airflow fans with hanging equipment.
