Make your greenhouse virtually indestructible by using polycarbonate instead of glass.
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. 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 below and we'll deliver the panels you need safely, ready to go in your greenhouse.
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. Justlet us know as you order below.

Delivery & Returns
Our business is about getting the right plastic to you in top condition, when you want it. Last month, we achieved that with 99.8% of our deliveries. The other 0.2% we re-issued, no quibbles.
That's because we invest in a careful packaging and delivery service:
- we carefully cover your plastic to safeguard it during transit
- we add extra protection around all corners, which are more vulnerable
- we finish our protective packaging with a sturdy outer
- we send your plastic to you using reputable tracked services
When you place an order with us we will:
- email you confirming your purchase
- email when your order despatches on your chosen service (next day or standard)
- email or text you details so you can track your delivery
- carefully pack your order to protect it during transit. Depending on your order, this may be bubble wrap, cardboard sheet or tube or a wooden pallet. Our plastic is also protected by film on both sides so when you receive it simply peel this off to reveal your plastic.
Trade callers are welcome to our trade counters in Leeds and Hull, Monday to Thursday 08:00 – 17:00 and Friday 08:00 - 16:00. Orders placed via this site or our phone helpline 0113 249 2222 can also be collected from our trade counters: of course, if you collect your order we will make no delivery or packing charge.
Receiving Your Delivery
Plastic leaves our warehouse in top condition and we will email or text you with details so that you can track your delivery. We package and protect your plastic to minimise chances of damage on its way to you. Someone needs to be in when your order is due to be delivered as we need a signature. Please check your goods before signing. If there is any damage please sign 'GOODS RECEIVED DAMAGED'. If you are unable to check please also write the same which will enable insurance cover in the event you later find goods are damaged. Don’t worry if you aren’t as our courier usually tries to deliver more than once. Alternatively a card will be left with details on how to pick up your order or rearrange delivery.
