Can Tuftex be used for a greenhouse or garden cover?
A: TUFTEX PolyCarb™ panels are the perfect choice for greenhouse and garden applications and are designed to withstand exposure to direct sunlight in outdoor applications.
TUFTEX PolyCarb Clear panels are well suited for greenhouse use because the panels transmit 89% of the PAR energy from daylight, which is very similar to clear glass.
The TUFTEX PolyCarb panels can withstand surface temperatures up to 270° F and down to -40° F.
Note: The support structure for the panels should be light colored and well ventilated to prevent damage to the panels from excess heat buildup between the support structures and the panels.
