Glass vs. Polycarbonate for your Janssens Greenhouse?

Your Janssens Victorian Greenhouse awaits, and with it comes a crucial decision: glass or polycarbonate for the walls? Both materials offer distinct advantages, catering to different priorities. Let's delve into the pros and cons of each to help you make an informed choice.

The Timeless Elegance of Glass

  • Unmatched Clarity: Glass boasts superior transparency, ideal for showcasing your prized plants or creating a light-filled haven for relaxation.
  • Unfiltered Sunlight: For plant enthusiasts, glass transmits the maximum amount of natural light, crucial for photosynthesis and healthy growth.
  • Durability and Safety: Tempered glass, the recommended choice for greenhouses, is significantly stronger than regular glass and shatters into blunt fragments, minimizing safety concerns.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Glass is a sustainable and inert material, making it a responsible choice for the eco-conscious gardener.
  • Royal and Retro greenhouse can select glass wall + Poly roof.

The Practicality of Polycarbonate

  • Unmatched Strength: Polycarbonate's near-unbreakable nature makes it ideal for withstanding heavy winds, snow loads, and even accidental impacts.
  • Diffused Light Protection: Polycarbonate panels filter harmful UV rays, creating a gentler, more diffused light environment that benefits certain plant varieties.
  • Superior Insulation: Compared to glass, polycarbonate boasts better thermal insulation, helping retain heat and potentially reducing heating costs in colder climates.
