greenhouse covers

Many elements need to be considered when selecting a glazing material or greenhouse covering. The life of the material, its strength, weight, initial cost, light transmittance, thermal conductance and flammability are all very important. Cost mainly includes the initial cost of the material, structural support costs, life span of the glazing. A glazing material that has a high initial cost when compared to other glazing materials may be more economically attractive if it has a long lifespan or has a low thermal conductivity. As for the strength, the stronger the greenhouse glazing the more resistant it is to breakage from debris or weather events such as high winds and hail.
