E.01 Structural Wind Protection

Structural Wind ProtectionWindbreaks can make your greenhouses easier to heat and cool. Windy conditions can often double the amount of fuel needed to heat a greenhouse or nursery structure. Properly designed windbreaks have been shown in soiree cases to cut structural heating and cooling costs by as much as 10 to 40 percent. By reducing the force of wind on the exterior surface of your structure, a windbreak can greatly reduce the heat convection properties of cold winds. In areas with hot, dry winds, windbreaks can reduce the summertime cost of cooling your greenhouse. PAK structural windbreaks not only help shield your structure from wind stress, but they improve sanitary conditions by reducing wind driven dust and dirt. PAK structural windbreaks are made of heavy duty. UV resistant polypropylene fabric with a 40% to 60% sStructural Wind Protectionscreening capability, depending on your local wind conditions.
