Greenhouse Glazing.

The glazing you choice for a greenhouse must be able to suit your needs there are three different types of greenhouse glazing, there is horticultural glass, toughened glass and polycarbonate glazing to choose from. The type of glazing you choose must be the right one for you as each type of glazing has different quality’s.

Horticultural glass is usually a thick overlapping glass sheet when used as greenhouse glazing but it is still very delicate glass that when broken will shatter into large sharp jagged pieces that can cause serious harm if you are not very careful when removing it is the cheapest of the three greenhouse glazings but it can be prone to algae and moss where the glass overlaps.

Toughened glass  has got the advantage of being a much stronger glass and is usually a full length sheet when used in greenhouse glazing providing a much neater finish. This safety glass is a much better option than horticultural glass because when it breaks it shatters into small glass granules removing the danger of serious injury, it is also an ideal glazing choice when it comes to a greenhouse that children or pets are going to be around.

Polycarbonate glazing is a UVI treated sheet this glazing also comes in full length sheet which will provide a neater finish when used for greenhouse glazing. Polycarbonate is a durable material that is very strong and has high impact-resistance making this a good option when you are buying a greenhouse that pets and children are going to be around. This type of glazing is the most expensive out of the three because of its strength and durability.
