Make your greenhouse virtually indestructible by using our Superstrong Polycarbonate Glazing Panels instead of glass. We recommend a minimum gauge of 3mm for adequate rigidity. Our customers have told us 2mm thick polycarbonate is 'too bendy' particularly on larger panels to be fit for purpose.
Our polycarbonate is 200x stronger than glass and half its weight making it a superb, easy to use choice to replace broken or existing glass panels. Polycarbonate is also much stronger than acrylic alternatives. Because polycarbonate is so strong you can be confident you'll not need to replace your polycarbonate panels anytime soon. Polycarbonate is also ideal for making cold frames & cloches and replacing glass to make vulnerable doors & windows more secure.
How To Order:
- Simply enter the measurements of your panels into our Cut To Size box above and we'll deliver the panels you need safely, ready to go in your greenhouse.
- If you would like a socket hole, area or shape cut out in your plastic or an angle you can order it above in our Optional Extras area.
- We call them Cut Outs; simply select from our Cut Outs menu the number of cut outs you need. For example, if you need a diagonal edge, a large hole and a corner cut off your plastic that would equal 3 cut outs; please choose ‘3’ from our Cut Outs menu.
- Then, click the upload sketch button to send a drawing of your requirements from your computer files. Your drawing will come to us along with your order.
That's it. If we have any questions, we'll be in touch.
How do I fit replacement greenhouse panels?
If your replacement panels are the same size as your original panels you can fit them in excatly the same way as your original panels. You can use the same clips. On wooden frames you can even drill polycarbonate on (it will not break) or use putty. If you like, we can drill any holes in ready for you. Just let us know as you order above.
