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.
