MATCHING OUTDOOR CONDITIONS:

  • The roof vent vertically opens to 85 degrees.
  • With individual motors you have zone opening ability allowing you total flexibility in cooling and venting.
  • Fewer obstructions than other full open roof style structures leading to higher light levels.
  • Total versatility for all crops at all stages.
  • Temperatures are within 1 degree of fully open roofs with significant reduction in cost and maintenance.
  • The roof can close in less than three minutes. 

VENTING IN INCLEMENT WEATHER:

  • The patented Nex-Hood allows you partial roof opening in inclement weather.
  • Able to open vent with snow in the valley.

EXPECTED NEXUS STRENGTH:

  • The double tooth steel racks give you added strength at crucial stress points in windy conditions, and longer life than aluminum racks.
  • The Nexus unique in-house roof extrusion design gives you the needed strength and heavier extrusions for North American conditions.  Competitive European designs do not meet U.S. snow and wind loads.
  • Our in-house licensed engineering staff has designed a structure whose quality is consistent with all Nexus structures and is compatible with all Nexus style structures.

SAVE MONEY AND MAINTENANCE:

  • Growers using the Nexus Atrium have experienced reduced need for chemical and growth regulators.
  • Growers have reduced operating costs by minimizing the need for use of cooling equipment.
  • Up to 75% less rack & pinions with 75% less motors than other open roof style structures, leading to lower initial cost, less maintenance and lower energy consumption.
  • Up to 70% less gutters than full open roof style structures leading to lower initial costs meaning less shadows and less condensation points.
