CofealM JV (iron and aluminium structures) was founded in the Republic of Moldova in 2010, in order to support those citizens of the Republic of Moldova, who wanted to launch up their own business in the agriculture. CofealM JV is a branch of the famous Italian Company – Cofeal, with headquarters in Italy, Pavia de Udine, which has been present in the European market for more than 40 years and has a wide experience in permanent examination and assessment of new technologies for the purpose of continuous improvement of its structures.

About us

Cofealm offers a wide range of GREENHOUSES, which are perfectly built, equipped with the up-to-the-minute technologies and allow meeting the requirements of the most advanced agricultural developments in plant cultivation, flower growing and gardening.

Selected anti-corrosion materials (galvanised iron, aluminium, PVC profiles, etc.) of verified quality, imported directly from the European suppliers, are used for GREENHOUSE production.

The advantages of GREENHOUSE production by the autochthonous manufacturer Cofealm are the following:

  • Knowledge of the sales market and local climatic conditions, as well as of all main requirements to GREENHOUSE production
  • Flexibility in development of the optimal individual projects for GREENHOUSES of different types and dimensions, depending on the agricultural crop type, land plot relief (slopes, directions, wind and snow conditions, presence of water and communications, soil fertility, absence of polluted sources, etc.) and clients’ needs and potential
  • Prompt and efficient cooperation both in the course of production and mounting process, and in the course of servicing
  • Abidance by the European technologies:
  1. Metallic structure norm CEN-TC 284
  2. GREENHOUSE designing and construction norm EN-13031-1
  • Reinstallation and equipping of the existent greenhouses and metallic structures, and adjustment thereof to the up-to-date greenhouse facilities
  • The elements, which the COFEALM greenhouses are made of, are designed to be used in modules, so as to avoid the technical barriers for further extension of the structures, and at the same time to guarantee the facility resistance, rapidity and easiness of facility assembling and mounting
  • Use of specially designed aluminium and PVC profiles allows adjusting the COFEALM greenhouses to the roofing of any kind (films of any type, anti-insect shadow shields, polycarbonate films, polyester films, etc.) and using 2 (two) inflatable sheets at once, subject to tacit maintenance of the air-cushion pressure
  • Minimal time for analysis of design and production both of small greenhouses of various types (tunnel greenhouses, straight-wall greenhouses, inclined-wall greenhouses in the form of arch), storage hangars, hangars to protect the agricultural equipment, etc., as well as of greenhouse complexes for industrial use (‘block’ greenhouses)
  • Use of different ventilation systems and automation thereof, as well as protection thereof, using the wind and temperature sensors, and the climate control system

PRICE
The facility price depends on:
- type and destination of the facility (greenhouses of various types, block greenhouses, propagators, hydroponic greenhouses, etc.)
- dimensions of the facility and materials used, starting with standard structures having the width of 4.5 m and made of the tubes with a diameter of Ø 40 mm, up to the structures having the width of 10.0 m and made of the tubes with a diameter of Ø76 and Ø60 mm
- component elements of the facilities and automation thereof (apertures of different types, shields, protective materials, protective and automation systems, etc.)
- type of the roofing material and fixation technique
- land plot relief, direction of facility location and so on
In case of standard facilities, the preliminary calculations may be offered on the same day, upon customer’s request. The final calculations, which are optimal for your facility, will be made after land plot analysis, in conformity with the abovementioned clauses, subject to close cooperation with the customer and taking into account your options and opportunities.
Quality
Use of the materials of verified quality from the well-known European manufacturers, high-performance equipment, cutting dies and specially designed devices ensures a high precision in production of the component elements and, respectively, greenhouse and hangar facilities. Complex software meeting European greenhouse construction norm EN 13031-1 is used to develop the model design and technical documentation.  
The process of arch forming, through spinning and other processes of tube contouring with the help of cutting dies and devices, makes the material gain a higher resistance that improves its properties and increases the structure strength.
WARRANTY  
A long period of use of various greenhouses within different climatic zones both in Europe and in our country, dimensions of the areas covered by the greenhouses, minimal time for design and production analysis, abidance by the contractual timeframes, optimal price, flexible payments, abidance by the European greenhouse construction norms, and use of the certified raw materials and components from the European manufacturers points out that COFEALM Company does guarantee the quality (100%) of all its realised projects.               

Accesories

Springs

The springs having the width from 7.0 to 10.0 m is made of 2 semi-arches with a diameter of Ø60 mm and wall thickness of 1.5 mm. The metallic structure has an increased flexibility and does not load the facility, thus ensuring the required resistance. In case of smaller greenhouses, the springs may be made either of one piece, or of two semi-arches having a diameter of Ø40 mm and the same 2.0-mm width, as the support elements do.

Grids

The grids are the main elements of facility resistance. They may have up to 7 resistance diagonals with a diameter of Ø32 and Ø27 mm and may endure (carry) both wind and snow load, as well as a load due to plant hanging.

Draining channel

The draining channel not only ensures section fixture to the film and water gathering and drainage in case of shower rains but is also a crucial element in increase of facility resistance.

Gates

The gates are either composed of 1 or 2 extension-type units made of aluminium sections with a polycarbonate buffer cell or film, or may be manufactured of the tubes covered by the film.

Fixation of the polyethylene film

Fixation of the polyethylene film, anti-inspect shadow shields and thermal shields is realised with the help of aluminium sections of various types, clamping a double-layer or one-layer film through a PVC profile. Such sections ensure sealed-in, non-displaceable and easy-mounted fixation.

Roofing

The roofing may be made of two thin inflatable sheets that compose together an air cushion and tacitly maintain the air pressure. But the double-layer film ensures efficient heat insulation and reduces the heating energy consumption by 40% during the cold season. The processed waterproof and UV-resistant polyethylene film having a thickness of 200 mcm and producing the heat effects may be used more than for 5 years.

Clamps (clips)

Clamps (clips) ensure plain and economical fixation of the film to the tubes of different dimensions. They are made of plastic of or anti-corrosive metal having the specific elastic properties.

The star-shaped stretching mechanisms

The star-shaped stretching mechanisms ensure maximum film tension at the facility crests, thus extending the service life of the film and simplifying the mounting and use thereof.

Ventilation

            Ventilation is the main climate-control factor in the greenhouse and helps to reject excessive heat and moisture from the greenhouse, this, in its turn, ensuring the crop yield of an agricultural plant under protection.
The CofealM greenhouses have various ventilation systems:
- an aperture in the upper part of the greenhouse
- an aperture in the side and front parts
- opening windows in the front parts
- 2-level opening in the side parts, for high structures (7.0 to 8.0 m).
Such systems may be controlled either in an automated way with the help of a console, due to availability of a semi-automatic rain and wind sensor, using in each case the geared motors with arresting devices, or manually, allowing the air flows penetrating into the greenhouse.
