Powerplants wants to make life easier for our growers. There is no need to waste valuable time opening and closing vents, rollup walls or shade screens. We can automate everything that opens and shuts in your greenhouse.

Dutch company De Gier is one of the largest manufacturers of high quality Greenhouse Drive Systems in the world. Almost all of their parts are interchangeable with Ridder components, and together they are the world standard.

  • Automates vents, rollup walls or shade screens

“We have improved our ventilation significantly with the use of De Gier racks, pinions and motors in our glasshouse.”

Older greenhouses can often be easily ventilated with rollup walls in the sidewalls or in the vertical walls above the gutters in sawtooth’ designs. We can provide Tube-motors that fit inside the rollup tube. For longer walls, we stock the GXP10 from De Gier which can roll up to 100 metre long walls.

We can also provide motors and gearboxes that can handle up to 180 metre length walls.

Good climate control requires vent position accuracy of 1%. The most accurate and reliable way to open and close vents is with a Rack & Pinion system. We stock a large range of parts for lifting windows mounted in the roof of the greenhouse. We can help you design and even install them for you. Rack & Pinion Drive ensures stress-free operation of your vents. We also stock parts for direct and indirect vent drive systems.

Being the largest Thermal Screen installer in Australia, we have all the parts you need to install your own shading systems, from Cable Drive Systems, to the most reliable Rack & Pinion Drive Systems.

We stock a large range of De Gier drive components and Shading System components at competitive prices. As always, our trained technicians can support you with whatever system you have.
