Greenhouse / shade house equipment/materials

Recommended Posts

Hi.  Looking for a supplier for plastic sheets (roof) and insect proof netting for the sides of greenhouse. Particular looking for the channel with the Z wires, they are fixed to the greenhouse frame which then secure the plastic and netting. I understand most DIY stores have plastic sheeting and netting. However it’s either too thin, or the netting holes are too big to stop insects. Appreciate if anyone has knowledge of a supplier for this type of material

We managed to source a greenhouse supplier in Bangkok. Ordered the .200 micron plastic, 32 mesh size insect netting and the channel with the Z wire. Delivery on Tuesday 😁😁. Now can finish the project 👍👍

Using this kind of mesh netting was able to successfully grow tomatoes in Hawaii in the cooler months. No white fly and fruit fly problems, no spraying. This was a commercial operation, I was a farm hand. Biggest problem was the occasional severe wind storm. Good luck.

Looks like you've gone to a great deal of trouble to build your greenhouse and it looks great. The best of luck with whatever your planning to grow in it. Last year I bought 'ridged plastic sheeting' from a local building supply firm, which came in 6m lengths. This was used to replace the green horticultural netting on top of my 6m x 6m car port and I was very pleasantly surprised as to how much heat it keeps off the vehicle underneath whilst still letting lots of light through, and of course it now makes it waterproof whilst allowing good air circulation around the vehicle.

A few pictures of the finished greenhouse. Installed some cool mist sprayers inside to help control the temperature. These are controlled by a 12v solenoid valve and a 20 times a day on/off timer switch.

Looks great. Steel structure made by local thai supplier?

How much in total cost for this greenhouse?

Is the black fitting a water filter?

Yes, it’s a 120 mesh screen filter. We use water from our well bore, and occasionally get small grains of sand in it. The cool mist sprayers have a very fine jets, so would easily block up with any sand partials
