for optimal plant growth.

Solexx greenhouse panels keep plants happy!
greenhouse panels let in intense direct light that creates hot
spots and will burn
your plants. Polycarbonate greenhouse covering is an improvement but
still only partially diffuses the light leaving your plants vulnerable
to sunscold. With the diffused light of Solexx greenhouse panels, your
plants will not suffer sunburn and as a result they will be healthier
and grow more vigorously.

Solexx Greenhouse Details:
Strong and shatter-proof, double-walled Solexx panels
will protect your seedlings and plants from strong winds,
hail, driving rain, snow, and other harsh weather conditions.
With our insulated Solexx panels, you will keep
heating costs low while extending your growing season from
early spring to late fall. Unlike other greenhouse coverings,
our double UV inhibitor is added as the plastic is processed,
and is not just a coating. Solexx panels create
an evenly diffused light so no matter where your plant
is in the greenhouse, it will benefit from optimal growing
conditions. The Garden Oasis comes standard with 3.5mm
Solexx panels or upgrade to 5mm Solexx Pro
in high altitude, heavy snow areas.

Frequently asked questions about Solexx greenhouses and greenhouse covering
- What makes Solexx Greenhouses different
Insulated Solexx paneling is available only on Solexx Greenhouses. The
covering is insulated to cut down heating and cooling costs, but most importantly,
you get more light diffusion than is available with other types of covering.
University tests have shown that plants grow better under diffused light.
Another feature that makes us different is our built-in bench frames. With
almost all other greenhouse kits, benches are a large additional expense.
Also we include full-length hanging rods to overwinter hanging baskets.
- Are Solexx greenhouses able to withstand high winds?
Solexx greenhouses perform excellent in wind. Our composite frame (the
same material used to make bridges) is extremely strong and durable. As
long as the greenhouse is firmly anchored (which we can help you with),
you should not have problems. The combination of a strong frame and flexible
paneling works very well in adverse conditions. Many of our customers live
on the coast and frequently experience winds of 70 mph. One customer in
New Jersey has a greenhouse that survived Hurricane "Bob" with
no damage from the impacting tree branches.
- Are the greenhouses easy to heat?
Solexx greenhouses are easy to heat. The 3.5mm and 5mm twin-walled glazing
material provides more insulation than most other hobby greenhouse materials.
We offer several different heaters to meet your specific heating needs.
The cost of heating your greenhouse will depend on your area and what you
plan to grow. Many plants require only a 45-degree nighttime temperature.
Many people are able to heat their greenhouse all winter for under $20.00
a month in the coldest months. Heating costs can be reduced by using buckets
or plastic jugs of water or by lining the greenhouse with a layer of Visquine
or bubble wrap in the cold months. In mild conditions, 5 gallon covered
black buckets filled with water will trap the solar energy during the day
and release heat for most of the night. Another option is adding rabbits
to your greenhouse. Rabbits put out 8 BTU’s per hour, which amounts
to roughly 2.5 gal of fuel in 6 months. Rabbit manure also adds heat and
makes a great non-burning fertilizer.
- How do I prepare the site for my greenhouse?
Very little site preparation is required for your Solexx Greenhouse. You
can place your greenhouse on any leveled area such as your lawn, over bare
ground, on a gravel base, over a wood deck, on a concrete slab, or a brick
patio. We recommend a gravel base for the best drainage.
- What tools will I need to assemble the greenhouse?
Assembling a Solexx Greenhouse is takes just a few readily available tools.
You will need a screwdriver, variable speed drill, sharp knife or utility
knife, tape measure, step ladder, GE Silicon-2 caulk, caulking gun, clear
PVC glue and a level.
Solexx Greenhouse Covering
- I am interested in your Solexx polycarbonate covering. How do you install
Our specially formulated Solexx greenhouse panels are actually a polyethylene
blend. They are much more flexible than twin-wall polycarbonate greenhouses
panels and can easily be screwed onto an existing greenhouse frame. This
covering is available in 4’ x 8’ or 4’ x 12’ sheets
in 3.5 or 5mm thicknesses. Solexx greenhouse covering can also be ordered
in continuous rolls up to 1000 feet so you can conveniently cover just about
- Isn’t the paneling too dark to transmit light?
The unique Solexx greenhouse covering transmits 70-75 percent of the available
light. Most plants only need 40 percent light to grow, but 70-80 percent
available light is the optimal growing range. Even on cloudy days, your
greenhouse has a pleasant, soft glow inside. The panels diffuse the light
evenly throughout the greenhouse eliminating "hot spots" and shadows.
Also, a bit less light transmission will help to keep your greenhouse from
getting too hot during warm weather.
- Does the covering break down in the sun?
Solexx panels are treated with a double UV inhibitor during the extrusion
process. The covering has an eight-year limited warranty against ultraviolet
breakdown and is tested and certified by an independent lab. Solexx greenhouses
have been in the field for well over fifteen years and there has been minimal
UV degradation. All plastics do eventually break down when exposed to direct
sunlight for extended periods of time; however, these panels are easy and
inexpensive to replace.
- How do you clean the paneling?
Solexx greenhouse paneling can be rinsed or wiped clean without worry of scratching.
The panels are impervious to chemicals so you can wash them with a mild
soap. It’s a good idea to do this a couple times a year to keep your
greenhouse clean and to maximize light transmission.
- How does the paneling hold up in cold or snowy weather?
Solexx greenhouse panels are very durable. Solexx greenhouses have been undamaged
after being covered in several feet of snow and exposed to subzero temperatures
for most of the winter. Snow tends to slide right off of the slick paneling
material. Unlike many greenhouse materials, our panels will not yellow from
the sun or cold.
- What is the difference between polycarbonate and Solexx panels?
Solexx greenhouses are made with polyethylene. Polyethylene is much more
flexible and is easy to cut to any size. Polycarbonate panels tend to be
thicker, but have about the same insulation factor as polyethylene. Both
materials diffuse light, but polycarbonate diffuses less (because it is
more transparent), making the greenhouses much hotter in the summer. Polyethylene
is very easy to clean and will not scratch like polycarbonate.
- How do you cut the panels? Is it easy to do?
Solexx greenhouse panels can be cut with a simple utility knife. Because the material
is so flexible, it’s also possible to bend it around many curves and
corners on a structure.
- Should I use 3.5 or 5mm paneling?
Solexx greenhouse panels are available in 3.5mm or 5mm thickness. The 3.5mm panels
are recommended in most areas because they provide more light transmission.
The 5mm panels are used in very cold climates (for added insulation) and
for areas in high altitudes. It is also recommended on many custom structures
for added support. Both varieties are available in 4'1" x 8'1" sheets
and 4'1 " x 12' 3" sheets or continuous rolls.
