Gutter Connected Greenhouse Structures

 

Gutter connected greenhouse structures are the most popular style structure for the commercial grower that has plans for continued expansion. Additional gutter houses which we call # 2 houses can simply be added to the existing greenhouses at the gutter to form the addition. The new addition can be added without any changes to the existing structure.

The gutter connected greenhouse that we carry are manufactured by Omni Growing Systems. These houses are available in modular 12 foot lengths in widths of 20, 21, 24, 27.5, and 30 feet wide. Just as with their freestanding structures, the gutter connected greenhouse structures feature reinforced arches. The reinforced arch design provides our houses with one of the highest snow load and wind load ratings on the market place.

The gutter houses can be purchased in either double poly roofing cladding ( the most popular ), or hard claddings such as single and double wall polycarbonate. For color photos of structures see below.

The Omni Gutter Connected Greenhouse Structure is a well designed and proven structure. It's design extends back to the late 70's, where growers where seeking a house to stand up against heavy wet snow loads. The standard basic packages include many features that are considered as options on other manufacturers. The gutters and gutter lock are factory prepunched for ease of installation. All structural connection points in members are completely prepunched ( 3/8" or 1/2" bolt and nut ) for ease of installation. Arches feature a slip fit joint at peak and gutter for ease of arch installation. Poly saver ridge purlin features built in bolt track that allows ease of arch alignment.

OMNI REINFORCED ARCH DESIGN

 ..."Our reinforced arch revolutionized the greenhouse industry

By providing exceptional strength at economical prices"....

Most greenhouse companies provide only a single bow arch. On wide span structures to gain the required strength they provide framing and strut members from the arch down to the ties. This is really a short term solution since all that it does is create complexity for the grower when installing shade, energy curtain systems or equipment installations. Our reinforced arches allow clear span from gutter to gutter. Allowing clear access for shade, energy curtain or equipment installation. The detail below illustrates our reinforced arch that is used on the 27.5' and 30' wide structures. The top and bottom cords of the arch are placed a full 9" apart and are completely factory assembled with 5/16" diagonal webbing. The top and bottom cords are constructed in 1 1/2" round tube. All components are galvanized. The arches are supplied in halves and joined together at the middle by the arch/ridge bracket. All joints are slip fit. When assembled the arch is one of the industries strongest arches. Our standard specifications require the arches to be placed at 6 feet on centers.
