The purpose of a greenhouse is to create a production space that will optimize the climate and, therefore, the crop.
To achieve this goal, Filclair has developed yet another innovation: for the first time in the history of the greenhouse, fluid mechanics software has been applied to the design of structure forms. The era of C.A.G.D (Computer-Assisted Greenhouse Design) has now become a reality. This C.A.G.D program has given rise to the new MULTICLAIR Gothic Arch greenhouse: the AÉRO 9600.
Aerodynamics The AÉRO 9600 has been derived from a traditional MULTICLAIR Gothic Arch, which is already renowned for its excellent climatic qualities, but has a considerably flatter arch. The much more aerodynamic profile of the AÉRO 9600, combined with the geometry of the vent panels and their positioning, offers this greenhouse the highest level of performance on the market in terms of agronomics.
Agronomic Qualities The advent of C.A.G.D heralds the end of 40 years of empirical greenhouse design. Greenhouse performances are no longer merely evaluated on the tangible criteria of its resistance to climatic loads alone, but also and, above all, on its agronomic qualities. The optimization of the volume of the AÉRO 9600, the new contour of its arch and the power of the aeration systems, produce top level performances in terms of relative humidity, temperature and light, thus creating almost perfect bioclimates.
INRA Support The partnership with the PSH (Plants and Garden Cropping Systems) unit of the INRA (The French National Institute for Agricultural Research) - backed by ANVAR (The French Agency for Innovation) - has objectively corroborated the design decisions taken for the AÉRO 9600, by simulating complex climatic conditions. The broad scope of the studies then jointly conducted with our R&D department, and the influence of the Institute in this field, offers users an indisputable guarantee of quality.
