Cabrio Greenhouse: Optimal Control

cabrio roof greenhouse 2 1Often used by growers of perennials, baskets and other potted plants, this is the favorite type of greenhouse for many growers. It gives optimal control over the climate within the greenhouse and with that a harder and nicer crop.

This greenhouse has the same superb structure as the Venlo greenhouse, but with a different roof design for maximum ventilation. This roof system generates up to 96% ventilation. The Cabrio system is storm safe. The continous vents are rack & pinion operated by axels supported in pillow block bearings. Each roof is individually operated by means of a motorized gear box.
