R-House is a glass greenhouse designed by RBI. It uses a combination of 1" insulated glass for a vertical glazing and single safety glass for overhead glazing. This combination provides for high light transmission and optimal energy efficiency. Ridge vents and sidewall vents are both available and require no rack area penetrations through the vent screenwork allowing for a tighter greenhouse. The greenhouse configuration can be A-Frame, Lean-To or Sawtooth. Custom designs are available. R-House can be easily adapted to a number of educational institutions and public or private research facilities. With its design versatility, R-House can be the right choice for even the tightest research requirements.
