Traditional A-Frame Style Greenhouse

The Vail is the undisputed workhorse of the Prospiant family, combining high-performance strength and unmatched versatility in one multi-purpose package. This tough greenhouse has a variety of uses for crop production, retail, shipping, headhouses, and more. It is also durable enough to handle high wind, heavy snow loads, and even seismic activity, giving you the peace of mind that your crops have the best protection possible.

Versatility at Its Best

  • Maximize crop space: Taller gutter heights provide plenty of clearance for any type of crop or overhead equipment. Opt for high-clearance trusses to gain more overhead space or to accommodate overhead/oversized doors.
  • Create climate zones: Optional partition walls available to easily section off zones with interior walls.
  • Convert to a headhouse: Seamlessly add metal decking and insulated metal coverings.
  • Enhance airflow: Optional atrium roof vent, single or double roof venting
  • Versatile covering options: Flexibility of using polycarbonate, glass, acrylic, metal
  • Adapt to your needs: Accommodates various ventilation styles, growing systems, shade systems, and heating and cooling systems.

Strength at Its Finest

  • Built for resilience: Meets regional wind and snow and seismic load requirements for building permits.
  • Crafted to endure: Triple-galvanized U.S. square steel for strength and longevity. Aluminum extrusions and flashing for a long-lasting clean finish.
  • Fortified for weight: Supports overhead equipment, hanging baskets, heat pipe, fire suppression, and irrigation needs.
