Gothic Arch Greenhouse
Gothic arch greenhouse is the type of greenhouse where the most suitable environment for ventilation is formed. The use of greenhouses started in the middle of the 16th century throughout the world. Greenhouses, whose production capacity has been increased with today's technologies, are designed in different models according to the needs of the grower. Greenhouse selection and design should be made according to environmental climatic factors (temperature differences, wind intake) and growth characteristics of the type of plant to be grown.
How to Build a Gothic Arch Greenhouse?
The only difference of the Gothic arch Greenhouse installation from other greenhouses is the roof structure. Tunnel Greenhouses are made with a one-piece lattice spring, while in gothic greenhouses it is in the form of two parts. The two pieces merge through the crown clamp. In this way, the radus of the lattice spring becomes more resistant to snow load.
In the greenhouses evaporation causes roof condensation. The roof structure of Gothic arch greenhouses minimizes this situation and prevents water dripping on the plants. Dripping water can form fungus on plants. Diseases may occur in plants from fungi in plants, and this situation is prevented with the roof structure of the gothic greenhouse.
One of the advantages of the roof shape of Gothic greenhouses is that the roof shape increases the volume of the surface floor. In this case, it allows to increase the production capacity and to carry out greenhouse activities in a large and healthy area.
The roof structure of Gothic greenhouses is preferred in regions with difficult climatic conditions, as it provides increased light transmission. The high roof structure of Gothic greenhouses also increases the efficiency of production by ensuring good moisture distribution in the greenhouse.
What is Gothic Arch Greenhouse
Gothic greenhouses allow to make more efficient use of the sun's rays thanks to the roof structure. It is one of the preferred greenhouse models in regions with difficult climatic conditions, in tropical regions with a lot of rainfall and in regions with wind. It got its name from the roof structure. In soilless agriculture; For the cultivation of tomatoes, lettuce and strawberries, Gothic greenhouses are preferred. In the construction of Gothic greenhouses, tunnel widths of 9.6 meters or 12.8 meters and gutter widths close to 5 meters are preferred. Greenhouse companies have shaped their production in this direction.
Although plastic material is generally preferred for the interior and exterior coatings of Gothic arch greenhouses, the use of polycarbonate material is also preferred. The choice of direction is important in the installation of greenhouses.
During installation, the forehead of the greenhouse should be positioned on the land facing south or north. The sides should be positioned to face west and east. If these positions are not taken care of, the light intake of the plant will be prevented.
