THE NEXUS BRIGHT SKY GLASS SYSTEM:

  • The Bright Sky is a lapped glass greenhouse designed to do just what its name implies … a bright greenhouse with high light levels.
  • By using a Nexus engineered extrusion system specifically designed for the Bright Sky house we were able to increase the light levels by spreading the bars apart and using wider glass lights.
  • The glazing bars are efficiently designed and use less aluminum than many traditional glass bars and still meet U.S. snow and wind loads required for permitting.
  • The trusses and purlins of the Bright Sky are also designed to allow maximum light transmittance.
  • The wider roof purlin spacing decreases the shadow lines enhancing the light levels even more. By using longer lites to correspond with the purlin spacing the glass laps are hidden and contribute to the Bright environment. 
  • The Bright Sky provides a great environment for propagation or other crops that need high light levels and a bright future.

THE BRIGHT SKY DESIGN SAVES YOU TIME & MONEY:

  • Nexus Bright Sky trusses are one-piece and factory welded using galvanized steel to offer consistency in dimension and construction.  We ship fewer individual parts providing a cost savings during construction.
  • Construction time is further reduced during glazing. By using the larger lites of the Bright Sky less time is needed to install the roof glazing. 
  • It is designed to support overhead equipment and hanging baskets.

DESIGN GIVES YOU THE FLEXIBILITY YOU NEED:

  • Shade/Energy curtains are a common element of a Bright Sky house giving owners the flexibility to vary light levels for different crops or retain the passive heat gained during the day to decrease the heat requirements at night.
  • Mechanically cooled or Natural ventilation with Atrium vents ... your choice.
  • Taller gutter heights allow ample clearance for any crop or piece of mechanical equipment.  
  • You can also partition walls to create separate climate zones.
