Commercial Greenhouse North Slope

Product Description:

The North Slope is designed to shed snow and allow maximum light into the greenhouse for Northern climates.  We have found that its generous Gothic peak makes it easy to cool with natural ventilation so that it excels in mild to hot climates as well.  The North Slope is a commercial grade quonset for Agricultural use / high tunnel greenhouse.  The North Slope's Gothic arch design has no flat spots on the roof making it stronger and drip less than most.

Client's Testimonial

They were terrific. I guess I pretty much dealt with everyone there at Agra Tech at some point. Everyone was super friendly and really helpful. Jim Bergantz was a great proprietor on this project and he got back to us promptly every time. Anita Pound and James Roberts, their technical guy, was exceptional. They have so much knowledge and they’ve been doing this for so long that that working with them was a no-brainer.
