Practical alternative to greenhouse glass in high demand at Nick Gray Building Plastics

Share Article

Lichfield-based supplier of polycarbonate sheeting, building plastics and accessories, Nick Gray Building Plastics, has encountered an incredible surge in demand for a practical alternative to traditional greenhouse glass.

The 4mm polycarbonate sheet offered by Nick Gray Building Plastics as a replacement for greenhouse glass has been in high demand following the torrential wind and rain the UK encountered at the beginning of the year.

Built with a twinwall structure, the polycarbonate sheet offers exceptional strength and durability compared to glass or other materials. Supplied with premium UV protection, polycarbonate sheeting has quickly become a popular choice for customers at Nick Gray Building Plastics.

Lending themselves to many applications including greenhouses, cold frames and shed windows, the twinwall structure of polycarbonate sheets means they are significantly stronger and more durable than other, more traditional alternatives.

Further, the sheets offer far greater safety benefits than glass, being virtually impossible to break or shatter. The peace of mind that comes with installing polycarbonate sheeting is particularly important for any application where children, the elderly or even pets are involved.

With a protective UV film to prevent from any unsightly discolouration to the panels, the polycarbonate sheet aids with light diffusion in greenhouses and is a far superior thermal insulator to traditional glass, allowing for a significant reduction in heating costs for plant growers during colder periods.

Nick Gray Building Plastics supply polycarbonate sheets in a variety of sizes to fit every purpose and offer a free ‘cut to size’ service for their customers.

Nick Gray, Managing Director adds, “We have been shipping a much higher volume of 4mm polycarbonate sheet per day compared with the average for this time of year. The storms we had during the first part of the year means that just about everyone with a traditionally glazed greenhouse encountered some damage. Glass is far too delicate for a greenhouse, where even careless opening and shutting can shatter the panes. Polycarbonate is a great alternative to glass that will last longer and is far more affordable.”
