The glass greenhouse design by Rough Brothers uses single-layer glazing with an aluminum substructure. This combination provides for the maximum environmentally controlled space at a minimum cost. Standard truss designs for the glass greenhouse permit clear-span widths in either free-standing or gutter-connected combinations.

Ridge vents and sidewall vents are both available for the glass greenhouse and can be supplied as either manual or motor operated. The glass greenhouse configuration is typically A-Frame, but Lean-To greenhouse, Sawtooth greenhouse and custom designs are easily accommodated.
