Semi-automatic greenhouse roof washer

In the semi-automatic version of the Roofmaster control takes place via a touchscreen. Settings such as the start and end time or the number of rows to be washed are clearly displayed and easily adjusted.

Wash greenhouse cover

When you give the start signal to the roof washer via the touchscreen, the water pump starts and the system starts washing the greenhouse roof. If a roof is clean, the Roofmaster automatically moves to the next one via the service rail. This continues until the set program is completed.

From smartphone

One of the advantages of a semi-automatic greenhouse roof washer compared to the manual version is the practical app. With this you can easily operate the Roofmaster from your smartphone or tablet. With this remote access function you always have control at hand and you do not need to be present at the Roofmaster yourself.
