COMMERCIAL GREENHOUSE COVERINGS
Polycarbonate greenhouse coverings and roof panels
Solid corrugated polycarbonate greenhouse coverings are equivalent to the performance of glass in terms of light transmission; provide improved thermal insulation, while offering unique advantages in terms of physical properties.
Weighing just half as much as glass, Palram polycarbonate panels reduce the amount of required structural members, while also reducing overall maintenance costs.
Palram’s commercial greenhouse solutions also include panels with integrated drip and condensation controls that reduce condensation buildup and dripping, resulting in increased protection against common fungal infections, viruses, and bacteria.
Controlling condensation also reduces reflectivity, which improves light transmittance. For superior thermal insulation, Palram's polycarbonate multiwall panels are manufactured with a cellular structure that creates insulating air spaces that retain internal heat, thereby reducing overall heating costs.
FEATURES GROWERS CARE ABOUT
Polycarbonate is inherently susceptible to condensate formation, especially when used to cover enclosed environments. Palram’s solutions for commercial greenhouse coverings are manufactured using a unique process that results in the industry’s first and most extensive 10-year condensate control warranty.
As effective condensate control is such a critical need for greenhouse growers, the feature is now built into every SUNTUF Plus and SUNLITE Plus product.
Palram's full range of solutions enables you to better control thermal insulation, light diffusion and light transmission.
|Product||U Value||K Value||LT%||Comment|
|SUNTUF® Plus||5.69-5.80||0.172-0.175||20-90||Higher light transmission|
|SUNLITE® Plus||1.45-3.50||0.286-0.69||20-80||Better thermal insulation|

Retail Garden Centers
Retail Garden Centers
As retail garden centers accommodate both plants and customers, they need to be comfortable for both. Palram greenhouse sheets and systems cater to these requirements with SolarSmart™ technology, which blocks infrared radiation (heat) while allowing visible light into the greenhouse. The result is a pleasant shopping experience for the customer, while providing the light and conditions required for plants to grow and flourish.
- SolarSmart™ technology provides selective solar transmission options
- Performs year round in harsh climates
- Lasts for years due to superior durability
- Leverages the benefits of natural light while reducing heat buildup
- Creates an enjoyable shopping experience
In urban areas, rooftop greenhouses are a great way to maximize land use. Rooftop growers need lightweight panels that don’t add weight to the roof on which they are located. Unlike greenhouse films, a long-life structure does not need to be replaced annually, and this saves a great deal of time and inconvenience. Palram greenhouse panels are easy to install onsite and are durable enough to protect plants while requiring minimal maintenance.
- Minimal burden to rooftops
- Easy to install onsite
- Require minimal maintenance and replacement
- Provide thermal insulation for low ambient temperatures common to high altitudes
- High-light transmission panels for optimal crop yields in small volume sites
Due to the recent developments in the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis, growers are faced with several growing challenges. Commercial cultivation of cannabis requires full control over the day and night cycles. During daylight cycles, growers in the commercial market strive for maximal light transmittance and high light diffusion factors. Opaque walls are desirable for security and discretion, as well as for light deprivation control.
Palram provides a suite of solutions for cannabis growers with specific high-light transmission and diffusion panels for the roof; and opaque, reflective multiwall or corrugated sheets for greenhouse walls and gables.
- Polycarbonate roof panels provide high level of light transmission
- Light blocking, UV resistant, and reflective sheets enable full light deprivation control
What do growers want?
During daylight cycles, Cannabis greenhouse growers strive for the optimized light transmission and light diffusion.
Opaque walls are desirable for light deprivation cycles and are commonly used for greenhouse sides and end walls.
Collaborating with the world's largest growers and greenhouse builders, Palram has developed and now provide a package of solutions that wraps the entire growing facility and provides a safe, protected and controlled growing environment.
