Why Use Metal Panels For Greenhouses?

Greenhouses require a few things to function efficiently. Including open space, temperature control, durability, and more. Metal panels not only meet, but exceed these needs. Making them the perfect option for a greenhouse building.

Metal Panels Are Durable

The interior of a greenhouse is often humid, leading to building systems breaking down prematurely. Luckily, a galvanized metal building can stand its own against the moisture and the day to day rigors of a commercial growing operation.

Metal Buildings Are Column Free

Greenhouses need wide, open spaces to effectively support crops and store water. The column-free interior of a metal building allows all of these functions to take place while simultaneously providing flexibility in the layout of the space. 

Metal Panels Are Easily Adapted To Let In Sunlight

It goes without saying that the more sunlight, the better the crops. Glazing panels can easily be integrated with the profiles of a metal building structure to allow more natural light in.

Metal Panels Are Great For Temperature Control

While the areas facing the sun are glazed, other areas may need to be insulated to protect the plants from unwanted heat and cold. Rather than just relying on a supplemental heating or cooling system, the opaque areas of a greenhouse can be designed and installed using insulated metal panels to provide a durable and energy saving component that helps keep temperatures in check.

Not only are metal panels easy to install, but easily expandable as well! As your plants and your business continue to grow, so can the building. These eco-friendly panels are an exceptional option when it comes to your greenhouse structure. Have more questions? Our qualified team of professionals would be happy to help you!

Are Metal Panels Energy Efficient?

Among the top priorities for the majority of residential and commercial building owners? Energy efficiency. Whether it’s an effort to become more eco-friendly or simply reduce heating and cooling costs, ensuring your building is as energy efficient as possible is very important. How can building owners enhance the energy efficiency of their structure? By utilizing metal panels!

Metal Roof Panels

Due to their reflective qualities, metal roofing panels are extremely energy efficient. The material reflects the sun’s UV rays, unlike shingles or asphalt which absorb them. Despite this reflection, with proper underlay and insulation the roof can also act as an incredible insulator during the winter. On average, metal roofs can actually save homeowners 10 to 25% on their annual heating and cooling costs!

Longevity and Sustainability

Metal roofs can last between 40 and 70 years! Not only that, but the material can be recycled at the end of its lifetime. Due to their longevity, durability, and environmental performance, metal roofs are a great choice for those looking to be more energy efficient and sustainable.

Solar Panel Friendly

Nothing screams energy efficiency quite like solar panels! Metal panel systems are solar panel friendly – boasting the ability to withstand the weight of the solar system that far outweighs that of other roofing materials. Solar panels are also easier to install on a metal roofing system. Solar panels are a perfect option for building owner’s to reduce their environmental impact, increase its value, and increase its energy efficiency.
