Thanks to recent changes in legislation, the growth of the cannabis industry has been explosive. Estimates report that the industry will even overshadow established industries in terms of economic impact. With state-by-state changes occurring, many cannabis growing facilities are emerging across the country and internationally.
Cannabis grow rooms, or greenhouses—many with vertical, soil-free hydroponic gardens– are driving a need for large temperature- and humidity-controlled indoor environments that can support production of a variety of cannabis-infused products.

Owners have many decisions to make regarding how and where their greenhouse or grow room will operate. Regardless of facility type, installing sanitary, moisture-tolerant flooring is a must. And having the appropriate level of light reflectivity in the floor finish can make all the difference. For many crops, reflective floor surfaces can help plants increase photosynthesis and contribute to better crop outcomes. At the same time, glossy floors can increase the effect of overhead lighting to the point of reducing the need for additional fixtures, helping to reduce costs and energy consumption.
