Which Glazing System is Right for you?
Single glass is one of the most economical glazing systems and makes for a nice show piece in your yard. Our single glass is tempered safety glass to minimize any possibility of breakage or injury. Glass appeals to gardeners who want full light transmission to control the amount of sun in the greenhouse.
Single Glass 3MM, Relative (R Value) Heat Gain .90 Approximately 95% light transmission.
Insulated double glass offers the gardener a spectacular view of plants and flowers while maintaining superb heat insulation for all types of growing for your specialty plants. Our double glass is tempered safety glass to minimize any possibility of breakage or injury.
Double Glass 16MM, Relative (R Value) Heat Gain 2.04 Approximately 90% light transmission
Optional high performance Low E glass (R Value) Heat Gain = 3.3. Approximately 70% light transmission
Our 6mm twinwall polycarbonate is the most economical. It is a practical choice for a working greenhouse as it offers 50% more insulation than single pane glass and diffuses harmful sunlight in the summer. It is essentially unbreakable, making it very safe in a family environment. The insulation will prevent the temperature in the greenhouse from changing drastically and results in the best possible growing environment.
Twin Wall 6MM, Relative (R Value) Heat Gain 1.59. Approximately 82% light transmission.
Our 16mm fivewall polycarbonate is the most energy efficient glazing available on the market today. It offers 50% more insulation than double glass and 80% more insulation than twinwall polycarbonate. Fivewall is ideal for colder climates and gardeners who grow specialty plants, or for those who wish to reduce long term heating costs.
Fivewall 16MM, Relative (R Value) Heat Gain 3.03. Approximately 62% light transmission.
