Our crystal Clear Acrylic Greenhouse Panel 610mm x 457mm (24 x 18″) is the ideal replacement for glass greenhouse panels.
These sheets are as much as ten times more resistant to impact than glass and are less likely to be broken by footballs, golf balls or a variety other common household hazards. This strength does not come at the cost of clarity, with acrylic panels being no thicker than glass ones and are even more transparent.
Extruded Acrylic is also a great alternative to Polycarbonate panels which will slowly start to become yellow as a result of the sun’s UV rays, which will reduce its clarity and effectiveness. Acrylic on the other hand has excellent UV stability and is completely durable in all weather conditions, giving it a life of about 15-22 years when used outside. This is roughly 12 years longer than the expected outdoor life span of Polycarbonate, which is why we feel confidant enough to give our customers a 10-year outdoor guarantee on this product. Our Acrylic Greenhouse Panel 610mm x 457mm is available in 2, 3, and 4mm thick.
Another benefit is the huge decrease in weight compared to glass greenhouse panels.
