With a consultative design process, our clients have control over all aspects of the growth room; from custom dimensions and the look of the exterior shell, to the internal fit out and whether there is single sided shelving or double sided divided by a centre aisle. Our clients have the opportunity to build a totally customised controlled environment solution to suit the precise requirements and specifications of the entire research project’s life cycle.


  • Steel super structure with 100mm insulated panels with reflective interior, including the floor.
  • Controlled ventilation ports – fresh air intake and exhaust ports.
  • Observation window.
  • Door size.
  • Ramp access.
  • Interior safety release, including vacuum release.

External Dimensions (H X W X D)
Multiple dimensions available

Internal Dimensions (H X W X D)

Multiple volumes available

Temperature Range (°C)
-3°C to 43°C with all lights off and all lights. Redundancy measures incorporated into the air conditioning system and multiple refrigeration and
heating options available.

Temperature Stability
+/- 0.5°C

Temperature Uniformity
+/- 1°C

Humidity Range (% RH)

+/- 2% RH

Air Distribution

  • Air Flow – ducted ventilation system for vertical downward, near uniform, air flow.
  • Fan Speed – Adjustable from 60% to 100% (85% or higher is recommended as temperature gradients increase at lower fan speeds)
  • Fresh Air – Filtered fresh air with a manually adjustable vent: 2.8m³/min
    Internal air mixing is also possible.


  • Multiple lighting options from cool-white fluorescent to the most recent LEDs.
  • Intensities from 0 – 2600 µmol m-2 s-1.
  • Lights located on the ceiling or independent light canopies situated on each tier.
  • All light canopies are controllable and dimmable, with customisable intensities and spectrums available for day time and seasonal replication.

Power Supply
220/380-3Ø-50Hz (120/208-3Ø-60Hz)

Growth Area (m²)
0.75m² or 0.9m² per shelf. Number of shelves dependent on chamber volume and multiple shelving configurations are available.

Gas Monitoring

  • Gas Monitoring and Control of Oxygen (O2) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as standard (additional gases can be added optionally). Gases are measured by internal Aura-FX probes.
  • MineARC scrubbing technology including Marcisorb CO2 cartridges can reduce the carbon dioxide level within the system to below 250ppm (0.025%) and a plenum CO2 additive systems can be included with an adjustable flow rate.


  • GuardIAN Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Control System for real-time remote monitoring, data logging, alarms and push notifications via email and text message.
  • Ethernet and WiFi connectivity.
  • User friendly15” touch screen HMI Control Panel.
  • Fan speed, fresh air intake and exhaust ports controlled by GuardIAN. Can also be manually overridden.


  • A number of security access solutions are available, including an electric smart key lockable door with PIN code or swipe access.
  • Internal & External IP cameras installed for both security and remote chamber monitoring
  • Internal temperature, humidity and pressure sensors.

Quality Control

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) & Inverter: Power redundancy to protects the controller and control circuit from momentary loss of power.
  • Quality Standard: ISO 9001:2008 certified company
  • Warehouse Diagnostics & Testing: full system tests conducted with our clients at our warehouse before on-site installation.

Installation & Training

  • Semi-modular chamber with forklift and crane access points, allowing for ease of transport & minimal onsite installation.
  • Commissioning on-site.
  • Manuals: Controller manual, operation & maintenance manual, and electrical schematics provided.
  • Training: On-site training on the controller, electrical, and refrigeration system by a qualified MineARC technician.
