The Agra Tech Sawtooth Greehouse is a low profile single slope truss. Heated air travels up the roof slope away from the plants.
The two biggest advantages of the Sawtooth design are that it is easy to install exhaust fans mid-house in the vertical wall above the gutter and that it is designed with columns that can continue through the roof to attach an energy truss outfitted with an exterior curtain.
With a vent or opening wall on the windward sidewall and vent on leeward roof, excellent natural ventilation is achieved for happier plants and reduced cooling costs.
"We have worked with Agra Tech and Ag-Con previously, so we’re very comfortable with both companies and know we’ll be getting some of the best service available,” Farris explained. “In fact, Agra Tech has built all of the greenhouses we have here currently, except for the original one that was built back in the 1940s. Working with the Pound family and Jim Bergantz our ATI rep, not to mention all of the amazing folks in their office–it is great to be working with some of the finest and smartest people in the industry today."
