Answer: 
No, our PVC panels should not be used on any enclosed applications, such as a greenhouse. The PVC should be used on open, well-ventilated applications such as a patio cover.
You would want to use the Suntuf polycarbonate panels for a greenhouse application. These are also available in 12' Clear and the model # is 101699

I also went thru the same ordeal, home depot does a poor job marketing this stuff. I ordered the head wall connector in the gray color and painted it to match my house trim and it worked good.

Answer: 
Good Morning,
Palruf PVC panels should not be used for a greenhouse or any enclosed structure. They are to be used on open and well ventilated applications, such as patio covers, car ports, etc.
You would want to use the Suntuf Polycarbonate panels for a greenhouse. These block the harmful UV rays that would cause a sun burn but allow the PAR light that plants need to pass through.

Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible and leaky Just spent almost $600 to replace a deck roof. Followed the instructions to a tee. First rain and the entire roof is leaking. Severely unimpressed. June 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Got the job done Got these to winterize a screened in porch. Hung them horizontally and they work like a charm! I know people have complained about them chipping when you try to cut them. That started to happen so I got out my hair dryer and heated them up before trying to cut them. It worked! November 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A product that should not be sold I have built a shed and a patio and was building another shed using the Paltuf PVC roof panels. The fasteners require predrilling for expansion purposes. 40% of the predrilled holes cracked or shattered so that many of the holes were much larger than the crews. I had to put silicone on each screw to seal. After the panels were installed a week we had a small hailstorm. The other two buildings with different translucent roof materials didn't have any problems. The Paltuf panels completely shattered into pieces. Contacting Palram they say there is no warranty for hail. The storm we had was a typical small hail storm. Nothing else was damaged by the hail, just their just roof panels. This lack of warranty should be on the panels when you buy them. There were no instruction manuals. June 11, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Brittle The price was much better than the competitor for 12ft piece. This material was so brittle. It cracked an split at the slightest bump on something. I cut two sheets it into 6 ft pieces. I used a new razor blade. It cracked and broke chunks out even though I was trying to be very careful. The second sheet I tried even harder to learn from the first sheet, but still not good. I went ahead and put them on my greenhouse roof. I am hoping the cracks don't continue up the panel. I drilled the wholes but any little slip turned into breaking or cracking. Bottom line is the product needs to be a bit more forgiving. I don't know how long it has been on the shelf. That could have been part of the reason. I went to one Home Depot and the piece on the shelf was already broken up and down the edges. March 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Use at your own peril! I tried to save money and used these. Was broken in under a year. I have no idea how one is supposed to cut these panels, whatever method I used ended up cracking. I am now in the process of replacing all 18 panels with 'Suntuf' polycarbonate which I should have used instead. They are more expensive, but I accidentally folded one of those in half with no break, just had a crease. Also, Suntuf can probably be cut with a carpenter saw, but I prefer using something with a finer pitch. This product is a waste of money. March 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Palfuf Panels Worked Great but get other Accessories Too! My Experience Was Great although I had to take up first installation to put the foam end caps and horizontal caps to complete a waterproof install. Learn from my problem and get these too! ALSO very important to use silicone caulk to seal the edges of the panels where they overlap one to the next. Also get the proper install screws recommended AND put silicone the tops to avoid leak. WARNING: Cutting the panels is more difficult than it'd seem because they're a bit brittle. Tape off a line to cut with painters tape and use a jig saw ON SLOW to avoid cracking and splitting. I bought the 12' length and cut to 10' long for my install. I learned the hard way! Ha! January 15, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very brittle Cracks very easily. Difficult to cut and then drill screws through without cracking. Can't think of anything this would be useful for to use April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job! I purchased this product to create a solid barrier between my neighbor's sprinklers and my car port. I overlapped the PVC panels so the water rolls down the back and my cars no longer get wet every other day! (Prior to this, I used tarps but they deteriorated over time and the ties were constantly breaking, so I wanted a more permanent solution.) These panels withstood the recent winds very well. I am very happy! Since the uprights they are attached to were not installed in a straight line, it helps that the product bend, too. March 14, 2014
