Just like wooden greenhouses, greenhouses made of metal should have an entry pouch for disinfection. They also need to be properly ventilated, with a side roll up system which can be closed depending on the weather. Inside the side roll up is an insect net that allows air in and also prevent entry of pests. They may have a gutter system for rain water collection especially if they are joined together.
