The Thermolator is one of our most popular quonset greenhouses, aka Tunnel. Growers have successfully built thousands of Thermolator greenhouses / tunnels since 1980. The Thermolator boasts the best value per square foot of all our greenhouses as it can be used for practically all crops.
The Thermolator comes in standard width of 35'. The Thermolator 35 is widely used by many tomato transplant growers.
The code Thermolator 35 has 8' sidewalls. The Non Code Thermolator 35 comes in 5' or 6' sidewalls. The tall sidewall configuration allows full use of the span and the sidewalls may be equipped with either roll-up walls or dropwalls for convenient access to crops from both sides (often used by transplant growers).
Agra Tech's Thermolator 35 Non Code is a light weight, wide span arch offering maximum square feet of ground covered for the dollar. It is for use in non-snow areas.

Sunridge Nurseries is excited to announce that it has embarked on an expansion project that will increase their overall production area by an additional 7 acres of greenhouses and shade houses. These state of the art, Agra-Tech solar light ranges will come equipped with the latest technologies in greenhouse climate and irrigation controls. By incorporating higher gutter heights, ridge roof vents and internal shade curtains, coupled with energy efficient double wall polycarbonate coverings, we expect to shorten our crop time on potted grafted vines and do it with fewer energy inputs. Other features include the addition of HAF fans and light diffusion in the polycarbonate coverings which will allows us to grow at higher crop densities without sacrificing plant quality.
The expansion project will increase our overall capacity by 2 million potted vines under a protected insect free environment. This, along with all concrete flooring and roadways throughout the entire project and our continued use of all metal benching, will help to provide for a more disease free growing area. The ability to wash down benches, floors and walkways with disinfectants both before and after vines move thru the facility is a critical step in keeping the vines free of unwanted diseases.
