Whether you're replacing existing greenhouse coverings or building a greenhouse you're sure to find the best greenhouse covering at FarmTek. Greenhouse glazing is the material that covers the greenhouse frame and the most widely used materials are polycarbonate and poly film. We also carry greenhouse film repair tape, batten strip, poly patching tape, polypropylene strapping, greenhouse silicon sealants, as well as polycarbonate latches and channels.
Polyethylene film is a thick, flexible material that comes in sheets of various thickness (measured in mil) that can be used in single or double layers (for better insulation). A quick and inexpensive option for growers, FarmTek's high quality greenhouse film has ultraviolet (UV) protection and offers excellent tensile strength durability. Polyethylene plastic greenhouse film translucency diffuses light well, bouncing the available sunlight and reducing shadows, both of which aid plant growth. Poly film is also easy to install with homeowner tools and modest building skills.
One of the strongest greenhouse coverings, polycarbonate is a translucent rigid plastic that is almost as transparent as glass. It is available in corrugated single layer or flat twin wall thickness — the air pockets between the two walls acts as an insulator. Light transmission through polycarbonate is very good and the lightweight material can be easily cut and installed.
