DAS ALUMINIUM-GEWÄCHSHAUS IN ÖSTERREICH
Construction: Standard types have not yet been developed in Austria. The present greenhouses comprise a great variety in size and construction, including large clear span houses.
Experience: Light weight combined with high stability and a corrosion resistant surface of aluminium alloy present some decisive advantages with regard to construction and management, plant growth and plant hygiene. Among the few disadvantages condensation presents a certain problem.
Future aspects: The up-to-date experience with aluminium greenhouses in some public plants opens new aspects for a wide acceptance of aluminium alloy construction for commercial growers in Austria.
