Retrac™ - Retractable Roofing

Retrac™ is the greenhouse re-imagined. It provides growers with the ability to open up and access the best of nature, as well as the flexibility of covering up to protect against its worst. It’s the perfect solution for those looking to have a higher level of control over weather conditions, crop production and yields.

Developed by Apex Greenhouses, the system incorporates decades of greenhouse design experience, and utilises robust greenhouse structures, applying them to a retractable system.

Featuring a modular design, the Retrac system means that unlike many other products on the market, multiple greenhouses can fit side-by-side, maximising every inch of growing space. No messy cable systems! Featuring a modular design, the Retrac system means that unlike many other products on the market, multiple greenhouses can fit side-by-side, maximising every inch of growing space.

Other key features of the Retrac system include:

  • Smart design meaning plastic film can be replaced quickly, safely and at low cost
  • The ability to customise film covering, even within a single greenhouse, depending on crop requirements
  • A unique design that makes the retrofit of current greenhouses a possibility
  • No wires under tension eliminating the risk of injury from damaged cables and maximising growing space
  • The retractable design makes it suitable for both plants and animals

The design of the system means it is easier to construct and significantly reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
