Greenhouse Glazing

Rather than replace broken greenhouse panes with glass and have the same breakage problem again, we’d recommend using virtually unbreakable polycarbonate.

Because polycarbonate is over 200 times stronger than glass you can be confident it won’t break again easily. And because it is half the weight of glass, working with it is much easier as well as safer. 

It’s really easy to switch from glass to polycarbonate yourself – the polycarbonate can be ordered online and delivered cut ready to put in your existing greenhouse frame.

Here’s what you will need to do:

1.    measure your existing greenhouse glazing panes (including thickness) – use these measurements to order your polycarbonate panes. You’ll need the same size replacement panes

2.    remove your existing greenhouse panes – take care for any breaks in the glass

3.    insert your new polycarbonate panes – you’ll find this much easier than glass as the polycarbonate is considerably lighter and you won’t have to worry about breaks. 

You’ll find your new polycarbonate greenhouse glazing so strong it can withstand all sorts of high impact bumps and bashes. No need to be concerned about stray footballs anymore!
Take a look at some of our customer photographs to see how they got on replacing their greenhouse glazing with virtually unbreakable polycarbonate.

And thank you to a very creative student for a photograph of their fabulous little indoor greenhouse with its own drip watering system made for a university horticultural project.

If you’d like to try your own greenhouse glazing project and you need any help or advice, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly customer service team; they will be very happy to help.
