Glass vs Polycarbonate, which one to choose?

Glass Vs Polycarbonate, which one to choose?

The Victorian Greenhouse line, the RIGA, the Riverstone Monticello greenhouses is available with either 4mm Tempered Glass or 10mm Triple Layer "X-Strong" Polycarbonate walls. Each choice has a unique set of advantages allowing you to pick the option which will work best for your needs.

Advantages of Tempered Glass

  • 🌳 Full transparency is a better "look" for some applications, especially if using the structure for non plant-growing purposes
  • 🌳 Maximum amount of natural light when using structure for growing plants
  • 🌳 No fading or discoloration over lifespan
  • 🌳 Flame resistant
  • 🌳 Glass is a chemical free, environmentally friendly material

Advantages of Polycarbonate

  • 🌳 Almost impossible to break, polycarbonate will flex and resist against things like objects hitting the panels or heavy wind and snow loads
  • 🌳 Blocks harmful UV rays and creates a diffused light environment that promotes consistent light conditions throughout the interior of the structure
  • 🌳 Has been shown to retain heat more efficiently than glass, an advantage in cold weather growing environments
  • 🌳 Low maintenance, will demand less cleaning than glass while still looking great.
