Our Small Business models have been specifically designed to suit the temperate climate zones of Australia. They are perfect for growing seasonal strains of gourmet mushrooms with the added warmth of an installed infra-red heater for the cooler months. With functionality and performance as the driving intention behind its creation each of these small business models are installed with an innovative air cleaning system that provides increased productivity.
The Small Business models are perfect for any location throughout Australia* with the addition of our specifically designed and engineered heating and cooling unit that works hand in hand with the components of our other small business model inclusions, resulting in optimal growing and climatic conditions for your mushroom business.
Each of the Small Business Model grow rooms will be installed for you by a professional cool & hot room builder. The installation site is required to have a solid foundation such as a concrete slab allowing approx 150mm surrounding the footprint of the grow room. To ensure we address any requirements prior to your scheduled install, we would ask that photos of your existing surface are forwarded to your NMN Resource Manager prior to installation date.
Our grow rooms are made from 75mm thick insulated sandwich panels, resulting in easy cleaning and durability. This high quality insulation maintains a stable and optimized climate, reducing electricity costs, and producing more reliable yields.*Positioning the room undercover, in a well shaded area or under a shade cloth is recommended as it will help to maintain the internal temperatures and humidity at suitable ranges.
The electrical wiring and climate control equipment will be installed by a certified electrician and is powered by a single 10A plug via extension lead - it MUST be connected to an outlet protected by a Safety Switch (if a new safety switch is required to be installed, the additional cost is estimated at $350). Please advise your NMN Resource Manager whether a safety switch installation is required at the time of the installation booking.
As with all our grow room models, as an NMN member you will be provided with support in understanding how to work with your seasons and growing mushrooms suited to the current temperatures and climate to utilise the rooms’ efficiency providing best yields.
