Why We Love ‘Em
(You Will Too…)
By now you are probably aware that we heartily recommend Solexx greenhouse coverings and kits.
We sincerely believe that Solexx manufactures the most durable, economical, simple yet highly productive greenhouse kit on the market today.
And we will explain why our “Bundled Deluxe Greenhouse Packages” are the best deal on the ‘net.
At the risk of repeating ourselves, we’ll quickly summarize our reasons for this recommendation.
Solexx™ is a unique double-walled plastic greenhouse covering
manufactured by Adaptive Plastics, Inc. Not only does it provide optimum
insulation, it’s unique formulation and structure takes direct sunlight
and diffuses it into a bright, soft, even glow inside the greenhouse.
This feature prevents shadows and hotspots and accelerates plant growth by up to 30%.
Solexx plastic panels:
- Are made in the USA.
- Are surprisingly strong and resistant to blows, hail, wind and heavy snow.
- Resist scratching, tearing, and breaking.
- Are UV treated for long life under the sun, without fading or yellowing.
- Are warranted for 10 years, but often last up to 20 years.
- Are lab-test proven superior insulation over double or triple wall polycarbonate, double or single pane glass, and poly film.
- Low maintenance-easy to keep clean.
- Replacement paneling is inexpensive, readily available and easy to install.
Since Solexx panels provide superior insulation, they hold in heat
better and minimize supplemental heating costs. You need to take this
into account when evaluating the pros and cons of different greenhouse
All of these reasons are why we believe Solexx panels are the best greenhouse covering buy for your buck!
But what about the structure… the framework?
Solexx greenhouse kits utilize special tubing for support framing members. They are made from a superstrong composite material reinforced with fiberglass. This makes them strong as steel yet flexible and rustproof.
Wood or metal frames cast shadows into the greenhouse; Solexx frames are white and reflect light just as the glazing panels do. They will never rust like metal frames; rot or absorb water or bacteria like wood frames.
The kits also come with built-in bench frames, which further reinforce the entire structure:
We offer wire bench shelves in our Deluxe Kits which custom-fit on these frames perfectly for your model; or you can build your own plant shelves to sit on the frames.
Cast metal connectors hold everything together and are easy to secure in place.
Just watch this video to see how simple it is to put one of these babies together.
