Solexx greenhouse covering installation tips
Before you add Solexx panels to your greenhouse, you’ll want to know these tricks of the trade.
- if your paneling is bent from shipping, lay it out on a flat surface in a warm environment to flatten it out
- install Solexx coverings while the temperature is the normal average for your area to allow for contraction and expansion in the limits of your normal weather
- if you need to cut your panels, attach them first to your greenhouse, then use a sharp utility knife to go around the frame
- to achieve the R-values, fill the end of the flutes with a bead of clear silicone caulking before installation. This helps trap the air inside the flutes Check the video below for how to caulk the panels.
