Why Solexx

Solexx greenhouse covering surpasses other covering choices in insulation, light quality and longevity. Save money year after year with healthier plants, lower energy bills and a greenhouse that lasts and lasts.

Solexx diffuses the light creating a soft even light throughout the greenhouse for better plant growth. Eliminates plant burning.Superior Light Diffusion
Solexx is White For A Reason — it produces an even diffuse light proven to accelerate plant growth by 25%. The light glows evenly reaching into every corner of the greenhouse. More light for photosynthesis means more robust growth.

Undeniable Durability
Solexx offers a 10 year warranty with an even longer life expectancy. It withstands snow, wind, and hail and won't fade or yellow over time. Best of all it requires very little maintenance. Should you need to replace the Solexx paneling at some time, the panels are readily available and easy to replace.

Most Economical to Heat
Solexx provides superior insulation to hold in the warmth and keep your heating costs low. Plants thrive while customers save on energy costs. The chart below outlines the heating costs using different types of greenhouse coverings. Solexx has one of the highest R factors of 2.1R on the market, so it holds in the heat better than the competition saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars over other greenhouse coverings.

Chart comparing the heating cost of various greenhouse coverings compared to Solexx

Comparison of annual heating costs with various Greenhouse Coverings using Denver, Colorado as the greenhouse location. The 8' x 12' greenhouse is kept at a minimum temperature of 45 degrees all year using natural gas at $2 per therm as the heat source. Data was compiled from the USDA Virtual Grower software.

As you can see from the chart, Solexx pays for itself in a few short years over the other greenhouse coverings. Keep in mind that these heating costs are for year round heating. A majority of the heating costs occur during December and January (the coldest months). So, to save money, you can start seeds indoors to delay heating the greenhouse during the coldest month.
