Polycarbonate Rigid Glazing Solutions

Dynaglas Corrugated Polycarbonate

DynaGlas has become an industry standard against which all other corrugated polycarbonate products for the horticulture market are compared. DynaGlas includes several products with a variety of features engineered specifically for commercial greenhouse use.

DynaGlas® was the first corrugated polycarbonate ever introduced to the commercial greenhouse market nearly three decades ago. Since then, DynaGlas has become an industry standard against which all other corrugated polycarbonate products for the horticulture market are compared. DynaGlas includes several products with a variety of features engineered specifically for commercial greenhouse use.

With more than 200 million sq. ft. installed worldwide, DynaGlas Plus® is the leading corrugated polycarbonate product for the commercial greenhouse industry. DynaGlas Plus features built-in condensate control that is so effective, it’s guaranteed for 10 years.

In general, polycarbonate is inherently susceptible to condensate formation, especially when used to cover totally enclosed environments like greenhouses. DynaGlas Plus is made with an exclusive manufacturing process that results in the industry’s first and most extensive 10-year condensate control warranty. Because effective condensate control is such a critical need for greenhouse growers, the “Plus” condensate control feature is now built-in to every DynaGlas product.

DynaGlasAll DynaGlas products feature built-in condensation control that is second to none. In fact, the performance is so good it’s backed by a 10-year limited warranty.

Visual Defects (inclusions, bubbles, black specks, gel, etc.)If defect is not visible by inspection from a distance of 1 meter, it is not considered to be a defect. Surface abrasion may occur in transit. This is not
considered a defect as DynaGlas is not intended for “architectural optical
clarity” applications. This type of abrasion will not affect durability.

DynaGlas Solar Soft

DynaGlas® is now available with exclusive SolarSoft™ pigmentation. SolarSoft features all the advanced technology of DynaGlas Plus, such as 100% UV protection and guaranteed condensate control, but with SolarSoft pigmentation, you reap the benefits of up to 100% light diffusion. The purpose of this added technology is to diffuse the light that is transmitted through the sheet, while still transmitting a high level of PAR light (85% or 90%). The mechanical properties of DynaGlas SolarSoft can be considered the same as other types of DynaGlas, such as Clear, LDT, White/Opal or Gray. Diffusing the sun’s direct radiation has been found to be beneficial for plants. With DynaGlas 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 people. A person standing under DynaGlas SolarSoft, while receiving almost the same amount of light as with Clear, will feel reduced radiation from the sun; and feel much more comfortable. The SolarSoft resin component is UV protected with the same co-extrusion protection as all other DynaGlas products (99.9% UV protection). DynaGlas SolarSoft incorporates technology that has been used to manufacture polycarbonate products for other markets for several years, thereby ensuring excellent performance, durability, and UV protection.

All DynaGlas products feature built-in condensation control that is second to none. In fact, the performance is so good it’s backed by a 10-year limited warranty.

SolarSoft 90 is recommended for virtually any greenhouse application where light diffusion is desired. SolarSoft 85 is recommended for high light areas where shading is typically required during summer months, or where growers desire light transmission and diffusion similar to double-poly film or fiberglass.

Features & Benefits

  • High PAR light transmission (up 90%)
  • Diffused, softer light (up to 100% diffusion)
  • Less shadows cast by structural members and/or curtain systems
  • Deeper penetration of light into the plant canopy
  • 100% UV protection

Light Transmission Characteristics

DynaGlas offers the same sparkling clarity as glass. But because DynaGlas requires no shade casting glazing system, DynaGlas transmits as much as 7% more light than glass. DynaGlas Plus SolarSoft 85™ offers high light transmission (85%), but also offers 100% light diffusion, helping to spread light throughout the greenhouse and reduce shadows.
