Commercial Greenhouse Coverings

Polycarbonate coverings and panels for commercial greenhouses

Polycarbonate greenhouse coverings or panels meet the performance of glass in terms of light transmission and thermal insulation; and they also offer much more in terms of material properties. As polycarbonate weighs less than half the weight of glass, both the structural requirements and maintenance costs of Palram’s polycarbonate greenhouse panels are significantly lower. Palram’s polycarbonate greenhouse panels also feature integrated drip and condensation controls that reduce dripping, resulting in a reduced chance of fungal infections, viruses and bacteria. Controlling condensation also reduces reflectivity, which improves light transmittance. Superior thermal insulation can be achieved with multiwall polycarbonate covering sheets. These are built with an insulated honeycomb structure that preserves internal heat and saves on heating costs.

Features growers care about

In general, polycarbonate is inherently susceptible to condensate formation, especially when used to cover enclosed environments such as greenhouses.

SUNTUF Plus and SUNLITE Plus 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 “Plus” condensate control feature is now built into every SUNTUF Plus and SUNLITE Plus product.

Why compromise? Balance your thermal insulation & light transmission requirements.

Control light transmission with SolarSmart technology

Cannabis greenhouses

With recent developments in legalization and medicalization, growers are faced with new opportunities and challenges. During daylight cycles, growers in the commercial market strive for maximum 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 suited for greenhouse walls and gables.
