Growing cannabis in a cost effective manner and efficiently are shown in several growing facilities that are increasingly established ever since recreational cannabis was legalized in California in January 2018. At the start, medical marijuana are mostly based in facilities and are occupying in old buildings, but later on more and more entrepreneurs are joining the wagon in this kind of business. Due to this situation, new facilities are constructed with the need for new equipment.
In order to get yields in a maximum manner, some pre-existing medical marijuana facilities reached out and looked for some new methods in growing solution where vertical space is being utilized. Fortunately, there are teams specializing in systems and space design where maximizing space is their forte that answered to this call. Since the solution was the first one about multi-tiered growing, the whole development process was a learning experience for both clients and space and design teams.Taking 5 months of straight completion, a vertical solution was designed by the team after giving several considerations of lighting, irrigation, ventilation, plant height requirements and other factors.
To solve customized storage solutions, several companies are offering products that can be applied to almost any conditions. There is a company to serve as an example for many years that has been a strong place holder in areas like museums, libraries, hospitals, public safety and military markets. With the coming in of cannabis market as their clients, their systems planners are faced with challenges on how to create a system to serve the needs of this new clientele with products involving living things.
When building a vertical shelving structure in order to grow cannabis, there are challenges that have to be considered. Since these factors have to be incorporated with each other, it is good to know what are these concerns.
The number one challenge is in the placement of lighting where installation should be above right under the shelving section. The ventilation is found to be installed rightly under the shelving section and above. Note that the spectrum in techniques of growing hydroponic or aeroponic to various soil mediums could vary substantially. Whether the case is one or the other, one can place trays between support beams or pots on top of a wide span shelving. In order for the vertical space to accommodate various height strains, shelves are made adjustable to meet the preference of the growers.
The space saver multi-tiered high density movable vertical systems offered in this company can be used in other types of indoor farming for restaurants and others, aside from the use in the cannabis market.
