Insulated Solexx 42 x 146 Greenhouse Panels reduce your heating costs while providing 70-77 percent soft, diffused light – best light for plants.
Insulated Solexx 42 x 146 Greenhouse Panels reduce your heating costs while providing 70-77 percent soft, diffused light – which is the best light for plants. The Solexx Greenhouse Panels are 42 in. x 146 in. and have strong, shatter-proof greenhouse glazing protects your plants from strong winds, snow, and other harsh weather conditions and unlike other twin-wall greenhouse coverings, the flexible paneling can be bent around corners and easily cut with a utility knife. The Solexx 42 x 146 Greenhouse Panels are now available in panels up to 12 ft. long and rolls up to 1000 ft. long, making it easy to re-cover just about any structure.
Light is important for your plants, but glass greenhouse panels let in intense direct light which create hot spots and will burn your plants. Polycarbonate greenhouse coverings are an improvement but still only partially diffuse the light, leaving your plants vulnerable to sunburn. But with the diffused-light of the polyethylene panels, your plants will not suffer sunburn and as a result they will be healthier and grow more vigorously. In addition, the twin-wall structure provides insulating value from both heat and cold. Many hobbyist greenhouses are classified as season extenders and are not designed for year-round growing. For cold conditions select a greenhouse with the thickest panels and also use a gas or electric heating system.

R-Value – the measurement of ‘insulating ability’ of the material. The higher the R-Value number the greater the insulation value.
U-Value – the measurement of ‘heat loss’ through the material. The lower the U-Value the less heat is escaping.
