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.

Stella and Simon, a couple of back-to-the-land, baby boomer enthusiasts, have embraced the world of homemade hydroponics on their three-acre plot of Florida piney woods. Their journey began after drawing inspiration from Epcot Center’s hydroponics exhibit, and they've delved into various hydroponic methods, experimenting with different systems, configurations, and crops both indoors and outdoors. Their expertise culminated in the creation of an innovative homemade hydroponics greenhouse, documented in their book, Simon’s Super Simple On-the-Grid, Off-the-Grid Hydroponic/Aquaponic Survival Greenhouse.
