Sprung has extensive experience providing reliable, engineered tension membrane structure solutions for greenhouses. Airtight enclosures, clear-span designs and framed openings are just some of the innovative solutions that Sprung offers growers around the world. Our greenhouse structures use a custom greenhouse membrane for ideal transparency and refraction, or opaque membranes for more controlled growing environments. Sprung has lease and purchase options that provide cost-effective solutions for greenhouses of any size.

Greenhouse – Natural Light

Our highly translucent greenhouse membrane creates an ideal growing environment with a little help from mother nature:

Translucent Membrane
  • Diffused lighting eliminates shadowing
  • Translucency allows for natural solar gain heating
  • 10 year pro rata guarantee
  • Water and mildew resistant
  • Exceptional fire-retardant capabilities
  • High strength rip stop design
  • Available in translucent white

Greenhouse – Light Deprivation

Our light deprived growing solution provides a number of benefits:

Insulation of Light Deprived Greenhouse
Renewable plant based fiberglass insulation enveloped by an exterior and interior membrane.
  • Completely controlled environment
  • Double membrane layer complete with insulation
  • Extreme air tightness
  • High thermal values (up to R-30)
  • Fire retardant and mildew resistant
  • 15 / 25 year membrane guarantee (pro rata)

Technological advances in heating and cooling are now easily incorporated to significantly reduce cost.

ARK  Cooling System
(for natural light greenhouses)

The Cooling System is an evaporative cooling technology developed specifically by ARK for the Sprung Structure. This patented solution has proven to cool the interior of the greenhouse during summer months between 6°C and 15°C (3.4 °F -22°F) cooler than external temperatures.

Sprung Greenhouses are Sustainable

Sustainability includes zero waste going to landfill, 100% recyclable aluminum, LEED Certifiable, CSR and Green Circle Certified insulation.

5 Top Reasons to Choose Sprung

  1. Immediate Delivery from Inventory – Fabric tensioned structures can complete projects in a much shorter time-frame than conventional construction.
  2. Engineered for Even the Most Extreme Climates – Enjoy peace of mind: Sprung structures are engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions.
  3. Limited to No Foundation Requirements – Structures can be easily anchored to existing asphalt or raw earth.
  4. Airtight – Air tightness within a Sprung structure can be said to be almost zero due to the type of wall construction used. The entire building structure has been specifically designed to prevent air flow while maintaining strong structural integrity.
  5. Lease with Option to Purchase – Increase your cash flow savings with Sprung’s convenient in-house leasing program.
