Smart and advanced greenhouse gutters for the horticultural industry
We make your greenhouse gutter profiles with the properties and features you ask for. These include:
- Inline drilling of holes for pots
- End covers or end cups welded by ultrasound
- Bending of drip noses at the end of the line
- RFID tags to capture and send growing data
Customisation makes it easier and quicker for you to get operational. And it gives you the peace of mind that your plants are growing in optimal conditions.
Greenhouse gutters for optimum growth
The living lettuce / head lettuce system
.. is being produced with drilled holes for pots.
The gutters are designed for growing head lettuces and herbs that are sold with their root ball in a pot or as cut head lettuce.
Baby leaf production
.. is grown in open gutters with turf or wool.
Primo’s greenhouse gutters for baby leaf lettuce, herbs and small head lettuces are optimized for growing plants that are sold as cut lettuce.
Our gutters incorporate the Hydroponic Nutrient Film Technique (NFT). The NFT uses irrigation water efficiently and recirculates unused water.
The NFT consumes up to 95% less water compared to conventional field farming.
In addition, as it is a closed system, there is no run-off of fertilizer water into the ground.
Gutters for every application
Redesigned and more sustainable gutters
Our redesigned gutter serves a specific purpose. It makes use of gutters that would otherwise be unusable due to damage or age. These gutters are transformed into a new raw material from which a new gutter can be made.
You can choose the colour of the inner layer of the gutter. On the other hand, the outer layer is deliberately white. This ensures optimum light reflection back into the greenhouse, which benefits plant growth.
THE EXTRUSION PROCESS
The various types of plastics all have different structures that determine their properties, like rigid or soft, flexible, and so on. These characteristics, and their combinations, are limited only by the imagination.
Reshaping products and igniting innovation in polymer extrusion.
Engaged customers, from designers to engineers, fuel meaningful discussions. Our shared material language combines their needs with our expertise, refining plastic profiles for optimum results.
