Automatic vent for greenhouse window

Monday, May 12th, 2014

A really useful thing to have – ideal for those not able to be on hand to open the greenhouse window when the sun comes out!

Simple to fit, needs only basic DIY skills
Designed to last many seasons

Protects your plants automatically from the worst heat damage that can occur in an unventilated greenhouse

When the sun comes out temperatures can soar in your greenhouse. You should open the window to help heat escape and stop the plants baking! This comes with many new greenhouses but if it doesn’t then it’s not hugely expensive and will give you peace of mind that your plants will get ventilation even if you’re not able to be there to open the window.
