Professional growers have long known the benefits of consistent Horizontal Air Flow (HAF) within the plant canopy in greenhouses. Credible research indicates that sufficient Horizontal Air Flow within the plant canopy, helps maximize plant yield, quality and sustainability. (Watch for new research data and reports which will be posted periodically on our “News” page) Zurich® Adjustable Fan-Mounts can help provide the necessary Horizontal Air Flow within the plant canopy and achieve maximum greenhouse plant production and desirability. The Zurich patented design allows the height of most standard 12” and 16” wall fans to be quickly and easily adjusted along with the rising plant canopy height, [...]
Our highly anticipated Smartphone-Operated, Adjustable Fan-Mount is coming soon! Volume growers will greatly benefit from the ease and efficiency of our new model. With the press of a button on your Smartphone, up to 100 fans may be raised or lowered simultaneously in just seconds! We expect to roll these out the first of the coming year. Stay tuned for more information.
Before HAF systems were developed, it was common to find 10 ° F to 15 ° F difference in nighttime temperature between the opposite ends of a greenhouse. Plant growth and quality often reflected this. Today with a properly installed HAF system, there should be no more than 2 ° F difference anywhere in the greenhouse. Understanding the basics The HAF concept utilizes the principle that air that moves in a coherent horizontal pattern in a building like a greenhouse needs only enough energy to overcome turbulence and friction loss to keep it moving. In other words, you just have to "kick it along." Air [...]
