will this material allow sun to penetrate it for growing plants

Asked by: Deano
Short answer is YES! UVB light is longer wavelength 315-400 nm invisible UV light that causes burning of the skin. UVA is frequency 280-315 shorter wavelength that penetrates further into the skin causing damage to your DNA with cancer and aging changes (doesn't burn and can't even be seen so it's in the sunlight from sunup to sundown--also known as blacklight). So the advertised 99% blockage of UV light is very desirable for us humans. Chlorophyll absorbs mostly blue and some red visible light. The wavelength range of blue light is 450-475 nm. The wavelength range of red light is 620-750 nm.

Does the Frequently Bought Together items include everythng needed to attach these panels to some lumber?

I am building a greenhouse and I would like to know how to attach the panels. The greenhouse's frame is made of lumber. If so, I notice that the attachment is 24 in, and the sheet is 26 in? Are they compatible?
Asked by: bramscho
You would need panels, closure strips and fasteners to start your project. You may or may not need flashings, such as ridge cap, wall connector, or side ridge, depending on the design of your project. The panels are 26" wide with a 24" net coverage and a 1 corrugation overlap.

26 in. x 8 ft. Polycarbonate Roofing Panel in Clear is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 19.

Worth it to pay up for this product if you are using this outdoors (ha ha). The cheaper clear plastic roofing gets brittle and fails within a year of Arkansas weather (16 to 100 degrees). This stuff doesn't fail and last literally for years. I use it to cover a section of my chicken coops yard and also to provide a wind barrier for the chickens underneath their coop. I use screws with wingnuts so I can put it on when it starts getting cooler (for the windbreak), the roof has been up for two years already.

This panel material cracks/splits, so unless your using the full sheet I'd highly recommend looking for another product. (Power tools with reversed blades chip out large chunks, thin cut scissors using small cuts crack out chunks, even a dremel with a 1" cut-off disk chips out and splits this stuff. I decided to keep trying different cutting tools and experimented with the entire sheet befor I gave up, nothing works if you want to cut this stuff to any length)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only lasts about 10 years in Florida Installed a Suntuf roof over my back porch in 2005. Worked great and the opal white let in the perfect amount of sun to provide some shade and let in enough light to for plants to grow like crazy. At the end of 2015 the panels started cracking... not along the ridges, but perpendicular to the ribbing. The cracks were pretty big and in a number of places. The installation was text book so I knew it wasn't from improper construction. I called the company because I saw limited lifetime warranty on their literature. They said the warranty was only for discoloration and the person on the phone confirmed that the roof panels only last about 10 years. I live in Florida. No snow, but lots of heat and sun. Ordered the same panels because the roof is made specifically for them and I like the amount of light that shines through. Not looking forward to replacing them in ten years though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Replaced 40-year-old fiberglass panels with these polycarbonate panels about eight years ago on a rental property. The fiberglass worked fine but it's almost opaque...I needed transparent panels because the cover is on the east; otherwise it's too gloomy in the winter. Installed with neoprene gasketed self-drilling screws. They still look new after eight years of intense mile-high-altitude sunshine, three feet snowfalls, and 1/2" hail. Perfection! IMHO the square corrugation profile is appropriate in an urban area. Much more acceptable than the old fashioned curved profile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for my re-purposed greenhouse! After searching for the perfect roof for my re-purposed greenhouse that I made out of old windows, fence boards and tin I found these clear panels to be just what I needed. Being an older woman with limited carpentry skills I found the panels amazingly easy to work with. They were very easy to cut with tin snips and I was able to install them onto the roof by myself. They are very lightweight. If I hadn't gone and had to get stitches in my finger from using an old jigsaw (I should have purchased a new from Home Depot!) I would have had a finished product to show you. Oh well, I'll send more photos later :}

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survives Snow Loads I installed a number of the Suntuf clear panels in the summer of 2005 to cover my front and rear decks. Some people say they break easily, but mine have survived many feet of wet snow on them every winter. I think the secret to a good installation is to use fir strips every two feet and use the rubber washer on the metal roofing screws to hold them down. I live in serious snow country so over built everything under it to make sure it could handle the snow loads.
