Can Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheets Be Used for Greenhouses?
Multiwall polycarbonate sheets are a popular choice for greenhouses because they are easy to cut, shape, and install and can provide plants with the light and temperature they need to grow. Clear polycarbonate is known for its high light transmission and will evenly diffuse sunlight to create optimal growing conditions for greenhouse plants.
If you’re planning a greenhouse, you’re probably giving careful consideration to the materials you’ll use in its construction. Traditionally, greenhouses were built out of glass because glass is transparent and allows an optimal amount of light for plant growth. But with this obvious pro comes many cons, including the heavy weight of glass, its easy breakability, and its cost. To solve all of these problems, more and more greenhouse builders are turning to polycarbonate as their material of choice. Here’s a closer look at why polycarbonate is better than glass for greenhouses.
