P.TRE has developed ad hoc solutions in order to be adaptable to the context in which the system is going to be installed. The gutter for vegetables can be profiled on site or cut in our warehouse and sent in pieces.
The profilation on site allows the customer to obtain gutter rows without any connection and grants the complete recover of the drainage water. The positioning operation takes less time than the installation of the gutter in pieces because the gutter is profiled to the exact requested length and is directly arranged into its supports.
P.TRE offers the gutter shipped in pieces for smaller projects or towns which may be hard to reach.
We have realized many projects throughout the world thanks to specific gutter shapes whose pieces are perfectly connectable. This option requires a longer installation process in view of a more moderate price.
There are several types of gutter supports, depending on the greenhouse structure into which they are going to be installed.
If the greenhouse has a load-bearing structure, the gutter can be hung to it; while adjustable supports can be positioned into the ground if the structure cannot hold the weight of the system.
The hanging system is faster to install and easier to use. It can be considered the best solution in case the gutter is positioned into a strong load-bearing structure. The gutter will be hung by using hooks, ropes or chains.
The hanging system also allows to take the best advantage of the space and does not foresee any support to the ground, making the cleaning and planting operation easier.
If the structure of the greenhouse is not load-bearing, the gutter is held by adjustable supports to the ground. The height of these supports can be modified thanks to threaded bars.
Hooks and accessories complete the system to hold the stems of the plants and the irrigation/heating pipes.
