Why Choose a Polycarbonate Greenhouse

Mar 27, 2008
For many years now most people who have purchased a greenhouse will have one, which is made from aluminium and glass. Yet more and more people are choosing to purchase polycarbonate greenhouses in place of these more traditional types of ones. Certainly, there are a number of advantages to be gained from having a polycarbonate one rather than one that has glass in it and below we look at what some of these are.

1. You will find that a polycarbonate greenhouse is far better insulated and so the temperature levels are much easier to keep at a constant one at all times. This will then provide you as a grower a much better atmosphere in which the plants are able to grow and flourish.

2. Also using polycarbonate sheets rather than glass in a greenhouse means that the chances of you having to replace them is greatly reduced. This is because they are much stronger and are much more resistant to any kind of blow to them.

3. The sheets of polycarbonate that are used in greenhouses is also much lighter than glass and is far easier to cut to the size and shape that you want. So if you already have a greenhouse and wish to replace the glass panels with polycarbonate ones this is a very simple job that you could do.

4. Each sheet of polycarbonate that one uses in a greenhouse has ribbed channels on them. These help to diffuse light as it tries to enter into the greenhouse and so you do not need to use as much shading inside in order to protect the plants, which you are growing, no matter how hot the sun gets.

5. Along with the ribbed effect on each sheet they also have U-Channels and these will protect the sheets from insects and dirt also. Also these channels are essential as they help to remove the build up of condensation within side the greenhouse quickly and make sure that it drains away properly.

6. As we have previously mentioned greenhouses, which use polycarbonate rather than glass, are very well insulated and this will further extend the time that you are able to grow plants for. Plus if you choose to heat your greenhouse during the winter months in order to provide further protection them the loss of heat from this is greatly reduced as well.

As you can see from above there are many reasons why polycarbonate greenhouses are becoming increasingly popular over those that are made using glass. Certainly if you live in a place where the climate is cool then having a well-insulated greenhouse is important if you want to grow the best plants possible.
