Why the Arches?
They’re in the name, they must be important, right? Right! The composite arches don’t just give your greenhouse a unique and innovative aesthetic. The arch shape provides outstanding structural geometry which allows for some of the widest clear spans in the industry without sacrificing best in class snow and wind load capacity. The pultruded fiberglass I-beams are exceptionally strong and have very low thermal conductivity compared to metal. Fiberglass’ unmatched thermal performance means our arches reduce interior condensation and relieve strain on your heating and cooling system. Plus, the arch shape and wide bays delivers comfortable and efficient ergonomics so you’ll have happy growers and healthy plants.
Knowing all this, why settle for metal?
