What is Solexx twin-wall panels? The perfect greenhouse covering: diffused light, insulated, easy to install, strong and affordable.
Insulated twin-wall Solexx™ greenhouse panels reduce your heating costs while providing 70-77% soft, diffused light - the best light for plants! The strong, shatter-proof greenhouse glazing protects your plants from strong winds, snow and other harsh weather conditions. Unlike other twin-wall greenhouse coverings, the flexible paneling can be bent around corners and easily cut with a utility knife.
Why is diffused light best? You have probably noticed that Solexx™ paneling does not look like other greenhouse coverings.
That’s because Solexx’s translucent design creates highly diffused light in your greenhouse--the best possible light for your plants.
Diffused light and direct light are very different. Diffused light scatters in many different angles so the light energy reaches all areas of the greenhouse. With Solexx covering, even the bottom bench shelves are bathed in warm diffused light. Direct light is intense light concentrated in a small area. High light intensity creates excessive heat, hot spots and many shadows.
How does light diffusion affect plant growth? Plants create food from light so the type of light they receive is important. Plants exposed to direct light (no diffusion) produce a majority of their food from the top leaves facing the sun. The select leaves absorbing the sun energy do most of the work while the shaded leaves do very little. Direct light also creates excessive heat which causes plant stress. When a plant is immersed in diffused light, all the leaves can photosynthesize resulting in more food production and healthier, fuller plant development. In addition, the upper leaves of the plant receive less intense light which means they will not suffer from plant stress caused by sun burn and excessive transpiration.
