In conjunction with our cost-effective yet sturdy exterior auto light dep system, Fullbloom provides one of the best internal auto light deprivation systems in the industry. Our Guardian Series blackout greenhouse is ideal for high snow, high wind areas or anyone requiring a coded/engineered structure. This engineered 30’ wide semi-gable structure makes it easy to grow year-round in most of the harshest climates in the US.
The Guardian is built with North American made hot dipped galvanized steel framing that uses a similar semi-gable style as our exterior 30’ wide greenhouse. Oval tubing bows and 2×4” uprights provide superior strength and defense against harsh weather. Sitting with an average peak height of 16’ and a sidewall height of 6’ (may differ depending on engineering requirements) the Guardian Series provides ample room for cultivation of any kind. Our pre-welded cathedral style truss system helps us provide very high snow and wind strength 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 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.
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.
The benefits of automation are now widely understood. Gone are the days of spending time and energy manually pulling tarps with an army of employees.
This interior blackout system offers even more advantages than a standard exterior light deprivation system. With the automated blackout system on the inside of the greenhouse, it’s easier than ever to grow through the winter. There’s no more worrying about high winds or snow interfering with the operation of your equipment.
Automate your entire greenhouse system, including a/c, light deprivation, dehumidifiers, heaters, and all ventilation, including circulation fans, exhaust fans, louvers, ridge vents, and sidewall roll-ups. See key metrics, including humidity, CO2 levels, and indoor and outdoor temperature, at a glance from your phone or computer using a cloud-based automation controller.
