Several methods are accustomed to open the roof. Some producers make a roof that opens by rolling up the solitary or double layer of flexible Gearbox For Greenhouse plastic-type glazing that runs the space of the greenhouse bay. A small gear engine rotates a shaft that winds the plastic-type on to it such as a window shade.

Flat roof designs are used where there is small rain or snow. A-roof styles shed the rain and snow to an interior gutter system. Styles which will carry up to 35 lb/sq ft snow load and 100 mph wind loads can be found. The roof opens in sections by moving the industry leading of the curtain.
