Horticultural quality clear acrylic sheet works well as greenhouse glazing. Acrylic is not as rigid as glass and therefore will never look exactly the same.
It may tend to dip slightly when used in the roof unless fitted into a timber frame with beading.
Aluminium framed greenhouses utilising the “W” shaped wire clips work better with a little silicone applied to prevent the clips from springing out which can happen in very high winds as the plastic flexes.
Most greenhouses accept 3mm thickness which is the same as the old horticultural glass. Some timber framed houses take 4mm.
On timber structures with no rebate or slot the glazing is best secured with timber battens to spread the load on the fixings.
All panels including triangles and odd shapes can be supplied cut to size.
I no longer stock 4mm twinwall sheeting as most of the material at present has been reduced in quality to be price competitive.
In my opinion it is not strong enough for greenhouse use.
I am pleased to be able to offer 1mm thick semi-rigid pvc sheet for winter aviary protection. It is UV treated to extend the life of the sheet outdoors.
Cutting should be made with a very sharp Stanley knife and the sheet ideally secured with timber battens to spread the load on the fixings.
Sheet size: 1000 x 2000mm ( 39 3/8″ x 78 3/4″ approx )
This material is difficult to obtain these days but has been used for over 30 years on light duty outdoor structures.
Sheets can be rolled for easy transportation
