Yesterday we acquired a name from a buyer in Georgia. He had purchased some cheap gentle weight coldframes to save cash just a few years in the past, not pondering he needed to fear about snow. As he walked via the blowing storm with some workers to clear the snow he watched the buildings one after the other collapse underneath the load. (He warned that gentle buildings collapse so quick underneath load, that clients needs to be warned to train excessive warning when making an attempt to take away snow. Do not enter the construction if it seems to be dangerous!)
One day later GGS is in full manufacturing offering a fast turnaround for a grower in want. Seven GGS Freestanding greenhouses will present cowl for crop underneath the collapsed coldframes.
GGS rolling arches to supply growers stronger greenhouses to face up to uncommon snow.
“This time of year we often get calls from customers who had lighter weight greenhouses collapse in the snow. GGS has a well-earned reputation for providing top quality greenhouse structures.” stated Michael Camplin, GGS Sales Manager.
Weather patterns are altering, and areas that aren’t used to worrying a few greenhouse’s snow load, like Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Louisiana are discovering paying a bit extra for a heavy Northern designed greenhouse is one of the best funding you may make.
“Some greenhouse growers call it greenhouse insurance” stated Leigh Coulter when requested in regards to the worth of shopping for a northern greenhouse for areas that usually don’t have a lot snowfall. “The capital cost of a greenhouse with a snow load rating compared to one without is generally not significant when looking at the total cost of a new construction project including heating, irrigation, benching, environmental computer controls, etc.”
And Climate Change means extra excessive climate to return. Last yr on the finish of December Israel was hit with rain and snow, and harm to greenhouses resulted in lack of supply for Basil, Chives, and lots of different greenhouse grown herbs.
But it’s not simply heat climate nations and states which might be experiencing heavier winter snows. Last yr 47 Connecticut greenhouses reported damages of $20,000,000 as a result of excessive blizzard of February 2013. And right here we’re once more February 2014, with 22 states coping with the consequences of a lethal snowstorm, together with New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts, who have been hit by heavy snows last year as well.
“We have ramped up production of standard greenhouse parts to do our best for any greenhouse grower affected by the storm” Camplin stated. “Our sales team is knowledgeable about connecting GGS greenhouses to most other manufacturers’ structures, and we will work with growers to salvage what makes sense.”
GGS additionally has development crews obtainable to assist with elimination and rebuild.
We hope that all of our clients is heat, and residential, and secure.
