Building envelopes and air movement are standardized in many industrial building types but are still evolving in the CEA industry. Designers and growers who take them for granted will suffer crop problems that will be very hard to retrofit a solution for. Uniform air distribution across greenhouses and, in particular, within layers of a vertical farm is still an engineering challenge. Tightly sealed cultivation rooms are required for air pressure balancing. Greenhouse construction historically has not been sealed well enough to resist insect penetration. Learn about the newest research in the movement of conditioned air at proper flow and uniformity. Understand the use of vestibules and pressurized rooms for insect and spore exclusion. Be certain you are choosing the greenhouse coverings that provide the best of balance light transmission, tight seal, security and insulative value for your company’s needs.
