Re-roofing of a Venlo Glasshouse that had a polytunnel style roof

Ebtech Glasshouse Systems have completed the re-roofing of a Venlo Glasshouse that had a polytunnel style roof on it, taking it back to the more traditional glass roof found on a Venlo structure at Binsted Nursery in Barnham, West Sussex.

The roof consisted of 18 spans of 3.2m over a length of 69m at a post height of 4.5m, total surface area 3,974.40m²

The existing steel gutter remained in place, but everything else was removed

The existing roof ventilation system was replaced with a swing vent system, operated via Ridder motors.

A total of 414pcs of three pane vents were installed alternate sides of the ridge, each measuring 3 x 730 x 825mm.

The gable end glass down to the first purlin was also made good.

The replacement roof was all made up of used materials from the Netherlands.

A difficult and demanding project, given some of the weather conditions, but a successful project and a happy client at the end.

Ebtech Glasshouse Systems are providers of new or used glasshouses, benching & irrigation systems, heating & screening and complete turnkey projects from conception to completion.
