GREENHOUSE CONSTRUCTION AND GREENHOUSE COATING MATERIALS
Greenhouses are built by coating materials with light and heat energy permeability such as glass, polyethylene, polycarbonate on the construction made with iron, wood, plastic materials and mostly iron.
Things to consider during the supply of greenhouse construction material:
When we think of greenhouse construction material as greenhouse construction material and greenhouse coating material, the material suitable for production and the current geographical conditions of the region should be selected, and the selected material should be light and durable, energy-saving, easy to repair and maintain, and take care to be supplied from certified companies that show that the selected material has the necessary standards. should be shown
Greenhouse construction material
If we consider wood and plastic at first, although plastic pipes or wooden materials are used in terms of accessibility and low cost in extensive (traditional) agriculture or small-scale greenhouses established for hobby purposes, its durability and long-term low cost and less maintenance in professional greenhouse construction with a large production volume. Iron construction is preferred because it requires
The materials known as greenhouse iron are construction elements that have been shaped by giving certain profiles to the steel and include the option of steel that is highly resistant to rust and requires less maintenance, usually galvanized recently.
Box profiles: They are the profiles used in square or rectangular shaped studs or purlins.
Pipe profiles: Cylindrical hollow profiles are generally used in tunnel greenhouse or gothic greenhouse construction.
T, U and L Profiles: They are profiles that take the shape of T, U and L according to their profile, are used for different purposes in different places and have different strength values.
Greenhouse covering materials
The materials we call greenhouse cover material or greenhouse covering material are usually glass, polycarbonate or polyethylene. It may be possible to cover the walls and roof of a greenhouse with different materials, this completely depends on the current climate conditions, budget, and preference, but when choosing the greenhouse covering material, it depends on the light transmittance, suitability for the climatic conditions of the region and The material that will meet these conditions at the most optimum point for the current production should be selected by considering its durability, heat transmittance, ultraviolet light transmittance, and resistance to wear.
Glass is a material that is extremely resistant to deterioration and corrosion, transparent, impermeable to water and air, but highly brittle, affected by sudden temperature changes.
Polycarbonate is a light, durable, easy to shape, insulating plastic material that can be found in different shapes and chemical properties.
Polyethylene is a more affordable, but relatively thin plastic material with less resistance to external conditions than glass and polycarbonate.
In summary, in order to get the maximum efficiency from production, to produce at low cost in the long term and to keep the greenhouse life long, planning should be done well in the selection of greenhouse materials.
