X-Frame Retractable Roof Greenhouse And Shadehouse (Cravo)
The X-Frame is a low-cost retractable roof house that is ideal for protecting outdoor growing areas of perennials, bedding plants, vegetables, and berries from excessive cold, heat, hail, wind, and rain. The roof is supported from rods instead of trusses. Water drains to the valley in the roof and then falls to the ground unless optional gutters are installed. It can withstand 120 kph winds with the roof and walls closed, and can handle significant snow or hail loads.
