Both glass pane and acrylic sheets can be used for building greenhouses.
But to know which is the better material for a greenhouse, we will compare their characteristics and properties such as:
When it comes to which is more efficient, the acrylic sheets are much more efficient.
The acrylic sheet has the ability to diffuse light. For greenhouses, diffused light is very important in order for the plants to grow optimally. The diffused light is very important so all the plants will get the same amount of light.
The plants will grow when there is 70% up to 75% of light. And the acrylic sheets can provide that. They can diffuse light better than the typical glass. Using acrylic sheets will help you save the cost of artificial heating.
Also, the acrylic sheets have a natural UV filter. Due to that, they can protect all the plants from extreme exposure to the damaging UV rays.
- Light weight
The acrylic sheet is better in terms of being lightweight.
The acrylic sheets are very lightweight. In fact, they weigh less than half the weight of the glass sheet.
Since they are very light in weight, they are also easy to install, unlike the glass panes. When installing the glass pane, it will require a lot of support since they are very heavy. Installing the glass pane also needs you to be extra careful because they might drop and be broken.
In terms of which can provide a long-lasting service, the acrylic sheet also comes first.
A greenhouse is prone to damage because it is an in-house garden. So, if you have children in the house, they might run into the greenhouse or play with a ball. And that may lead to accidents.
There is a possibility that the greenhouse will be hit. So, a greenhouse that is made of glass is risky.
On the other hand, a greenhouse that is made of acrylic sheets is able to bear a strong impact. They are very strong and don’t break easily.
In fact, they are 6 to 7 times more durable than glass panes. Glass is very fragile and it breaks easily, unlike the acrylic sheets.
We can tell that the acrylic sheets are better when it comes to which is safer.
The greenhouse that is made of glass is dangerous especially when they break. When they are hit or dropped, they will break and shatter into tiny, sharp, and many broken pieces. And that can possibly harm the people that is around the broken glass.
However, the greenhouse that is made of acrylic sheets will not break easily when hit. They are highly resistant to impact and it will take a lot of force to break them. But if they did really break, they will not break and shatter on the ground as the glass panes do. They are shatter-resistant.
When the acrylic sheets are broken, they will break into large and dull-edge pieces. Therefore, the acrylic sheets are safer to use for the greenhouse.
A few years ago, many people do not use the acrylic sheets for greenhouses because they seemed expensive.
But as the time goes by, the price of acrylic sheets is decreasing. Therefore, many people nowadays are starting to use the acrylic sheets for constructing greenhouses.
- Extended growth of plants
Because of the characteristics and features of the acrylic sheets, they help in the optimal growth of the plants in a greenhouse. They help you in growing your plants, vegetables, and fruits all over the year.
To sum up, the acrylic sheets are better for building greenhouses. They are better when it comes to efficiency, being lightweight, cost-effectiveness, safety, durability, and helping in the optimal growth of plants.
The acrylic sheet has a great resistance to weather so they will last for a long time when used outdoors.
In fact, when used for outdoor greenhouses, they can survive up to 15 to 30 years and they will not fade or discolor.
They can last up to those years without chipping and losing their durability. They will also retain their clarity, beautiful appearance, and high light transmission after many years.
The acrylic sheets for the greenhouse have a very high light transmission.
In fact, they can transmit up to 92% of light or even more. That is why they are perfect for greenhouses because the plants need about 70% up to 75% light.
Since the acrylic sheets will be used for greenhouses, they must have the characteristics that are also important for the growth of the plants.
Characteristics such as:
- High impact strength

- Great weathering properties – They must be able to bear strong winds, heavy snow, high temperature, etc.

The thin acrylic sheets can be cut easily with a scriber or a knife. The thicker acrylic sheets can be cut using a jigsaw with a special blade for acrylic.
For building greenhouses, the acrylic sheets should be 3mm thick. 3mm is the standard thickness but it can be adjusted to meet your specific applications and needs.
As an example, for the curved parts of some greenhouses, using an acrylic sheet that is 1.5mm thick is okay. If not for the curved parts of greenhouses, a 1.5mm acrylic sheet is not highly suggested.
