Answer: 
DO NOT use this for a greenhouse or any enclosed application eg a shed. It will fail within a few years due to the plastic becoming soft in the heat brittle in the cold and then cracking, discoloring and leaking.

Good Afternoon,
We do not recommend using our PVC panels for any enclosed application, especially a greenhouse. These panels are designed for open, well ventilated applications, such as patio covers or carports.
You would want to use our Suntuf Polycarbonate or Sunlite Multiwall Polycarbonate panels for a greenhouse application. These panels can be used for both open and enclosed applications and will work perfectly for a greenhouse. Both are sold through Home Depot, however, the Sunlite may need to be ordered as a special order if the store does not stock. Both products can be viewed on our website - www.palramamericas.com/suntuf or palramamericas.com/sunlite
These will allow the helpful UV rays pass that promote plant growth, while blocking the harmful UV rays that would cause a sun burn. Read Less

Use as a Cover/Roof

Would these be good and cost effective to use as a cover/roof over outdoor dog runs at a shelter (PSPCA, Phila). We nixed metal corrugated roof due to appearance, but more importantly, when it rains the sound drives the dog/people nuts. Would this material be the same under the same conditions?

I would not use this product as a roof. It is brittle and hard to cut when new. It becomes even more brittle after exposure to the sun for a year or two or at cold temperatures.

Answer: 
Good Morning,
As long as these are open, well ventilated structures, the PVC would work for this application. If there are walls on the structure, you would want to upgrade to the Suntuf Polycarbonate sheets. The rain will make some noise on the panels but would not be as loud as what was experienced with metal roofing.

Answer: 
Hi, thanks for your question. I'm assuming you want to compare it to a readily available fiberglass panel say 4 or 6 oz. Palruf panels are 5 x stronger than a 6 ox fiberglass panel. They resist breakage better during storage and handling. The Palruf panel is more temperature sensitive than fiberglass - it should only be used on structures like patio and deck covers where they are open and ventilated Read More
Hi, thanks for your question. I'm assuming you want to compare it to a readily available fiberglass panel say 4 or 6 oz. Palruf panels are 5 x stronger than a 6 ox fiberglass panel. They resist breakage better during storage and handling. The Palruf panel is more temperature sensitive than fiberglass - it should only be used on structures like patio and deck covers where they are open and ventilated on 3 sides to allow for heat dissipation and similarly to fiberglass it can be subject to hail damage particularly if temperatures are below freezing. The clear panel is much more clear than anything you can get in fiberglass - by its nature embedding a fiberglass mat in resin decreases clarity - and the panels are UV inhibited to help maintain that clarity. This is an excellent entry level panel. If you believe want to enclose your project, like a greenhouse for example, or have concerns about hail or other impacts to the product then I would suggest you look at our Suntuf polycarbonate panel - also available in clear. Suntuf is 20 times stronger than 6 oz fiberglass, can be used on open and enclosed products, has a lifetime warranty for clarity and a 10 year warranty for impact/hail. I hope this answer is helpful. We will be happy to answer any other questions you may have as well. Read Less

Answer: 
At the core Polycarbonate and PVC are two different types of plastic and each has its own characteristics. Suntuf (Polycarbonate) is very impact resistant and carries a hail warranty. It is temperature tolerant which means it can be used on enclosed structures like sheds and greenhouses where heat can build up and it stays flexible in cold temperatures as well. Polycarbonate also inherently blocks 99.9% Read More

Polycarbonate also inherently blocks 99.9% of harmful UV rays. PVC panels like Palruf offer more chemical resistance which makes them ideal for areas that might be exposed to harsh chemicals or cleaners. They are slightly more rigid than polycarbonate but not as impact resistant. They are also a more economical option for a deck or patio cover. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Polycarbonate - Do not buy I agree with most of the other reviews on the low quality of these panels. They were in the sun while I was installing them and they got cloudy and lost their wavy structure. The edges curled up. One missed hammer and they break. Like others, now I have to replace the entire roof one more time. The purchase was my mistake. I did not even notice that these are not Polycarbonate that I have had on my house for 25 years with no issues. These are made of PVC and completely wrong for the application. Shame on manufacturer and Home Depot for selling this garbage. I don't care about the cost. The work that is involved in removing these and reinstalling new panels is what hurts the most. June 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible product, really deserves ZERO Star rating. Last year I purchased a lot of these panels to finish the roof and sides of a 25' x 18' greenhouse. They are very susceptable to temperature variations and fracture easily due to temperature changes. Heat makes them sag and warp then the cold causes them to break. I thought I may be able to repair them but am now rebuilding the entire greenhouse roof & siding because they were completely destroyed during a thunderstorm. Buying these panels is a complete waste of time & money. April 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by don't buy Spend the extra money so you don't have to do what I now have to do. Replace the panels with poly carbonate. The price is $13ish for pvc and $20ish for polycarbonate. I guess I thought it only need to stay in place but something hit it one of the panels and a big chunk came out. Under this hot houston sun, the pvc is very brittle and merely pressing up with my fingers will crack it. Considering the work I did to install it, it would have been smart to put panel that last much longer. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it My wife and I had it installed on our green house because the manufacturer claims it to be tough and weather resistant, we had it on for just two weeks and the very first hail storm(it was 1/2 inch size hail) broke through 20 of the 24 panels installed. Never spend your money on this product. Also note that the vendor didn't even try to help us to resolve the issue. The manufacturer would never return emails or phone calls. May 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from these panels Purchased 2 weeks ago to replace a roof on a shed. The shed is below some walnut trees. The black walnuts drop on to these sheets and take chips out of them. May work in a field but if walnuts chip large holes into them, they are worthless as a roofing material. October 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for outside use Dropped one piece off my 10 foot high pergola and it shattered on grass. I did not listen to further reviews and purchased because it was cheep, turned out to be a waste of money! After a week in the sun it became very very brittle (NC winter sun). A frisbee landed on it and it cracked the roof, tried to get it off with a stick and a ladder resulted in, 1) writing this review, 2) getting the polycarbonate stuff. I'm not sure what you would use this stuff for, Home Depot needs to discontinue this product. In the store it seems very durable and flexible, do not buy this product! This was a $200 donation to Home Depot....can I say it again, do not buy this product! January 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not recommended! These panels replaced fiberglass panels that had lasted about 20 years and were just starting to leak. However, these have lasted barely 3 years and are leaking far worse than the panels they replaced. Here are some of the issues: - when new they are brittle and hard to cut, handle without fracturing - after being in the sun have brown/black streaks and become very brittle at cold temperatures - soft in heat so that they dent permanently when say a cat jumps on it, the dents later potentially crack when temperatures drop to freezing - edges and seams curl up leading to leaks They are really not worth using on anything except very small projects where they are not on an enclosed structure that will get hot in the sun and you don't care about them breaking - considering their price, I really can't think of any use that I would recommend for them... January 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fine for what it is I have used this product as a rain cover for my chicken run that still allows for sunlight during the winter. The 8 foot panels fit my run width perfectly and for the past several months they have done the job well. I have had hickory nuts and small limbs fall on these panels with no breakage so far. They are fairly flimsy feeling but in the right application where properly supported, they should serve you well. My coop location is protected by several large trees so wind is not an issue. Falling limbs and nuts are, however, and so far so good. During the winter the sun is welcome on cold days and the clear panels allow for lots of sunshine for my hens. During inclement weather they have provided for rain and snow protection. I would not want to put these where I would need to climb on them, but for what they are, they work well. January 4, 2016
