The Guardian is built with North American made hot dipped galvanized steel framing that is a semi-gable style greenhouse. Oval tubing bows and 2×4” uprights provide superior strength and defense against harsh weather. Sitting with an average peak height of 17’ and a sidewall height of 7’, the Guardian Series engineered greenhouse provides ample room for cultivation of any kind. Our pre-welded cathedral style truss system provides a strong structure that can withstand high snow and wind loads without sacrificing height.
All our frames and materials are pre-fabricated and punched so our customers save thousands (if not tens of thousands) on install costs. This makes it easy for you to modify and add additional equipment down the road.
The Guardian engineered blackout greenhouse comes in an available width of 30’ with 6’ tall straight sidewalls. Customize the length from 48’ to 144,’ depending on your needs.
A tear-resistant 6 mil SOLARIG poly comes standard with the greenhouse with optional upgrades for rigid polycarbonate. Our standard woven soft poly is UV treated and has anti-drip and light diffusing properties ideal for controlling internal climates. For extra strength and durability, an 8 mil woven SOLARIG poly is available as an optional upgrade.
Optional roof vents from 4’ to 12’ in length provide an efficient way to disperse heat and humidity while reducing overhead from added electrical costs of running high power fans and equipment.
The Guardian is structurally engineered for all 50 states along with Canada, so no matter where you’re located, you can increase your yields with this new interior light deprivation greenhouse system.
Greenhouse growing these days isn’t complete without a light deprivation system. By using an automated blackout system, growers can harvest 3-5 times a year by putting the sun on their schedule. By harnessing the sun in a temperature and humidity controlled environment, growers will see their outdoor plants now producing indoor quality flower. Investing in a fully automated light deprivation greenhouse is a cost effective and efficient way to set up a climate controlled grow, while reducing start up costs and carbon footprints. Our light deprivation greenhouses are quick and easy to install and gives growers the control they need to have a successful harvest multiple times a year. Use the automated controls to set your blackout periods and your environmental controls and forget the headache of remembering to pull tarps everyday.
The precise control of your plants’ photoperiods is vital to their success. Inadvertently letting light in during their dark periods can cause problems with your crops and ultimately cost you money.
This interior blackout system will give you years of worry-free operation. Not all black out systems are created equally. Unlike most of the other interior blackout systems on the market that use a “rack and pinion” style system, this is a “pull-pull” cable driven system which provides a better light-tight seal. A patented sealing extrusion creates a tighter blackout when closed. The precision system opens up into tight bundles to maximize the amount of light that reaches each bay. The manufacturer rates it for more than ten years of maintenance-free operation due to the high tension and consistent seal.
Longevity and wear and tear is also an issue on most interior blackout systems. Most systems have issues with blackout fabric rubbing and eventually tearing as it is pushed and pulled across metal and/or cables. Our system uses specialized hook and lever system that essentially keeps the curtains free and clear so many years of use can be had before replacement is necessary.
Every portion of the system comes pre-fabricated with pre-installed connection points for easy installation by a professional contactor.
The three-phase Ridder gearbox motor arrives pre-wired with a reverse function and a manual operating switch. You can easily connect this to any environmental/automation controller. It has a variable frequency drive (VFD) for long-lasting reliability and performance.
Our frames are made from N. American Galvanized steel and pre-punched plus pre-drilled for easy installation. Comes with full end wall framing for mounting equipment. Rust free for life.
Proprietary pull-pull cable driven design with seamless meeting points at aluminum seal angles to provide a more reliable blackout than rack & pinion systems. Uses industry best Dutch Ridder motors & triple layer blackout fabric to provide a long life to the system.
Save time and money setup with our custom designed, UL listed Link4 iGrow 800 Automation system. Comes standard with contactor/relay panel, 4 – 22 amp 3 contactor modules and NEMA 4 enclosure.
Provide greater longevity by reducing tear risks with Solarig woven poly coverings. This poly has anti-condensate treatment to reduce dripping and potential mold/mildew outbreaks, as well as light diffusion properties for even canopy coverage.
Sheet metal covering provided for end walls to increase the durability of the structure. Sheet metal will help the structure stand up better to the pressures of wind and result in fewer costs for repairing or replacing material. Clear polycarbonate cladding is provided for the peaks above the light dep curtain for increased light transmission.
All of our interior light deprivation greenhouses come with the option for a manual or automated ridge vent. Usually around 6’ wide and spanning the length of the greenhouse, a ridge vent is a great way to passively remove heat and humidity build up. It’s an ideal solution for hot climates to help reduce energy costs from active cooling through ventilation.
Upgrade the end wall cladding to a White/Black/White 8mm twinwall polycarbonate for gable end walls below the blackout curtain. Provides better IR value than sheet metal end walls.
There is no better insulation value then a double poly inflation kit. Using two layers of 6mil polyethylene and an inflation system, we create a deep air bubble, providing insulation for energy retention. You can inflate the full structure, or just the roof to allow for versitility in sidewall operation. This provides a 40% energy savings over polycarbonate and adds strength for wind and snow resistance.
High pressure fogging systems by Fogco provide additional cooling and humidifying options for dry and high temp climates. Additionally the high pressure fog droplets encapsulate airborne molecules, causing dust particles to become heavy and fall from the air.
Cover your intakes with insect screen to prevent moths and other pests from entering the greenhouse. Reduces the need for insecticide use.
Essential for humid climates, choose from various size dehumidifiers to aid in properly maintaining ideal humidity for healthy plants. Allows for VPD control, limits powdery mildew outbreaks, and improves crop quality.
Tested and guaranteed odor elimination options for locations with strict odor laws. A fogging system is used on the exhaust fans and ridge vents with an additive that neutralizes 100% of all odors.
Significantly lower greenhouse temperatures with evaporative cooling. Used on the intake side of the greenhouse, our evaporative cooling systems use cold water to cool down air as it’s drawn through the pads, bringing coller air through the greenhouse. Additionally, evaporative cooling systems help to neutralize pollen and outside contaminates.
Use the right lights for your climate, growing goals, and budget. We help guide you through the process of choosing lights and ideal placement. Choose from energy efficient LED’s, LEC’s, and high power HPS lights. All tested and vetted for greenhouse efficacy and results.
Maintaining a uniform environment is essential to growing healthy plants. Utilize the industry best Reznor propane or natural gas heaters to automatically heat greenhouse as needed. Overhead heaters will help with controlling VPD levels, so you can maintain an ideal growing environment in any climate.
Combined with horizontal airflow fans, V-flo fans by Vostermans creates the ideal solution for heat distribution throughout the greenhouse. Mounted in the ridge of the structure, they help break up heat and humidity by pulling air from below the fan and pushing it out for more consistent temperatures.
We offer the industry’s best quality US & Dutch made exhaust fans to ensure you always have proper airflow and can cool your plants in the heat of the summer. Choose from budget friendly and highly efficient options depending on the size of your structure and project location. Our fans are designed for efficiency and operate at a higher CFM for better air exchange and optimized use of energy. Exhaust Fans and Intakes are packaged with light traps to prevent light leaks when operating while the greenhouse is dark.
