SolarSoft diffuses light that is transmitted through the sheet, while transmitting a high level of PAR light (80%). The mechanical properties of ThermaGlas® SolarSoft can be considered the same as other types of ThermaGlas, such as clear and White/Opal.
Diffusing the sun’s direct radiation has been found to be beneficial for plants. With ThermaGlas SolarSoft, plants or flowers get very high levels of PAR light, but direct radiation of infrared is removed, which helps to reduce leaf temperature and plant burning. Furthermore, light penetrates deeper into the canopy, improving plant growth.
SolarSoft can also be beneficial for humans. A person standing under ThermaGlas SolarSoft, while receiving almost the same amount of light as with Clear, will not feel harsh heat-giving radiation from the sun, and therefore will feel much more comfortable.
The SolarSoft resin component is UV protected with the same co-extrusion protection as all other ThermaGlas products. (99.9% UV protection).
ThermaGlas Multi-wall Polycarbonate Sheet is designed and engineered specifically for commercial greenhouse use. ThermaGlas products are available in 4-foot or 6-foot widths in clear, or with specially formulated colors and tints. ThermaGlas offers 99.5% UV protection. . The multiwall design and light weight of the sheet enables a reduction in the cost of the supporting structure. Shatterproof polycarbonate coupled with integrated UV resistant co-extruded layer yields long service periods backed up by a 10 year limited warranty. The cellular multi-layer structure reduces heating costs in winter while minimizing excessive heat in summer. A special coating on the bottom side eliminates condensation dripping. ThermaGlas blocks ultraviolet rays that burn plants and living tissues, and transmits only beneficial radiation.
