Our 8 mil. woven poly plastic is long lasting, puncture and tear resistant, and can be used as a single layer or as the first layer in a double layer application. (11 mil. recommended for second layer)  Woven plastic is ideal for those looking for added light diffusion and those in harsher climates looking for a strong, hail resistant covering that still maintains the flexible advantages of poly coverings.
The 11 mil. woven poly plastic, Solarig 182, boasts superior tear and puncture resistance and has a specialized IF coating that helps to retain inside heat. This sheeting provides added light diffusion. Plants are able to absorb everything while filtering out the excess UV that could cause damage and increase pest problems. 15x stronger than the typical greenhouse plastic, warrantied for 6 years!

Measuring for Greenhouse Plastic

Width

To estimate your plastic width before your greenhouse is built, you can do the following:

  • Count the number of poles you will be using to build each arch.
  • Measure the length of each pole and multiple by the number of poles
  • Determine the height of your finished ground posts
  • Add 2 times the height of your ground posts
Example: If you are building a 20-foot wide greenhouse, you will be using 3 - 10-foot poles for each arch. If your ground posts are 4 feet high, you will need 8 additional feet (4 feet x 2). Therefore you will need [3 x 10 feet (hoops)] + [4 x 2 feet (ground posts)] + 4 feet (extra for any variation or for roll-up sides) = 42 Feet wide.


Length

To estimate the length of your greenhouse plastic, follow the steps below

  • Measure the length of your greenhouse
  • Estimate the height of the top of your hoops
  • Add the length of your greenhouse + 2 times the height of your greenhouse

Example: The length of the greenhouse is 100 feet. The total height of the greenhouse will be 13 feet. You will need 100 Feet (length of greenhouse) + 2 x 13 feet (height of greenhouse) + 4 Feet (extra for any variations) = 130 feet long.

Plastic Care and Storage

Store your plastic folded in a cool dry place when not in use. Avoid using chemical sprays too closely to the film as they can damage the plastic. Repair any rips or tears using the appropriate repair tape. Re-stretch and tighten as needed to avoid loose areas that create weak spots.
