Noble Research Greenhouse-East Range-Ardmore, OK
Project Completed in 2002 & 2003

Contains 9 each, 60’ wide cells with service corridor, pad and fan cooling, overhead heat, motorized shade and blackout systems, high pressure sodium lights, rolling benches and double insect screening. 8mm Polygal twin wall sheets in aluminum extrusions on an Agra Tech galvanized steel frame. Managed with Argus Controls, in floor service trenches for piping. Floor drains for each individual cell, all with concrete floors. Completed in 2002 and 2003. West range under construction to left.

 
 
 

View in one of 9 east research cells with roof blackout system deployed over rolling bench frames. Sidewall system still rolled up before dropping to block out all daylight. PL high pressure sodium lighting overhead. Convection tube from Fanjet overhead to distribute air. Completed in 2002 & 2003

 
 

View down central service corridor of 9 research cells with overhead insect screening (double roof vents abovethis screen in greenhouse peak with additional screens at vent intake). Special insect screen panels over motorized shutters covering cooling pads on both left and right side of corridor. Aspirated sensors for Argus controller hanging overhead and Modine hot water unit heaters to warm service corridor. 8mm twin wall on sidewall into cells. Completed in 2002 & 2003
