APEX have extensive experience with facilities for propagation, nursery, research, and medicinal cannabis. We design and manufacture the project with your specific requirements for growing zones, anteroom rooms, cladding type, and climate.
APEX structures are engineered to New Zealand building standards and are designed for crop support / loading, integrated climate screens, irrigation, heating, and lighting. Our steel is AS/NZ certified, manufactured by experienced fabricators, and hot-dipped galvanised for complete assurance and durability.
APEX aluminum gutter and glazing systems are designed to maximise light transmittance and can integrate different thicknesses of glass, polycarbonate twinwall, solar, and sandwich panels. Glazing sections have UV resistant seals for insulation and weathertightness and are adaptable all types of doors, roll-up walls, and insect / bird protection.
Glazing systems can be supplied with standard 2-3 pane roof window ventilation, complete opening roof, or any system on the market through our Dutch supply partners.
4mm glass is widely used in commercial glasshouses and is tempered for added safety and strength.
VLT stands for Visible Light Transmitted and is the percentage of visible light transmitted through the glass when the sun shines at right angles to the surface of the glass. The higher the VLT and light distribution, the higher the yield.
Here are some of the options we offer:
Used for greenhouses with high importance level (ie garden centres / research facilities) and requirements for high energy saving.
Typically 16mm double-walled acrylic sheet that is heat-insulating and highly weather-resistant with light transmittance of up to 91%.
