The back panel of the Germination Station will automatically open when the temperature becomes too warm and close as temperatures cool, no electricity required. The vent operates by a combination of waxes that expands and contracts with the fluctuation of temperature. The automatic opener is attached to the back panel and is independent of the access through the lid in the front.  This allows the lid to be opened for watering, harvesting, and manual venting (with six locking vent positions) without disconnecting the automatic vent. The automatic opener will require about 12" of unobstructed space on the back side to open.

The protection of a Cedar Cold Frame allows your plants to withstand high winds, cooler temperatures, and heavy rain or hail. Start your seeds early, harden off your seedlings, and extend your growing season through the fall into the winter.  Our cold frames are constructed with Western Red Cedar for its rot/pest/UV resistance, corrugated polycarbonate because its durable and UV resistant ( stays clear for up to 20 years ) and the corrugated pattern allows the material to be more flexible , galvanized and stainless steel fasteners to add to the longevity. The use of galvanized roofing screws with neoprene washers with a seamless polycarbonate lid prevents water from getting to the wood framing. For convenient temperature control, there are six locking vent adjustments when open and latches to secure the lid when closed.
