Ten years ago it would be practically impossible to imagine a greenhouse without glass or film.
Today these materials are replaced in manufacturing of the greenhouses by cellular polycarbonate, which has much better characteristics than glass and film. However, this is worth telling more.
Benefits of cellular polycarbonate greenhouses are as follows:
Polycarbonate has great light transmission and dispersal qualities, while at the same time protecting plants from harmful UV rays.
By the way, on “Averto” website www.averto.lv/en you can order cellular polycarbonate greenhouses in any shape and size at a very good price.
Polycarbonate is an extremely light material, which weights approximately 12 times less than the glass used in traditional greenhouses.
Despite the smaller weight polycarbonate is 50 times more durable than the glass. The durability is an essential benefit, since it ensures the resistance to even strong mechanical effects.
High grade flexibility of the cellular polycarbonate will keep the greenhouse rigid and standing even in strong winds.
Comparatively low price (polycarbonate greenhouses cost less than glass greenhouses).
