Common Challenges with Other Plastic Sheeting Options
Greenhouse plastic sheeting must mitigate many common challenges, most of which occur due to the sun and weather conditions. When outdoors for a long period of time, plastic sheeting degrades quickly. Degraded plastic sheeting is prone to tearing, compromising the controlled environment inside your greenhouse and leaving your plants and equipment vulnerable to irreparable damage.
Another challenge growers must consider when choosing a plastic sheeting option is finding sheeting that is heavy-duty without being heavy. While greenhouse plastic sheeting is available in a wide range of thicknesses — greenhouse sheeting that is too thin can be too light and blow away or billow in windy regions. Non-reinforced sheeting is more prone to tearing. Alternatively, sheeting too thick for your application may be cumbersome and too heavy for the frame.
How SolaScrimTM Greenhouse Plastic Sheeting Beats Common Sheeting Challenges
SolaScrimTM mitigates many of the problems that can arise with greenhouse plastic sheeting due to its 10 mil thickness and string reinforcement. SolaScrimTM offers extreme durability in a lighter-weight material. “Choosing the right greenhouse cover the first time saves headaches down the road,” says Jason Treiger, Account Manager at Americover. “SolaScrimTM is designed for four seasons and a minimum of four years, making it perfect for greenhouse applications or situations where a building needs a temporary cover for longer than a year.”
Additionally, SolaScrimTM features UV inhibitors that prevent the plastic sheeting from breaking down for a set period of time. SolaScrimTM is engineered to last up to 4 years or more, depending on UV exposure and other environmental conditions. When you use a year-round cover like SolaScrimTM, you can avoid having to replace the cover as often, meaning you save money and reduce waste.
