Super Series Design #8000
Super series 8m Overview
The Redpath Super series 8m width greenhouse is used mainly for year-round production of vegetables, flowers and nursery crops that require accurate environmental control irrespective of the outside conditions.
The Super series design is usually singleskin clad with Duratough or Durashelter long life greenhouse film with a service life of ten years +. The cosecant rafter "A" frame design is a unique Redpath feature and it allows superior light transmission through to the crop via its reduced overhead structural shading.
The truss/rafter is also 'curved' so that any internal condensation is prompted to run to the edge of the roof sheets. Reducing condensation allows higher levels of sunlight through to the crop and reduces overhead dripping.
The single ridge ventilation system and incorporates aluminium draft strip upstands along the full length of roof vent closure points which provides improved weather flashing. The roof ventilation is typically fully automated with high quality European vent drives - although manual control is an option.
This building's roof ventilation is typically complimented by the roll up sidewall vents which may be manual or automatic opening.
Gutters are a 250mm wide structural part, and of 'walkthrough' design, the gutters allow substantial rainfall catching and easy access to the roof for maintenance and equipment. All gutters include a 100% rust-proof rain head at gutter ends to catch and duct rainwater to downpipes. Gutters are included standard on the exterior pole lines also.
Redpaths 5 Year gold series warranty applies to this design.
