DynaGlas® was the first corrugated polycarbonate ever introduced to the commercial greenhouse market nearly three decades ago. Since then, DynaGlas has become an industry standard against which all other corrugated polycarbonate products for the horticulture market are compared.  DynaGlas includes several products with a variety of features engineered specifically for commercial greenhouse use. 

 

With more than 200 million sq. ft. installed worldwide, DynaGlas Plus® is the leading corrugated polycarbonate product for the commercial greenhouse industry. DynaGlas Plus features built-in condensate control that is so effective, it's guaranteed for 10 years.

In general, polycarbonate is inherently susceptible to condensate formation, especially when used to cover totally enclosed environments like greenhouses. DynaGlas Plus is made with an exclusive manufacturing process that results in the industry's first and most extensive 10-year condensate control warranty. Because effective condensate control is such a critical need for greenhouse growers, the "Plus" condensate control feature is now built-in to every DynaGlas product. 

 

DynaGlasAll DynaGlas products feature built-in condensation control that is second to none. In fact, the performance is so good it's backed by a 10-year limited warranty.

    Light Transmission Characteristics

    DynaGlas offers the same sparkling clarity as glass. But because DynaGlas requires no shade casting glazing system, DynaGlas transmits as much as 7% more light than glass. DynaGlas Plus SolarSoft 85™ offers high light transmission (85%), but also offers 100% light diffusion, helping to spread light throughout the greenhouse and reduce shadows.

    Visual Defects (inclusions, bubbles, black specks, gel, etc.) If defect is not visible by inspection from a distance of 1 meter, it is not considered to be a defect. Surface abrasion may occur in transit. This is not
    considered a defect as DynaGlas is not intended for “architectural optical
    clarity” applications. This type of abrasion will not affect durability.
