Depending on the sort of greenhouse you desire, greenhouse materials might differ. You may get high-quality greenhouse materials from Aqua Hub at a very low cost. The majority of wooden greenhouses are constructed using poles that the farmer either supplies or may buy. The poles must be treated with a wood preservative or oil before to use. In addition, cement, sand, insect net, barbed wire for trellising, and nails are needed to construct a wooden greenhouse. Additional greenhouse components include a drip watering system and UV-treated polythene greenhouse coverings. Contrarily, metal greenhouses can be of entirely of galvanized steel or coated to prevent corrosion.
There are different materials that are used for greenhouse construction. The material are different depending on the type of greenhouse. The greenhouse materials are categorized into two; materials for the structure and materials for the cover.
Greenhouse materials for the structures
The structure of the greenhouse contains the columns, beams, straps, etc. that support the roof, wind, rain, snow, positioned devices that overload trellising plants, and so forth. The quantity of shading and internal flexibility should be kept as little as possible. Greenhouse buildings must meet the following requirements:
- They should be both light and strong.
- Materials that are inexpensive and easy to maintain.
- Capable of being extended.
- Fill the surface completely.
- Modular and adaptable to a variety of materials.
The following materials are most commonly used to construct greenhouse structures, depending on their intended function:
|Pillars, supports and reinforcements||wood|
iron and aluminum
|straps and beams||galvanized steel,|
iron and aluminum
|Arches||galvanized steel or|
|foundation supports or foundation bases||Concrete|
|securing the cover||Galvanized wire|
or profiles galvanized steel or aluminum,
depending on the type of greenhouses.
|Crop wire||galvanized steel|
or aluminum and galvanized wire
Greenhouse Materials for the cover
The most important characteristics of the cover are the transmission of solar light, transparency to infrared or thermal radiation, and heat transfer of the materials used to build it.
|Plastic Films||polyethylene copolímeto ethylene vinyl acetate|
polyvinyl chloride plastics and multilayer
|Rigid plastics||Methyl polymethacrylate|
