Commercial Greenhouse Coverings
Polycarbonate coverings and panels for commercial greenhouses
Polycarbonate greenhouse panels are equivalent to the performance of glass for light transmission while offering unique advantages in terms of material properties. Weighing just half as much as glass, Palram polycarbonate sheets reduce the amount of required structural members, while also reducing overall maintenance costs.
Palram’s greenhouse solutions also include panels with integrated drip and condensation controls that reduce 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 which retain internal heat, thereby reducing overall heating costs.
Control light transmission with SolarSmart technology
SolarSmart technology defies the standard transmission of solar energy. Unlike regular tints, SolarSmart panels admit more natural daylight while reflecting outwards infrared radiation that creates heat.
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.
In addition to condensation control, Palram's full range of solutions enable you to better control thermal insulation, light diffusion and light transmission.

Fits All Structures
Palram offers commercial growers a wide selection of greenhouse coverings with different light transmission, thermal insulation, and diffusion properties. These greenhouse coverings are lightweight and durable to reduce maintenance and material costs. The coverings create a tailor-made environment to match the grower’s crops and facilitate high crop yields. Moreover, Palram products are suited to specific structure types, including retrofitting film or glass greenhouses.
- UV protection
- High level of light transmission and diffusion
- Performs year round, even in areas with harsh climates and temperature extremes
- Suits every type of structure while requiring minimal supports
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—and better light conditions for plants to grow and flourish.
- SolarSmart™ technology provides selective solar transmission options
- Lasts for years due to superior durability
- Leverages the benefits of natural light while reducing heat buildup
- Creates an enjoyable shopping experience
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
- Superb thermal insulation—saves energy
- Impact resistance—virtually unbreakable
