There are several ways to customize your SteelMaster Quonset Hut grow house. We offer a variety of parts and accessories that will help create the best environment for the growing process.
Insulation is one of the most important accessories for grow houses, especially for buildings located in areas with high humidity and warm temperatures. This is because insulation keeps growing environments airtight and free of condensation.
Condensation can be a major problem in buildings made with steel. Insulated metal buildings are protected by a vapor barrier that reduces the amount of condensation inside of the structure. Insulating a metal building in a colder climate will protect it from condensation caused by exposure to ice and frost. Those who live in warmer climates want to reduce the heat that caused by solar radiation.
When you’re comparing different kinds of insulation, it’s important to be mindful of the option with the highest R-Value, which is the power to prevent heat transfer, as well as its permeability, which determines how susceptible your building will be to condensation. There are several types of insulation, including loose-fill, blanket insulation or spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation is one of the most common because it fills every space of the Quonset Hut, creating a great air barrier.
Ventilation is also important in grow houses, as the plants need fresh air intake to thrive. Vents are required to regulate air temperature, humidity and odor. Plus, bad air quality can hinder a plant’s ability to grow, which destroys its value.
SteelMaster’s louver vents are a cost effective solution for your indoor marijuana grow operation. Louver vents eliminate condensation and also maximize air circulation. These vents work especially well in warmer climates because they reduce the heat that builds up inside of the building. They are made to allow nothing but air to flow through them, which means birds and insects are kept outside.
Sunlight encourages leaf and stem production in marijuana plants. SteelMaster’s skylights allow plenty of natural light into your structure. Light will shine into your building at three different angles, which disperses the light three times better than a conventional flat panel skylight.
Our skylights are designed with a flat bottom, v-shaped corrugation that will match the steel panels of your building. To install the skylight, simply replace an existing roof panel with one of the skylight panels.
SteelMaster’s skylights are resistant to high winds, small flying debris and dangerous hail. If you’re interested in adding skylights, consult your SteelMaster project manager to determine the best locations inside of your building to install the panels.
