1. A full vertical roof opening maximizes light and ventilation and provides an environment most like the outdoors, resulting in ideal growing conditions for your crops and a comfortable work environment.

2. The design promotes natural plant growth by allowing the environment to condition your crop, resulting in less damage when shipped, a longer life on the garden center bench, and increased performance in the garden. The Open Roof design also allows for maximum use of DIF and DIP, decreasing the need for growth regulators.

3. Maintenance is manageable as the rack and pinion drive system minimizes upkeep and the Venlo-style peak offers easy reglazing when glazed with double polyethylene. When glazed with tempered glass, reglazing needs are eliminated.
